A hydraulic hose is utilized anywhere in a hydraulic system requiring a versatile connection between two fluid ports. A hydraulic hose is a synthetic rubber tube surrounded by some sort of versatile strength enhancing winding, such as metal or fiber, and after that covered in another rubber carcass. The support windings are what give the hose its flexibility and strength, and these reinforcements can be either braided or spiral wound.
Hydraulic hoses are utilized for two primary purposes; to permit movement between two port locations or to reduce the effects of vibration. Hydraulic hose can also be utilized for secondary reasons, such as for ease of installation or accessibility of hose manufacturing equipment. Because hose is versatile, it is easy to line it up with ports that may not be well aligned or have been modified, where tube or pipe must be more precise to fit the installation, as they are more rigid. Also, most cutting and crimping equipment is widely available, but fewer stores bring the strong tube flexing and flaring equipment, particularly in the larger sizes.
When hydraulic hose is utilized for its primary purpose of joining ports on two moving components, it should be versatile sufficient to flex as the components move, such as between the jib and boom arms of an excavator. The flexibility of the hose is figured out by its pressure rating (and variety of support windings), its diameter and its material building. Hoses utilized in this fashion are equipped on mobile equipment of every type, cable carriers on injection molding makers or automation, hydraulic presses, tractor executes, et al.
Hydraulic hose is also the plumbing of choice to moisten sound and vibration in hydraulic equipment. Some pump types release pressure waves into the fluid as gears or pistons reach the pressure chamber, which in turn resonates and vibrates metal plumbing or components. This resonance is related to the combined size, shape, mass and geometry of the plumbing, components, reservoir and fittings. This resonance is hard to forecast before a power unit or device is fabricated. Nevertheless, the frustrating resonance can be enhanced by switching rigid tube or pipe with hydraulic hose. Hose pipe’s inherent flexibility and flexibility can soak up some vibration triggered by pumps, decreasing the resonance, or changing its pitch, so that sound is decreased in intensity.
Load and Pin Sizes: Cylinder size is figured out by cylinder load and pin size. Stroke length is based on cylinder function. See single-acting cylinders to select cylinder. Double-pull, locking, and single-acting and double-acting boom vang cylinders are also available. See charts for loads, pin sizes, and stroke lengths.
Alternate End Fittings: Picking the appropriate end fittings for your cylinders is important. See Ordering for end-fitting options.
Select valves based on sailing design and valve design, type, and functions. Choose between multifunction panel and private valves, Requirement or Grand Prix styles. Single or double-acting valves are based on cylinder type.
Specific Valve Assemblies:
Specific valve assemblies are dependent on how the boat is sailed. Multiple control locations? Single control locations? Choose valve, manifold configurations, and panel types. See valves and manifolds.
Multifunction Valve Panels and Single-function Panels: Choose plate products. Single and multifunction panels come with a 2-speed pump, pump handle, and reservoir. See MVP-1 & MVP-4 control panels.
Remote Dump Valves: Are remote dump valves needed? Example: vang cylinders.
Specific valves require a separate pump. The number of? 2-speed or 3-speed? Option depends upon oil volume, how quick oil should move, and pressure needed. Select adequate handle. See pumps and handles.
Tank Type: Tank type is figured out by the amount of oil required and pump height relative to the reservoir. Use a pressurized reservoir if it is installed more than 1.5 m (5 ft) vertically listed below the pump. Vented tanks are adequate under 1.5 m (5 ft).
Tank Size: As a general guideline, select reservoir size by adding up cylinder volumes and increasing by 2.
Filters: Harken highly recommends a high-pressure filter between the pump and valves to keep valves operating at peak efficiency. Also suggested: a suction filter for the pump to prevent debris from going into the system.
Gauges: Remote analog evaluates and digital transducers available.
Fittings: Plumbing fittings, additional spares, blanking plates, and extra parts available.
