High quality hose assemblies are vital for the efficient and safe operation of hydraulic machinery. Incorrect hose assembly increases the potential for components to separate under extreme pressure, spraying hot fluid around the working environment. At the very least, this causes disruption to the production line while equipment is taken out of service and hydraulic fluid is cleaned up. In the worst case scenario, line operatives may be severely injured by hot or corrosive fluid, or hose whips.
Hydrastar supplies the full range of Gates crimping equipment to help you create robust and safe hose assemblies for your production line and minimise the possibility of hose lines separating – and the Gates eCrimp app will make your workshop even more efficient.
