Why You Cannot Use Camlock Fittings for Steam Applications
While camlock fittings make for quick and easy connections for low-pressure fluid transfer, these types of connections are dangerous for both operators and machines when used in steam applications. As a result, camlock fittings should never be used for steam applications. Liquid dynamics and the ability to vary boiling points by increasing temperature and pressure within [...] Continue reading »

How to Prevent Hydraulic Hose Leaks

How to Prevent Hydraulic Hose Leaks

When working with hydraulics there is always a risk of hose leakage. This issue generates direct costs such as the oil lost to hose leaks, but also indirect safety risk costs, such as slip hazards, failed fittings under pressure and injection injuries. Leaking fittings can also affect machine performance, especially in clamping and load holding applications. In order to prevent hose leakage, there are four key factors that must be performed correctly.
