Crimpers & Crimping

Hydraulic hose crimpers (also known as swagers or swaging presses) are used to permanently assemble crimp couplings onto a hydraulic hose. Hydraulic operated crimping machines are generally quite simple in both design and construction. The great majority of crimp heads are single acting hydraulic cylinders which open and close mechanical dies through various sliding faces. These cylinders move in two directions, both forwards and backwards, but are usually only powered in the forward direction. However, today crimpers have become an extremely well-engineered piece of equipment, which is critical to the safety of hydraulic hose and coupling assembly. RYCO have a full range of crimpers including mobile, workshop and production series. All of which are efficient swaging machines, equally suitable for repair shop applications and high-volume production of hose assemblies. Several of RYCO series crimpers are designed to handle large jobs with speed and efficiency. These full-scale production units offer: High speed for increased productivity Large die openings to allow small and large hose assemblies to pass through easily A wide range of available die sets High strength A number of ...

HAVE – Hose Assembly Visual Evaluation

Did you know hydraulic hose assemblies have a service life? This service life is dependent upon many factors that cannot be determined upon visual inspection alone. HAVE (Hose Assembly Visual Evaluation) is a methodology of determining visual external defects, wear and tear or abuse. With HAVE it’s as easy as 1-2-3! Free from obvious external defects and/or abnormalities. Non-urgent external deterioration and/or abnormalities that require the hose assembly to be scheduled for replacement at the next service. Urgent external deterioration. Possible safety issue. Replace immediately. RYCO now have an asset management system – QRAM which can assist you to complete the HAVE methodology. From just a touch of a button, QRAM gives operators and hose assemblers instant access to essential hose assembly information. Ensuring a reduction in high hidden costs and productivity loses. Whilst HAVE does not provision or determine the portion of the hose assembly life that has been consumed, QRAM can and does record the service life hours of each asset. QRAM also provides grouping of assets, either with a machine, a circuit or kit. Machines, circuits or ...

System Cleanliness – Ratings & Filtration

In order to monitor and quantify the cleanliness of the fluid in an hydraulic system, standard rating systems have been developed over the years. These cleanliness ratings also allow us to measure the effectiveness of any filtration systems put in place to maintain the cleanliness of an hydraulic system. Cleanliness Rating Systems The cleanliness of a fluid can be measuring using a number of different standard classification systems, as outlined below. ISO 4406 ISO 4406 describes a method by which to count and record particle sizes. An average is taken by counting three size ranges. Particles greater than 4 microns. Particles greater than 6 microns. Particles greater than 14 microns. Because the number of particles within a system may be very high, the actual number is not used. Instead, a number is used to represent the value. This "class" number is based on the following table. The table below is the ISO 4406 codes. There has been two major editions of this standard, 1987 and 1999. 1999 is the current edition, and it should be used when possible. ISO 4406: ...

System Cleanliness – Contamination & Analysis

The performance of hydraulic systems can be impacted by the presence of contaminants in the hydraulic fluid. But how does contamination arise, and how can we monitor and quantify it so that we can effectively manage it and minimise any potential damage to an hydraulic system? An overview of contamination Definition in fluid power Any material, foreign to a system's fluid that has the potential to damage components within that system. Contaminants can be solids, liquids or gasses. What is contamination? There are 7 different classes of contamination: Abrasion - Hard particles causing wear Fatigue - A repeated stressing on a surface Erosion - Particles striking at high velocity Corrosion - Chemical degradation Adhesion - Particles sticking to a surface Cavitation - A vacuum being induced on a fluid Aeration - Gas bubbles within a fluid What causes contamination? There are 3 main causes of contamination: Manufacturing Contaminants can be built-in to a system during manufacture. Hoses, tubes and other components are dirty when fitted Ingress Contaminants may ingress into a system. They may gain entry through seals or tank ...
