Hose assembly options: cleaning, protecting, labelling and testing


Cleaning hydraulic hoses

Contamination is the cause of 80% of problems with hydraulic systems. Contamination can arise during the hose assembly process. For this reason, it is advisable to clean the hoses:

  • With fluid: an effective method, but one that is very labour intensive and costly. There is also the risk that residual fluid will remain in the hose.
  • With a plug: an 'ultra clean foam plug' (according to NAS Class 6 specifications) is forced through the hose to remove particles of rubber and steel.

After cleaning, we apply one of the sealing methods to keep the hose clean.



Protecting hydraulic hoses

After cleaning, the hose is placed in a bag as standard. This protects the hose against contamination. We also, however, offer other options:

  • Capping of the ends
  • Complete packaging of the hose

You can indicate your preference when ordering.



Labelling hydraulic hoses

Kramp offers the following options for labelling hydraulic hoses:

  • We provide the hydraulic hoses with a label protected by plastic tape, if required bearing an article number, production date or other information (this service is standard)
  • We can also engrave the swage ferrules for you



Testing hydraulic hoses

The hoses are tested by our specialists on the high pressure test bench. The tests can pressurise the hoses to up to 2400 bar. A guarantee certificate is provided.
