Can You Mix and Match Hose Manufacturers?

Cross Hose & Fittings is a Parker distributor, providing precision-engineered products that meet or exceed a variety of industry standards. Parker is synonymous with quality, and their products can be found on and around any production operation with moving parts. Although there are a number of manufacturers on the market, there are several reasons to use hose components from the same brand in a hydraulic assembly, and why Cross Hose and fittings uses only Parker hose components.

How Extreme Environments Affect Hydraulic Hose

Do you use hydraulic equipment in extreme conditions? Even if your operation is in a moderate climate, you may work in ice making, cold storage, asphalt production, or some other process in a hot or very cold environment.

Hydraulic Hose Pressure Ratings: Working Pressure vs Burst Pressure

When designing a hydraulic system or replacing a hose assembly, it’s important to know the conditions of its application. Specifically, the working pressure for the application and whether the pressure is dynamic or static. The working pressure is the highest amount of pressure that the hose assembly will operate under, including spikes. It must be accounted for and never guessed or assumed.
