Petrochemical hoses are utilised mostly for petroleum fluid transfer, but can also be used for a wide variety of other applications due to their high resistance to chemicals, temperatures and wear and tear.

Aside from the hoses, we also sell couplings, fittings and Pirtek hose accessories to complement our range of hoses.

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.

Four things to look for when evaluating hydraulic hose suppliers in South Africa

With so many different brands and service providers to choose from in South Africa, it can sometimes be difficult to identify which hydraulic hose suppliers offer recognisable quality. Here are four tips on identifying a quality supplier.

Quality products

Primarily, a great brand will only offer great quality products. The supplier should only offer products that meet international industry standards in terms of quality and performance. Furthermore the supplier should be prepared to attach their name to those products by way of branding. Generic or unbranded products should be avoided if possible.

Great service

A progressive brand will ensure that they offer great customer service. This is evidenced in how rapidly they respond to imminent problems, how effectively they identify and attend to challenges, as well as how far they are willing to go to resolve problems.

Effective customer service

After you have evaluated the quality of the products and services on offer, it’s important to ensure great customer service as a whole. This is vital in terms of the complete client experience. Having great products coupled with great services are excellent on their own, but customer service broadly will ensure clients are retained and kept satisfied long term.

Your brand experience as a consumer

Finally, consider your experience with the brand. If you visit their premises, is it clean, safe and environmentally friendly? Are the staff courteous and friendly? These are, of course, subjective, but finding a brand that you feel comfortable with will certainly help you achieve peace of mind.
