SMALLER HYDRAULIC HOSES ARE IDEAL FOR ENERGY CHAINS

Hydraulink is now supplying a tough and versatile hydraulic hose that is 30 per cent more compact that conventional types. The H-16 two-wire hose easily handles the pressures up to 466bar encountered in hydraulic systems in crane trucks and elevated working platforms (EWPs).

“A beauty of this latest Hydraulink innovation is that you can fit more hoses into energy chain structures within the vehicles, where they are far more protected from wear, tear and damage than individually routed hoses,” says Matt Taylor, who is Managing Director of Hydraulink Coffs Harbour, Macksville and Kempsey, an area of intense transport, civil engineering, electrical and infrastructure work.

“Instead of having to squeeze heaps of different types of hoses into limited space in the energy chain, we can use the one type of H-16 hose to more safely cover multiple roles. Because it is typically 30 per cent smaller in outside diameter, we can get 10 hoses easily into a space where previously it was a log jam to fit in eight.”

The compact high performance translates into big benefits, because not only can more hoses be fitted more easily into the energy chain where they are protected better, but also the maintenance job becomes easier to do in areas that are very tight on space and demanding within cranes and EWPs. The H-16 also offers half the minimum bend radius of the traditional hose types, as well as a highly abrasion resistant ‘super tough’ cover.

“Safety is an imperative,” says Matt Taylor. “If there is anything wrong with the hydraulics in a lift vehicle, users will tag it out immediately as unserviceable and send it to us to get it right. They appreciate the fact that we are on-call 24/7 and understand how important properly serviced hydraulics are to avoiding downtime.”

“There are heaps of things that can go wrong within the innards of hydraulically intense machinery like lift vehicles, so you have to know what you’re looking for and how to stop it happening. It’s not a game for mugs, safety is a serious business,” adds Taylor.
