Hydraulic hose assemblies are used in many applications, but no matter the job, they carry fluids under extreme pressure to provide power to operate equipment. From the truck on the highway to the rollercoaster ride at your favorite amusement park, hydraulics help safely operate, control, and power many types of equipment.
To be effective, and safe, a hydraulic assembly must include the correct hose for the application that meets pressure requirements and flow capacity. It also must have the correct fittings for the hose being used and proper installation of the fittings onto the hose. Fittings can be installed either by crimping (as in most of hydraulic hose applications) or by installation of a screw-on hose end.
