A hydraulic hose is used in a variety of industries and applications to convey fluid power or energy between two points. It is comprised of three main components: the inner tube, the reinforcing layer, and the cover.
Hydraulic hoses are available in several different materials, including nitrile (NBR), chlorinated polyethylene (CPE) and thermoplastics, and fluorocarbons such as PTFE.
Hydraulic hoses are designed to be robust and flexible. They have a high pressure capacity and are constructed with a reinforced inner tube. This reinforcement can be braided or spiral-wound metal wire or textile yarn.
