What is Hydraulics?
Hydraulics is the branch of applied science and engineering that deals with liquids at rest and in motion, or under pressure in the design and control of machines. Hydraulics can be seen in countless devices across industries. A hydraulic lift is an example of the usage of Hydraulics as one of the most important equipment used in transportation of goods and people. Through the optimal use of hydraulics, the lifts are able to carry heavy loads with great ease. Hydraulic lifts come in the form of passenger lifts, and service lifts to carry goods to higher floors, etc.
Applications of Hydraulics:
Hydraulics have varying industrial and commercial applications, hydraulics is seen in heavy machinery during calibration, repair and installation of rail, in bolting with hydraulic torque wrenced, hydraulics can also be seen at work when fuel pumps draw liquid fuel from their storage tanks and dispense into other locations like our cars and trucks, hydraulics are seing at work in vehicle lifts or trucks used to lift materials for lading them on trucks, airplanes and jets use hydraulics in them from the landing gear to operating the ruthers for directional movemement when flying. To mention but only very few hydraulics finds usefulness in numerous areas.
Hose couplings and fittings:
How do I choose a hydraulic hose?
When choosing a hose you should consider the pressure rating, temperature range, cover material and bend diameter among other factors. Before assembling a rubber hydraulic hose, clean it internally! Use brackets and supports wherever required to maintain the best hose position, and to avoid unnecessary flexing.
Where can I buy crimping hoses in Nigeria?
GZ Industrial Supplies have different sizes and capacities of crimping machines, cutting machines and even the pressure testing machine to above 3000 bars
What is the life expectancy of a hydraulic hose?
According to recorded reports just like auto tires, all hydraulic hoses have a shelf life. Depending on the type of hose, after 4 to 5 years the rubber begins to break down and you can expect to see visual cracking and weeping around the couplings. If you are using a lower quality hose, that can be even sooner.
What causes Hydraulic hose failures?
Hydraulic hose failure is most commonly caused by abrasion, poor routing, high temperatures, tube erosion, bent hoses near fittings, fluid incompatibility, and improper assembly. ... If high pressures are involved, there is also a potential risk of physical injury to employees when hoses burst.
