Hydraulic hoses are used to transport materials that cannot be distributed by hand. Things like petroleum oil, synthetic oil, any liquid with high water content. Hoses are also used for high temperature liquids or those liquids being transported with high or low pressure readings. Hoses help to ensure that the materials will be moved to the right places without injuring employees or causing damage to the worksite.
You can find hydraulic hoses on a number of different worksites. Oil refineries use hoses to remove the sludge from the bottom of oil tanks or to replace or remove old oil. Factories use hoses when the product they are making uses water or another kind of liquid material. Mining companies use hoses to transport water to workers and to transfer materials. Gas companies use hoses to replace oil into tanks so that consumers can begin purchasing. Airports use hydraulic hose systems to bring fuel into the plane and remove waste. Construction companies use them to replace plumbing systems or to fix leaks. So as you can see, the uses for hydraulic hoses in the industrial field are endless. In our opinion, what there needs to be more of is hydraulic hose protection for these crucial elements of the jobsites.
If you are using hydraulic hoses and not outfitting them with protective devices, it could be a matter of time before you have a dangerous mess on your hands. Without proper protection, hoses can become damaged or broken thus leading to spills and environmental damage as well as the possibility of human injury as well. Industrial vehicles, human error, equipment malfunction, all of these could be the possible cause for a damaged hydraulic hose. However, it is easy to protect these hoses when you outfit them with a hydraulic hose protector from Brahman Systems.
