A hydraulic tube is utilized throughout a hydraulic system requiring a flexible connection between two fluid ports. A hydraulic tube is an artificial rubber tube surrounded by some sort of versatile strength enhancing winding, such as metal or fiber, and then covered in another rubber carcass. The support windings are what give the tube its versatility and strength, and these supports can be either braided or spiral wound.
Hydraulic tubes are utilized for two main functions; to permit movement between two port locations or to lower the results of vibration. Hydraulic tube can also be utilized for secondary reasons, such as for ease of setup or accessibility of tube production equipment. Because tube is versatile, it is simple to line it up with ports that may not be well lined up or have been customized, where tube or pipe need to be more accurate to fit the setup, as they are more stiff. Also, most cutting and crimping equipment is commonly available, but less shops carry the heavy duty tube flexing and flaring equipment, particularly in the bigger sizes.
When hydraulic tube is utilized for its main function of signing up with ports on two moving components, it must be versatile enough to bend as the components move, such as between the jib and boom arms of an excavator. The versatility of the tube is determined by its pressure ranking (and number of support windings), its size and its material construction. Pipes utilized in this style are geared up on mobile equipment of every type, cable providers on injection molding makers or automation, hydraulic presses, tractor implements, et al.
Hydraulic tube is also the plumbing of choice to moisten sound and vibration in hydraulic equipment. Some pump types produce pressure waves into the fluid as equipments 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 challenging to anticipate before a power unit or device is produced. Nevertheless, the bothersome resonance can be enhanced by switching stiff tube or pipe with hydraulic tube. Hose’s innate flexibility and versatility can soak up some vibration caused by pumps, decreasing the resonance, or altering its pitch, so that sound is lowered in strength.
Load and Pin Sizes: Cylinder size is determined by cylinder load and pin size. Stroke length is based upon 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: Choosing the right end fittings for your cylinders is important. See Ordering for end-fitting choices.
Select valves based upon sailing design and valve design, type, and functions. Select between multifunction panel and individual valves, Standard or Grand Prix designs. Single or double-acting valves are based upon cylinder type.
Specific Valve Assemblies:
Specific valve assemblies depend on how the boat is sailed. Several control locations? Single control locations? Select valve, manifold setups, and panel types. See valves and manifolds.
Multifunction Valve Panels and Single-function Panels: Select plate products. Single and multifunction panels come with a 2-speed pump, pump handle, and reservoir. See MVP-1 & MVP-4 control board.
Remote Dump Valves: Are remote dump valves required? Example: vang cylinders.
Specific valves require a separate pump. The number of? 2-speed or 3-speed? Choice depends on oil volume, how quick oil must move, and pressure required. Select appropriate handle. See pumps and handles.
Reservoir Type: Reservoir type is determined by the quantity of oil needed 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 reservoirs are appropriate under 1.5 m (5 ft).
Reservoir Size: As a basic guideline, select reservoir size by accumulating cylinder volumes and multiplying by 2.
Filters: Harken extremely 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 particles from going into the system.
Gauges: Remote analog evaluates and digital transducers available.
Fittings: Plumbing fittings, additional spares, blanking plates, and extra parts available.
