Hydraulic breaker hose kit for excavators

All hydraulic hoses are high quality hoses with an abrasion resistant cover and customised to the required hose size.

The role of hydraulic hose for excavators

Hydraulic hose refers to the hose used in the hydraulic system, which is made of engineering plastics, made of rubber, usually called engineering hose. Engineering hose consists of the hose that conveys the medium, fittings. Construction hose is used to fix and limit the pressure, deformation, vibration and temperature change when the excavator is working. For the excavator is the most mainly used to transfer power and drive the travelling wheels of the special parts. As the main transport medium of the hydraulic system. Such as excavator hydraulic oil pipe, piping, etc.. Hydraulic pump through the hose to transfer power to change the excavator work performance; excavator oil pump output of hydraulic energy converted to mechanical energy (hydraulic oil) or liquid can make the mechanical energy to generate energy; control of the hydraulic system of the various actions of the executive element to achieve a variety of needs and requirements.

1. Prevent hydraulic oil leakage

Engineering hose is used to transmit the working pressure. When the pressure in the hydraulic oil circuit is reduced to the normal operating pressure, and there will be gas leakage from the oil. When the hydraulic oil leaks into the air will cause an explosion. Therefore, the oil pipe must have good sealing and corrosion resistance to prevent oil contamination. Ensure that the hydraulic oil does not leak when the excavator is working, so that the excavator works normally. This is one of the very important aspects of the excavator. With the hydraulic hose is also equivalent to a safety line of defence!

2. Ensure that the excavator digging force stable output

As the hydraulic system is composed of many components, in the work, each component will be affected by various factors. Which hose plays an irreplaceable role in this process. For example, when the excavator is working, there is a part of the excavator bucket with more soil and sand, this time it is necessary to use the hose, which is used to restrict the excavator from digging into the soil and sand, and to prevent the soil from splashing onto the hose and causing injury to the machine. If the excavator meets a large accidental movement while working it will lead to deformation of the excavator, which causes an imbalance in the digging force. When working, it is easy to have problems such as the excavator can not move or can not be pushed, it is necessary to replace the hydraulic hose. For example, when the excavator can not dig, the excavator begins to have a failure. At this time, if we also use the hose can prevent the excavator from digging force imbalance occurs, but also to ensure that the excavator in any conditions can be normal to complete the digging task or digging bucket rod rod normal movement in order to work properly. Reduce the damage to the excavator, but also improve the efficiency of the excavator.

3. Reduce excavator vibration and noise generation

As the hydraulic hose is made of rubber material. When the excavator uses the hydraulic hose greatly reduces the excavator vibration and noise generation, improves the working efficiency, reduces the excavator’s own noise. The main reason is that the hydraulic hose can greatly reduce the vibration of the excavator when working. Secondly, because the excavator will produce a certain amount of noise when working, and the hydraulic hose does not produce noise.

4. Reduce the working pressure of the excavator

The connector part of the hose, usually a rubber hose, is used to fix and limit the pressure when the excavator is working. If the pressure is too high, it will produce heat and burst; if the pressure is too low, it will cause the excavator can not work properly. The material of the hose is usually made of high-strength and high elasticity material, which serves to prevent deformation and impact and ensure the safety of mechanical parts. It is also capable of providing a non-slip effect. One more function is to prevent the driver or operator from unnecessary damage to the cab while driving. So in the operation of the excavator must pay attention to the hydraulic pipe and hose is intact or whether the quality is qualified and whether the timely replacement. If found aging or rupture should be replaced in time. The following is about the excavator hydraulic pipe use maintenance methods and precautions. Excavators in the work of pressure and temperature changes will cause oil temperature rise and leakage, the hydraulic system has an impact. And will produce heat to cause damage to mechanical parts, which is why the use of hoses need a long time can not be replaced due to reasons. So timely replacement and repair is very necessary.

5. Protect the hydraulic system

When the hose is too long, you can shorten the piping distance to prevent leakage. Filter the oil. When the pipe lumen blockage can be the oil through the hose from the pipe discharge. Prevent the oil from penetrating into the hydraulic line or hydraulic pump. Reduces hydraulic pump vibration and protects the hydraulic system. Extends service life.

Excavator hydraulic hose type

1. High-pressure hose: High-pressure hose is usually used in the part of the excavator hydraulic system that bears high pressure. High-pressure hose is pressure-resistant, wear-resistant, corrosion-resistant and so on, and can withstand the flow of high-pressure liquid. In the excavator hydraulic system, high-pressure hose is mainly used for hydraulic pumps, hydraulic cylinders and other components of the connection, to withstand the system of high-pressure liquid.

