Hydraulic hose assemblies consist of a hydraulic hose with fittings at the end, ready to be installed into a hydraulic system. Hydraulic hose assemblies feature a flexible hose that is used to transport fluid from one component to another within a hydraulic mechanism or machine. The pre-installed connectors make assemblies ideal for easy integration into your system.
The hydraulic hose is usually made from a flexible rubber or wire, while the hose fittings are often made from a corrosion-resistant metal, such as stainless steel. Hydraulic hoses are often used in high-pressure environments so are required to be flexible and strong.
Hydraulic hoses are made up from several layers to help to remain flexible but are reinforced for strength. The hoses tend to be made of three layers,
It is important to choose a hose assembly which features a fitting/coupling that is compatible with where you wish to install it. This is usually a threaded connection, such as a G 1/4 or a G 3/8 female connector.
