Hydraulic Hose & Fittings and more...
Hydraulic hose and fittings has an important role in the smooth and efficient operation of a hydraulic equipment. A perfect hose and fitting combination helps in the fluid power transmission in a hydraulic system leak-free which aids the overall safety of the equipment. There are many factors that are taken care of while selecting the right combination of hose and fittings for a leak-proof system. Also design and material also play crucial roles in the property of hoses. Leading players recommend to follow the process of 'STAMPED' (Size, Temperature, Application, Material to be conveyed, Pressure, Ends or couplings, Delivery), to select the desired hose. As hydraulics are becoming more compact, the trend is towards more compact and highly flexible hoses and availability of hoses with different levels of performance, depending on the criticality of the application. The Feature on Hydraulic Hose and Fittings explores the market trends, new technology and product developments, importance of selecting the right combination of hose and fitting and market challenges and how major players are gearing up for the future demands.
