Many vehicles and industrial equipment or machinery use hydraulic hoses – as most are in daily use it’s not uncommon for them to break. A hydraulic hose breakage can happen at any time, whether it’s due to damage or general wear and tear. It’s important to be prepared.
Hydraulic hose ruptures can be harmful to workers, potentially leaking litres of high pressure fluid. Whenever equipment is in use, it’s important to regularly inspect hoses for signs of wear and tear and assess for potential leakage sites.
Common symptoms of a failed hydraulic hose include experiencing strange noises (often causes by aeration in the fluids), a loss of power and fluid leakage. These issues can come on suddenly or over time, it’s important to regularly inspect every aspect of the machinery to ensure proper running conditions. If damage is left unrepaired, it can cost thousands to repair the machinery – when it wasn’t a large cost to fix in the first place.
There are many reasons for failing hydraulic hoses, but the most common reasons are wrong hoses, improper assembly and surface damage. If you suspect leakage or loss of pressure – it is best to contact your local hydraulic hose repair specialist for more information. Trying to fix a hydraulic hose yourself can worsen the problem, never try to use a “quick fix” as this can put workers in danger.
