Temperature / Ambient Temperature
& life of a Hydraulic Hose assembly can get substaintially
affected if the fluid temperature and/or ambient temperature are
beyond the recommended range. Generally all Hydraulic Hose Assemblies
are suitable to work satisfactory for a Petrolium based Hydraulic
oil temperature ranging from -400C to +1000C.
This recommended temprature range changes substantially if the
Hydraulic medium is water or any other specific liquid. High external
temperature can shorten the life of flexible hose. Wherever possible
it should be kept away from hot manifolds and other sources of
heat. Other way of protecting the hose is by using heat protective
sleeves, baffle plates or using thermal insulation braiding.
