Preventative maintenance of your hydraulic hoses

A prudent measure to help avoid untimely & costly breakdowns is preventative maintenance of your hydraulic hoses. Early warning signs that could lead to premature failure to your hydraulic hoses include:- cracked or split covers, colour changes, abrasion or blisters – in addition connectors should also be checked for signs of leakage.

We would recommend that every three months you inspect the condition of your hoses, or more frequent inspections if your hydraulic systems are operating 24 hours a day or the hoses are exposed to harsh environmental conditions.

Fortunately, early identification of your hydraulic hose condition can aid your maintenance teams to minimise hose-related interruptions. However, given the unpredictable nature of hose failures, leaving damaged hoses in service for days or even weeks after discovery is not advised and we would recommend arranging a site visit from a reputable hydraulic hose company to manage the replacement in accordance with industry best practice.

If you experience a burst hose we have a team of skilled and experienced hydraulic engineers that are available at short notice, 24/7, to provide an on-site emergency repair service and supply hydraulic parts.
