When you think about it, hydraulic machinery is really some incredible equipment, and the tasks that it can accomplish can be downright amazing. Moving rocks and trees or huge amounts of soil, crushing old buildings, and relocating enormous piles of material, all call for incredibly capable equipment.
In order to carry out tasks like these, high-pressure hydraulic fluid has to flow continuously throughout the hydraulic system of your machinery. Hydraulic lines are generally designed to be extremely robust, so they can handle this kind of high-pressure, while also being flexible enough to move in response to your equipment’s motions.
Sometimes this calls for a great deal of pressure exerted at extreme angles, and the most intense pressure will always be exerted where hydraulic hoses come into contact with solid points. This, of course, is where the line connects to a fitting, and the fitting is connected to pumps, valves, rigid pipes, or hydraulic cylinders.
Because the fitting itself is obliged to remain stationary, there can be tremendous force is applied when your equipment is moving or being operated. Due to all this, it’s very common to develop hydraulic tubes leaks, generally at the point where the hose connects to a solid fitting. It’s also possible that your hydraulic hose has grown old in place, and no longer has the elasticity or flexibility that it did when it was new.
Whenever any kind of hydraulic leaks or damage occurs to your hydraulic piping, the quick quickest way to get your equipment back online and functional is to call the experts at Sapphire Hydraulics. Our specialists have seen every kind of hydraulic hose problem in existence, and they’ll be able to fix whatever the problem is very quickly.

When you’re talking about standard hydraulic hose sizes, there are three key factors that need to be accounted for: outer diameter, inner diameter, and the length of the hose. The reason that outer diameter is so important is that it has to be coupled to the appropriate fitting or other system components, and it measures the whole span of the tube itself, including the tube, the reinforcement, and the cover.
The inner diameter refers to the empty space in any circular hose which has the ability to impact flow velocity. For instance, a hose with too great an inner diameter will cause performance to be sluggish, while an undersized inner diameter can cause leaks and other damage to the system. The length of the hose is, of course, the maximum distance between the two endpoints.
This is important because the length has to be just right, so there’s no drop in the pressure throughout the hydraulic system. All our Sapphire Hydraulics technicians are well aware of the sizing factors related to standard hydraulic hoses, and they will be well capable of determining the appropriate size for any hydraulic hose repairs you might need.
