Making a hydraulic hose requires a great deal of expertise. This specialised part is crucial in keeping a wide range of machines running properly. Precise steps must be followed when creating a hydraulic hose to ensure the equipment functions as intended.
How to make a hydraulic hose the CHRONO Flex way
Making and installing hydraulic hoses on site is at the heart of what we do at CHRONO Flex. Here are the key stages in the process our technicians use to create high-quality hydraulic hoses:
1. Assessing the situation
Assessing the situation involves gathering all the relevant information about what needs to be done, in particular the characteristics of the defective hydraulic hose.
2. Securing the site
One of the most important things about working on site is taking appropriate safety precautions. All of our technicians have to keep themselves and anyone else in the area safe. At CHRONO Flex, our technicians are required to set up a safety plan before taking any further steps.
3. Removing the used hose
Once the area is safe, the CHRONO Flex technician removes the defective hydraulic hose.
4. Establishing what new hose is needed
To make a new hose, you need to know the various characteristics and measurements required such as length, calibre, diameter and hose material (find about more about choosing a hydraulic hose).
5. Cutting the new hose
When the size of the new tube has been determined, the tubing needs to be cut with a saw.
6. Crimping the hose
The crimping stage attaches the different parts of the hydraulic hose together. The tube, sleeve and fitting have to be joined together.
7. Cleaning the hydraulic hose
The hose needs to be cleaned in order to remove anything that could obstruct the tube. Once the part is clean, it’s ready to be installed.
8. Installing a new hose
The new hose is now finished and ready to be put into position on the machine.
9. Testing the machine
It’s essential to test the machine to ensure that it’s operating correctly and that the hydraulic hose is reliable.
10. Call-out report
At CHRONO Flex, our hydraulic hose specialists give clients a full report of their work, including the nature of the problem, time spent on site, data on the new part and a photo of the defective part.
