Most heavy equipment and agriculture require cylinders, valve reels, and hydraulic pumps to manage their tasks. These are components that are usually put together using steel tubes and steel-reinforced rubber hoses.
Oil leaks are a very common problem from hoses and when this happens, it can request a hose replacement. The good thing about hydraulic pumps is that you can easily replace them, save the money you should use in hiring an expert to help you with replacing them. Some steps can help you manage the replacement process easier.
Step 1 – Identify the problematic hose. This leak usually indicates an explosion considering the hose handles high pressure. A wet trail can take you directly to the source of your problem. You can use paper or leak detection cardboard to help you find leaks safer than using your hands.
Step 2 – Assess components to be deleted. To replace a damaged hose, you must remove some components and avoid confusion when reinstalling, you should label them when you remove them. Among them, there will be clamps, guards, cylinders, and houses, among others.
Step 3 – Determine the load of the hydraulic component. Components served by the hose can explode if they are under pressure when releasing. Because it's important to release the pressure from the component or cylinder before you continue. Each attachment supported by a cylinder operated by a hose must also be chained or lowered to the ground so that it does not fall due to pressure.
Step 4 – Remove attachments and clamps. You will need the right tool for this, like a wrench. Apart from hydraulic cylinders, fittings that attach the hose to the system also need to be loosened and must be rotated on the threaded joint without turning other parts.
Step 5 – Pull the hose and clean it. Beware of spills when removing hoses and consider installing fittings on the machine so that debris does not come out of the system; You can tie a clean cloth around the right for protection.
Step 6 – Install the end of the new hose. A special lid or clean cloth can be used to keep dirt and dirt from entering the hose when installing it again. Removable temporary plugs immediately fitting installed.
Step 7 – Reinstall fittings and replace other components. Torque can help connect fitting properly, but make sure you don't end stripping or damage the seal. After labeling the components that are released, it should be easy for you to replace them in the right location. Make sure the snap or split ring is reinstalled.
Step 8 – Check engine and liquid levels. Bleeding may be needed for some hydraulic circuits before using the machine. Turn on the system and check for leaks. Clean previous leaks that contaminate the surface so you can easily see new leaks.
