How is a high pressure hose identified?

Inside Diameter, or I.D., is the primary measurement used in identifying a hose’s size. A ¾ inch hydraulic hose means the inside diameter of that is ¾ of an inch. Fittings that are used for a hose assembly will be identified by the same inside diameter measurement, i.e. a ¾ inch fitting for a ¾ inch hose I.D.

What is a high pressure hose used for?

High pressure water hose is also called water jetting hose. It can help to clean yards or outdoors without effort because of the high pressure function. Therefore it is widely used in many industries such as construction, and agriculture.

What are the hazards of a hydraulic system?

Popular hydraulic systems must store fluid under high pressure. Three kinds of hazards exist: burns from the hot, high pressure spray of fluid; bruises, cuts or abrasions from flailing hydraulic lines and hydraulic injection of fluid into the skin. Safe hydraulic system performance requires general maintenance.

What do the notches indicate on high pressure hose fittings?

Metric (Notches in the nuts of fittings indicate that they are metric – Cold Hose.

How do you identify a hydraulic coupling?

With the caliper, measure the thread diameter of the largest point (Outside Diameter (O.D.) of male threads; Inside Diameter (I.D.) of female threads). Using the thread gauge, determine the number of threads per inch. Comparison of gauge and coupling threads against a lighted background will ensure an accurate reading.

Do high pressure water hoses work?

A typical 3/8” hose lowers the output pressure with 20 to 50 PSI. But with a higher output pressure of 1500 PSI or more, you need an extremely long hose before you notice the effect. If you use a 200 ft hose, it will lower the 1500 PSI to 1400 PSI. Or from 2500 PSI to 2400 PSI, still enough to do most jobs.

What are the most common causes of hydraulic system failure?

Air and water contamination are the leading causes of hydraulic failure, accounting for 80 to 90% of hydraulic failures. Faulty pumps, system breaches or temperature issues often cause both types of contamination.

What are the hazards of compressed air?

Common risks include. Foreign objects getting lodged under the skin or flying particles cutting or bruising the body. Foreign particles are blown into eyes or eye injuries that can cause loss of sight. The injection of an air bubble into the blood stream that can lead to a fatal embolism.

How do you identify hydraulic threads?

Four Steps to Thread Identification

  1. Step 1 – Determine if the thread is tapered or parallel. NPT/NPTF and BSPT are tapered threads while UN/UNF and BSPP are parallel.
  2. Step 2 – Determine the pitch.
  3. Step 3 – Determine the size.
  4. Step 4 – Designate the thread.
