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.

How Extreme Environments Affect Hydraulic Hose

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.

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.
