Common Issues with Hydraulic Hoses
- External Damage: External damage, such as cuts, abrasions, or kinks, can compromise the hose's integrity. These damages often result from the hose rubbing against other machinery parts or external impacts.
- Age and Wear: Over time, hydraulic hoses can deteriorate from the inside due to the continuous flow of hydraulic fluid. This internal wear can lead to reduced performance and eventual failure.
- Incorrect Installation: Improperly installed hoses can lead to premature wear, kinks, or bursts. Ensuring correct installation is crucial for the hose's longevity and the safety of the machinery.
