How to Protect a Hydraulic Hose

In the industrial and commercial sectors, hydraulic hose assemblies are generally exposed to rough and demanding environmental conditions that gradually cause damage and degradation. They are also subjected to constant motion and vibration that cause chafing and rubbing that leads to premature wear. While both situations ultimately result in hose failure, the time it takes to reach that point may vary based on the preventative measures employed.

In the following article, we outline some of the best methods of protecting hydraulic hoses from failure to extend their service life and save industry professionals time and money.

Guard Against Erosion

One of the leading causes of hose failure is erosion, which occurs when an external leak prompts the ingress of fluid into machinery. The protective measures against this issue are as follows:

  • Using the correct hose size for the system’s maximum velocity rating
  • Checking the hose is not too tight for the flow of the system and not too abrasive for the inner tube
  • Following the engineer specifications regarding installation that came with the hose at purchase

Ensure Fluid Compatibility

Another common cause of hydraulic hose failure is using incompatible process fluids, which can cause the inner tube component to swell or wash out. When selecting a hydraulic hose assembly for a system, ensure all construction materials—including for the outer coverings, inner tubes, fittings, and O-rings—are appropriate for the system’s process fluids.

Monitor Insertion Depth

During assembly operations, the hose should not be pushed beyond its insertion depth, as doing so can result in failure. Be sure to check the hose’s fitting shell, which indicates the strength of its holding. It is also a good idea to use depth blocks to gauge the hose and fitting connection to ensure the hose is fully inserted without being over-extended.

Stay Within the Bend Radius

When a hose surpasses its bend radius, the tube and its cover may rip apart. Checking the engineering specifications before installing and using the hose assembly can help prevent buckling during operations. Changing the fittings, lengths, and configurations employed can also protect the hose from exceeding the bend radius.

Avoid Contamination

Contamination can occur when cutting and inserting the hose during assembly operations. Any contaminants that enter the assembly can have significant impacts on the individual hose components (e.g., cause cracks on the inner tube) and the system as a whole (e.g., cause erosion). Before attaching the hose to the fitting, clean it properly—paying particular attention to the inner tube—to prevent debris and dust from entering in the first place. Once fully constructed, the assembly should be capped to prevent contamination during transportation and storage.

Prevent Overheating

When exposed to temperatures above their maximum rating, tubes are prone to stiffening and cracking. If the outer cover appears dried out or the hose assembly emits cracking noises, the hose assembly may be experiencing overheating. Prevention methods against this issue include using hose assemblies with higher temperature ratings and integrating thermal guards and shielding for the protection of the assembly.

Minimize External Abrasions

Nearly three-quarters of all hydraulic hose failures occur as a result of external damage to the assembly. For this reason, it is important to monitor and inspect equipment for signs of wear regularly. Excessive wear may be a result of components rubbing against each other or other unwanted movements. Protective hose accessories—such as sleeves, shielding, spring guards, and wraps—can minimize the damage experienced by the assembly.

    Mixing & Matching Hydraulic Hose and Couplings

    As we progress through our introduction of hydraulic hose and coupling products at Jason Industrial, there have been a number of requests for interchange to competitors’ hose and couplings.

    The term “interchange” needs to be clarified. No hydraulic hose or coupling is truly interchangeable because each manufacturer produces products that are tailored to their own processes and equipment. This is why mixing and matching is never recommended by anyone concerned about the satisfaction and safety of their customers and end users. Even though a particular hydraulic hose may carry the same SAE, ISO, or EN standard labeling, they are not made to the same tolerances and materials.

    The same is true for couplings, perhaps even more so. Nearly every manufacturer has developed their own unique designs customized for their own validated and approved hose products. Additionally, the assembly specifications for crimping these hoses and couplings are unique to each piece of equipment.

    Let’s focus on the coupling side of interchange for today’s discussion. Jason currently has three series of couplings for our hydraulic hose products.

    • The JB12 for our 1 or 2 steel braid reinforced hoses
    • The JB40 for our 100R12
    • The JB60 for our 100R13

    Other manufacturers may have one series that covers both wire braid and some wire spiral such as 100R12 or even 100R13 (skived). Others may have a series that covers thermoplastic hoses like 100R7 and can be crimped on certain wire braid hoses like 100R16, but not 100R2. While there are many similar examples, the bottom line is always the same: it is never going to be a one to one direct interchange.

    So how do you address this when you’re working with a customer who could move to Jason as a supplier? We recommend that you first sort out which hoses the customer is using or wishes to buy. Once you’ve established this list, evaluate the competitor’s couplings to identify an equivalent Jason part to provide the connector ends needed for the hoses we’re offering. This will ensure that the customer will have the correct hose and couplings for their needs when an order is processed.

    Think of “interchange” as more of a cross reference for the correct hose and necessary connections. Yes, it can get a little complex, but your Jason team can support you to guarantee the correct products. Don’t be afraid to ask if you need help or have any questions.