2. Medium-pressure hose: excavator hydraulic system in some medium-pressure part of the medium-pressure hose is usually used. Medium pressure hose has medium pressure carrying capacity, suitable for some small pressure hydraulic system components connection. In the excavator hydraulic system, medium pressure hose is commonly used in hydraulic motors, hydraulic valves and other parts of the connection.

3. low-pressure hose: excavator hydraulic system in some low-pressure parts usually use low-pressure hose. Low-pressure hoses are generally used for the connection of lubrication, cooling and other auxiliary functions in the hydraulic system. In the excavator hydraulic system, low-pressure hoses are commonly used in hydraulic tanks, lubrication systems and other parts of the connection.

4. High-temperature hose: excavator hydraulic system in some high-temperature environment is usually used in the part of the high-temperature hose. High-temperature hose has the characteristics of high temperature resistance, heat expansion resistance, etc., and can work normally in a high temperature environment. In the excavator hydraulic system, high-temperature hoses are commonly used in the engine hydraulic system, high-temperature hydraulic oil pipe and other parts of the connection.

The distribution of hose types in the excavator hydraulic system is selected according to different working scenarios and pressure requirements. At the same time, the material, inner diameter, wall thickness and other parameters of the hose also need to be matched according to the specific hydraulic system design requirements. When using hydraulic hoses, attention needs to be paid to regular inspection and replacement to ensure the normal work and safety of the hoses.

8. Check and test: After installing the new hydraulic pipe, check the connections for leaks. Start the excavator’s hydraulic system and observe whether there are leaks in the hydraulic pipe joints and pipes. If there are leaks, stop operation immediately and recheck and repair.
Replacing the excavator arm hydraulic hose requires care and adherence to the operator’s manual and safety procedures. If you are unfamiliar with this operation or lack relevant experience, it is recommended to have a professional excavator repairer or technician perform the replacement and repair to ensure safe and proper completion.

What are the steps for replacing the oil line on an excavator

Release hydraulic system pressure:

Before replacing the hydraulic oil pipe, the hydraulic pressure in that hydraulic circuit must be released, and the following are the steps to release the pressure:

1. Park the machine on a level ground.

2. Fully retract the bucket cylinder linkage. Adjust the bucket position so that the bucket is parallel to the ground. Lower the movable arm until the bucket falls horizontally on the ground.

3. Shut down the engine

4. Turn the engine start switch to the ON position, but do not start the engine.

5. Push the left console down to the unlock position.

6. When the excavator pilot accumulator is in good working order, move the operating handle or pedal of only the hydraulic circuit requiring service to the full range position. This will release the high pressure in that single hydraulic circuit only.

7. After releasing hydraulic circuit pressure, pull the left side console to the locked position.

8. Turn the engine start switch to the OFF position.

9. Slowly loosen the filler plug on the hydraulic tank to relieve pressure. The filler plug should remain loose for at least 45 seconds. This will relieve any pressure that may be in the return hydraulic circuit.

10. Tighten the filler plug on the hydraulic tank manually, and tighten this bolt with a 30 sleeve when you have finished replacing the line.

11. The pressure in the hydraulic circuit is now relieved and the lines and components can be disconnected or disassembled.

Disassembly of hydraulic lines:

1.if there is an oil drain fitting installed on the hydraulic line, you can connect a hose and then loosen the oil drain fitting, the hydraulic oil in the line will flow through the hose to the container for storing waste oil.

2.Dismantle the fixing bolts of the oil pipe clamp, first loosen one bolt on the outside a little bit, then loosen another bolt on its diagonal, and loosen the four bolts in diagonal order until the oil pipe is loosened.

3.Unscrew one bolt in the middle of the fixing clamp, and disassemble one piece of fixing clamp and oil pipe connector.

4.After removing the hydraulic oil pipe, make sure the part number of the new oil pipe is the same as the part number on the oil pipe of the original machine, then you can install the hydraulic oil pipe, if you have any questions, please contact the relevant CAT professional.

Install the hydraulic oil pipe:

1. Make sure the seal of the oil pipe fitting is installed in place.

2.Install the oil pipe fitting and fixing clamps, press the two pieces of fixing clamps firmly to ensure the oil pipe bends naturally, and then tighten the fixing bolts in diagonal order.

