The Importance of Maintaining Your Pirtek Hoses and Assemblies

Maintaining and caring for your Pirtek hydraulic hoses and assemblies is of vital importance – especially if you’d like your equipment to perform at optimum levels for extended periods of time. Simple checks and maintenance can alert you to any defects that may have developed with your rubber hoses or hydraulic hosing. Below we’ll take a look at a few simple steps you can take to ensure your Pirtek hoses and assemblies remain in optimal operating condition for as long as possible.

Regular visual inspections are a great way of checking for faults in your hoses. If you notice bubbles, peeling, cracking, or any other visual signs of wear and tear, you should definitely consider replacing the hose as soon as possible. A burst or leaking hose will naturally have a detrimental effect on the productivity of your business and has to be attended to urgently.

Cleaning of your hydraulic system is something you need to take very seriously. Failure to properly maintain or perform regular inspections on the system will lead to damage and ultimately the failure of your assembly. This could lead to damage of other hydraulic components such as filters or pumps which can be very costly.

For more information regarding hydraulic hoses and how you can effectively maintain them in optimal working condition, get in touch with the team at Pirtek today. Our consultants are always on hand to assist you with any queries or questions about our business or offerings.

Importance of the Pirtek hose tagging system

The Pirtek hose tagging system keeps track of all hoses supplied by each centre. This is a unique method of marking our hoses for easy tracking and identification. Each year our tags are represented by a different colour scheme and marked with the year of manufacture. Down time and inventory maintenance can be reduced because each hose will reflect the original supplier details and the parts used to create it.

The benefits of hose tagging are:

  • To ensure that the hoses are easily identified
  • Assembly details are easily accessible
  • Controlled inventory and maintenance
  • Supplier accountability in the event that a hose failed
  • Ability to preschedule maintenance to avoid downtime

The hose tagging system is a management tool which will improve the life cycle of your hoses through regular maintenance.   Tags should never be removed from the hoses as it will affect the condition of the warranty on the hose.

How to complete a hose tag:

 

1. Pirtek Logo at the top

2. Contact number of the originating Pirtek Centre

3. Year of manufacture

4. Enter the Hose Type

5. Enter the End Fitting A

6. Enter the End Fitting B

7. Over-all length of the hose

8. From left to right: Month of manufacture; End Fitting Orientation; Operator Number

 

So, ensure that your hoses are tagged in order to enjoy the freedom of free flowing production!
