When it comes to hydraulic hose repair & replacement, MAC Hydraulics technicians have experience with all types of hoses and fittings, as well as clamps or guards that are involved. We have worked with enough hydraulic systems to know how much slack needs to be left and what, if any, measures can be taken to prevent hose damage in the future.
Experienced Hydraulic Hose Repair & Replacement Technicians
When potential issues – such as leaking hoses – are identified, our highly trained technicians will determine if a repair will fix the issue or if the hose needs to be replaced, all while causing minimum disruption to the rest of the system. To avoid contamination, they practice a strict regimen of cleanliness during all maintenance, repairs, and replacements. MAC Hydraulics technicians always clean up, disposing of hydraulic fluids and oil that are released during the process. Our technicians also follow OSHA and related safety procedures to protect both themselves and the employees nearby.
Preventative Maintenance for Hydraulic Hoses
In any hydraulic system, large or small, the various components are connected to each other through hydraulic hoses, which are typically steel tubes or steel-reinforced rubber hoses. These hoses carry the hydraulic fluid, often under very high pressures, to different components. When they begin to leak, the results can range from a loss of efficiency all the way to a complete breakdown. When high-pressure lines are involved, leaks can cause life-threatening injection injuries. Hydraulic hoses have a finite life; they will eventually need replacement. At MAC Hydraulics, we handle hose inspection, replacement, and repair on regular schedules for our customers, as well as during emergency situations.
One of the major causes of hydraulic hose failure is frayed or brittle hoses, which can be identified before they cause issues. Periodic hose inspections, which is one of the services offered through MAC Hydraulics’ preventative maintenance programs, will identify problem hoses before they begin to affect the system. Other causes of hose failure include aging, overheating, incompatibility with the fluid being used, incorrect assembly, poor insertion depth, and bending the hoses too tightly. Fortunately, our technicians can identify these causes and provide guidance on how to keep them from happening again.