Add hydraulic oil and exhaust the hydraulic pump:

1.Check the hydraulic oil level, if there is insufficient oil level, it must be added to the normal oil level before using the machine.

2.If there is more hydraulic oil leakage due to the damage of hydraulic oil pipe, the hydraulic pump must be exhausting after adding hydraulic oil. Start the machine and lift the big arm and small arm to the highest point.

3.Loosen the plug or pump housing drain pipe at the top of the hydraulic pump housing. Turn the engine start switch to the on position, but do not start the engine.

4.Push the left console down to the unlock position. Do the big arm descending action, when the big arm will be descending to the ground, start the machine again to raise the big arm and small arm to the highest point.

5.Cycle this step several times to complete the hydraulic pump exhaust.

Which hydraulic hose to choose for excavators

Which hydraulic hose to choose for excavators Excavators are a kind of mechanical products that are very familiar to excavator operators. Its required technical parameters include: hose diameter, length, inner diameter, material, connection material and so on. In order to ensure that the excavator can operate stably, the hose must have sufficient strength and pressure resistance and other characteristics. Hydraulic hose (hose) is made of rubber or polyvinyl chloride (PVC) material, according to different thickness and diameter to choose different materials to meet the excavator in different working conditions can be used for how long. The hoses can be divided into PVC hoses and polyvinyl chloride hoses. The hose has the adaptive ability and other characteristics and become the most commonly used materials by the excavator manufacturers, its performance is more excellent and very popular with the majority of customers. The following is a brief introduction to the different brands used in the hydraulic soft connection technical parameters (can be designed and produced by the manufacturer): excavators choose to use which hydraulic work piping system for the most applications for the flexible rubber soft joints.

1, with good temperature resistance and impact resistance and other characteristics
And its installation form is also very much, and can be installed in each part of the excavator. For example, the excavator’s main engine and cab, air distribution room and so on. Rubber flexible joints are mainly used in the expansion pipe joints, because it facilitates the communication between the internal pipelines of the excavator, reducing the fatigue intensity of the staff in the construction. And the working temperature range is also very large (65-180 ℃). So that many brands pay great attention to it. Usually we are made of rubber, which has good temperature resistance and impact resistance and other characteristics. Can work at high temperatures, for the general case can withstand more than 1000 ℃ temperature, abrasion resistance can reach more than 20000 times; so it can be said to be the most used material in the excavator, and the performance is very superior! Under normal circumstances are able to withstand 100 kg object impact and vibration it can be destroyed and will not be affected by the role, so it is a very safe material; in different working conditions under the most use, it can be connected to the concrete or metal structure and other pipelines and axial displacement and compressive stress; and for the noise also has a very good role in isolation which can also be installed in the machine to play a very good effect, and better play a protective role. This can also be installed on the machine to play a very good effect, better protection and buffer function. Can meet the excavator in the work of any problem will not affect the normal operation of other machines so that flexible rubber joints is also a very popular material; and it also has a seismic, noise and other performance characteristics, long service life, thus reducing the failure rate of the excavator and make the working environment more comfortable and safe, the service life has been extended. The scope of use is very wide and favoured by users! It is also because of these features to make flexible rubber coupling in the excavator industry has a very high degree of application and widespread, but we have to pay attention to some matters when it is used: in the hydraulic pipeline are generally used in two different materials, and connect the form of different flexible hoses and fittings belonging to the hose couplings. Which can be based on the user’s actual needs to design the installation rather than in accordance with certain provisions and ways to determine its strength, hardness and so on! Because each manufacturer will be based on the user’s specific needs to produce a better and more suitable for their use and longer life Oh ~ Here we come to a detailed introduction to the rigid rubber hose connector and pipeline connection should pay attention to what problems: after installation

2、Effectively avoid vibration of excavator in long time operation
In the process of using, need to pay attention to some matters: first of all, according to the specific working conditions of the excavator to choose the appropriate hose. The installation height of the hydraulic hose should not exceed 5 cm. In addition, when installing the hose, be sure to weld the hose construction, do not use welding tools, so as not to damage the hose. Before use, be sure to check whether the hose has rupture or deformation and other conditions. Because this time if there is a break in the soft joint will affect the normal operation of the excavator. The second thing is to check whether the working pressure of the hydraulic system is too high. Too high or too low pressure will cause considerable damage to the excavator. Therefore, you should choose a reliable hose manufacturer for manufacturing. It is also necessary to check whether there is any damage, and if there is any damage, it should be replaced and repaired in time.

