Phydro hose tips

Seven ways to extend the life of industrial hoses

Hoses are common place throughout industry, providing a practical and effective method for conveying or transferring liquids and gases.

External factors found in the working environment can have an adverse effect on the hose considerably reducing its life span – factors such as extreme temperatures, humidity, sunlight, oils, solvents, surfactants, welding spatter, corrosive atmosphere or exposure to aggressive chemicals.

Although industrial hoses are generally considered consumable items and will need replacing from time to time, properly managing, using and storing hoses will help reduce and in some cases prevent premature failure, and will in most cases increase their perceived life expectancy which in turn reduces high maintenance costs.
