Understanding system requirements
To have a durable and efficient hose assembly, it's crucial to understand the system requirements.
Start by analyzing the unique pressure needs, including both steady-state pressures and unexpected pressure surges. Misidentifying or failing to identify pressure requirements can lead to early hose failures or even hose bursts.
In vacuum applications, it's worth considering whether the hose can handle negative and positive pressure.
Furthermore, it's important to take into account various environmental conditions, especially in specialized environments such as underwater applications, in hydraulic systems and chemical applications.
