Hydraulic Hose Ends

Filed Under (Blog, Hose Fittings, Hydraulic Hose and Fittings) by marketing on 16-10-2014

Tagged Under :

Hose assemblies are installed on hydraulic systems through use of threaded, flanged or tube welded ends. Factors involved in the selection of the proper hydraulic hose end are:

Fluid Compatibility: Carbon steel is the most common metal used in the fabrication of hydraulic hose ends. Brass and stainless steel products are also available.

System Pressure Requirements: Will the hose end be subject to positive pressure (measure in Psi, Bar or kPa) or negative pressure (inch HG)? hydraulic fittings

System and Environmental Temperatures: What will be the maximum temperature of the fluid running through the hose assembly? What is the temperature range that the exterior of the hose assembly will be subject to?

Installation Design: The following types of installation methods are available for hydraulic hose ends:

Crimp: Either one piece or two piece ends comprised of a hose stem and external ferrule. The end is connected to the hose by radially crimping or compressing the ferrule around the outside of the hose. Crimpers are available that are powered by electric hydraulic pumps, air over hydraulic pumps and hand pumps. This method can be used to fabricate all types of hydraulic hose assemblies and offers the widest range of connection types.

Swage: Similar to crimp style hose ends, swage ends are one piece in design. Instead of being radially crimped, a swaged end is driven into a die set and compressed from the bottom up. Swagers are generally less expensive than radial crimpers but are limited in size and speed. The connections types available with a swaged stem are limited.

Reusable: Comprised of a hose stem and outer socket, reusable hydraulic hose ends can be applied with hand tools and a vise. Connection types and sizes are limited.

Hose Size: Hydraulic hose ends are available for hose inside diameters that range from 1/8” through 3”. Inside diameters are denoted using dash sizes.

Piranha Sewer Jetting Hose

Filed Under (Blog) by Amazon Hose on 05-06-2014

piranha sewer jetting hoseMeet our sewer jetting hose, the Piranha. The Piranha sewer jetting hose is constructed of rugged materials to handle the severe and damaging conditions found in high pressure sewer cleaning.

Designed to clear clogged drains and sewers, the Piranha comes in three hose cover colors which conform to industry standards for maximum operating pressure ratings. The three colors are:

  • “SP” orange = 2500 psi, available in sizes 5/8” – 1-1/4”
  • “HP” blue = 3000 psi, available in sizes ¾” & 1”
  • 
“LL” safety green = 4000 psi, available in sizes 1/8” – 3/8”

When choosing a sewer jetting hose the two most important things to consider are the weight and the diameter. If you want an easy to use, flexible hose that can’t handle high water pressure, then a small diameter and light weight hose could be the right fit. If you have high water inflow, on the other hand, a larger diameter hose is the way to go. You should choose a width and diameter that meet your specific needs.

AH&R staff can help you determine the right diameter and weight to meet your specific requirements. Please contact your local Amazon Hose & Rubber sales office today in Orlando, Tampa, or Miami to find the best hose for your job.

Pressure Washer Hoses

Filed Under (Products) by Amazon Hose on 02-03-2010

A pressure washer hose is a part of a pressure washer which is a mechanical sprayer, used for removing dust, dirt, loose paint, etc. It is major cleaning equipment. Its significance lies in the fact that the hose has to be able to bear the high pressure of the cleaning solution. The resistance of the hose is correlated to its quality. Following a stringent manufacturing process can help in achieving the high grade quality of hose.

What are the types of pressure washer hose?

Pressure washer hose are majorly of the following types:

Wire-braid high-pressure hose

These pressure hoses are quite sturdy and have high tensile strength. The inner wire braiding provides it a tough interior and makes it further more non corrosive. It can handle pressure ranging between 3000-1000 psi. The rugged and durable hoses can resist temperature up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit and usually have bend resistors at both ends too.

Non-marking pressure hose

The non- marking pressure hoses can be used on any surface without fearing that it might leave a mark. These are approved for pressure up to 4500 psi and can handle temperature up to 220 degrees Fahrenheit. These are highly used in the pressure washing industry because they are ideal when they come in contact with the cleaning solutions.

What should be considered when buying a pressure washer hose?

A buyer must keep in mind the following points while buying a pressure water hose:

  • Length: The length of the hose should be apt according to the job it is to be used for.
  • Diameter: The diameters of pressure washer hose are 1/4”, 5/16”, 3/8” being the small sized, mid-sized and the large sized respectively. The small ones can handle least pressure whereas the large ones can handle the maximum pressure and are preferred for professional use.
  • Material: The material used to manufacture high pressure hoses is PVC, rubber or polyutherane.
  • Connections: Connectors are metallic components which connect the hose to the pump and the spray. At both the ends connectors are present. Different types of connectors are used in different types of hoses.

Tips and Notes

  • A pressure washer hose being so essential to the entire pressure washer mechanism does face corrosion and abrasion with use and time. It needs to be replaced from time to time
  • Using a pressure washer hose becomes safe enough with the use of good quality hose.

  • Sewer jetting hose is stocked in full, pre-coupled roll lengths of 400’, 500’ & 600’. Other lengths available, upon request. Please contact Amazon for availability.

    How to Choose the Right Sewer Jetting Hose?

    High pressure water jetting hoses are the best tools to clear clogged drains and sewers in any industrial setup. Sewer jetting hoses are available in different specifications to meet different industry requirements. It is essential to have some knowledge of the types and attributes of sewer jetters to help you choose the right hose for your business.

    Choosing a Sewer Jetting Hose: Essential Considerations
    The two most important considerations for selecting a sewer jetting hose are:

  • The weight and
  • The diameter
  • A small diameter and lightweight sewer jetter offers flexibility and ease of use. It can move easily through clogged drains to reach the farthest place. A large-diameter heavy jetter is difficult to use and handle. However, the small diameter jetter suffers in performance. If the diameter is too small and the water supply is in large quantity, the hose can build pressure at the washer or pump end. On the other hand, a large diameter hose can handle high water inflow by creating sufficient pressure at the nozzle tip end.

    Thus, it is essential to determine the diameter and weight as per your specific requirements.
