Let’s answer a couple of frequently asked questions about hydraulic hoses and discover why we are an invaluable asset for our clients.
What are hydraulic hoses?
In order to understand PIRTEK, you have to learn about our craft! Hydraulic hoses are our specialty, and their purpose is to carry fluid that transmits force within hydraulic machinery. These hoses are made flexible and consist of multiple protective layers. The machinery these hoses are used for operates at high pressures and temperatures, but each piece of equipment differs. The lifespan of these hoses can be dependent on their use, some last multiple years while others can break down much quicker.
It’s important to note that these hoses are by no means permanent. Wear and tear is not always visible, and these hoses can lose life quickly if not treated properly. Usually, hydraulic hose or equipment manufacturers can give an accurate estimate of when to switch out an old hose for a new one. However, we don’t suggest that businesses do so on their own. The application of these hoses can greatly impact their lifespan, which is why PIRTEK is such a valuable partner.