3, flexible rubber hose coupling and excavator frame connection is convenient for maintenance and not easy to deform.


How to correctly select excavator hydraulic hoses

1, soft connection material: different brands have different quality requirements. General PVC material is the best choice, with good impact and abrasion resistance; high temperature, corrosion has a certain resistance; price is also relatively moderate (according to different models).

2, flexibility: soft connection material with supple characteristics, good wear resistance, long service life; softness, can be directly in contact with the body; and will not rupture; better elasticity, good elasticity and abrasion resistance, and can be designed according to the need for a variety of performance; better sealing, not easy to leak, good oil resistance. Its shortcomings are also obvious, there is a little bad is easy to absorb water, especially in the hot season easy to aging, cracking and other phenomena; rubber flexible joints are mainly for the excavator to do joints to protect the role; and for the waterproof requirements of the user will affect the service life, so pay attention to the process of use to avoid the damage it will produce some losses.

3, pressure resistance: its elasticity can withstand the working pressure (generally working pressure) up to 5 times the rated pressure; can withstand the working temperature -40 ℃ ~ 70 ℃ under the working temperature, and allows the working temperature of 0 ℃ ~ 100 ℃; can withstand the impact and vibration strength (normal operation) of 3 MPa ~ 7 MPa between; modulus of elasticity of 480 MPa or so. Therefore, it can show its good pressure resistance performance under different working conditions. It will not react with mechanical oil or other oil substances in contact with the surrounding impact is very small, in the work can not be lubricated. If it is oil, it will release a small amount of gas oxidation and make the hose deformation, bending and deformation phenomenon or aging. In addition, the hose also need to have a certain buffer and waterproof performance, in order to avoid damage due to contact and loss. 4 rubber joints were composed of multiple connectors (designed by the manufacturer); rubber joints and excavator frame connection can reduce unnecessary loss; and softness can reduce the damage caused by the machine: for the excavator, the rubber soft joints also has good elasticity and shock absorption performance. Flexibility can reach

4, at the same time with good corrosion resistance and cushioning, when the excavator bucket rotates at a large angle when the hose will not have obvious wear and tear.
The high elasticity of the rubber hose itself is also a key factor to ensure the operation of the excavator. Because it can be adapted to the bucket’s large-scale movement without friction because of the soft rubber cushion and lead to increased wear and tear. This also leads to a new type of equipment widely used in the domestic market – excavators. Hydraulic flexible joints used in a wide range of industries, and in many industries can see the wide application of hydraulic flexible joints. Nowadays, many excavators choose to use this kind of connector to do to waterproof, dustproof and anti-vibration role. If there is water leakage in the equipment will lead to the machine can not continue to work and cause accidents. Especially when the working environment is poor, it will lead to excavators appear to stop, flameout, and even can not work and other failures, in the mechanical service life has a very big impact, then in the replacement of hydraulic flexible joints must pay attention to try to pick some brand quality products, because in the choice of hydraulic flexible joints, many users in the purchase of the time to ignore this point. Lead to the selection of poor quality products for fault repair at the same time also brought great damage to the excavator users. How to choose? Here is a detailed description of how to do it?

5, its joints can withstand high pressure (hydraulic system working pressure), can absorb vibration and reduce noise.
If not compensated, the hose will be limited in installation and have an impact on its life. However, these couplings are durable and do not leak. For high strength and long service life systems can be completed in a short period of time. Flexible rubber soft joints are connected together by rubber parts and metal elements. With a large contact surface, can withstand high pressure and corrosion resistance characteristics, at the same time has a certain degree of elastic deformation capacity and good flexibility and other characteristics. In withstand high pressure characteristics will not occur when the displacement of elastic deformation, reduce equipment operating resistance and noise will not cause vibration. Can be used for bending, axial displacement and other deformation and expansion, rotation and fixed position changes and other actions. At the same time can also play a role in damping the role of elastic components and filler materials, lining, elastic components, rubber and so on. Such as: can be used to compensate for the mutual rigidity of the connection between the moving equipment and connecting parts, such as: springs, shock absorbers, bearings, etc.; also used for pipeline connections, such as: connectors. If you need to apply different specifications or thicknesses of rubber joints on excavators to improve their life and reduce the working intensity of excavator operation.
