PTFE hose is a special type of hydraulic hose that has excellent characteristics such as high temperature resistance and corrosion resistance, and is widely used in high-temperature, high-pressure, and highly corrosive working environments. However, as the usage time increases, PTFE hoses may also experience aging, wear, and other issues, affecting their service life. To extend the service life of PTFE hoses, we can start from the following aspects. 1. Proper selection of PTFE hoses requires the use of different PTFE hoses for different working environments. When selecting PTFE hoses, it is necessary to choose durable and reliable PTFE hoses based on factors such as actual working environment, hydraulic system pressure, and temperature. Meanwhile, during use, it is necessary to strictly follow the instructions and requirements for the use of the hose. 2. Correct installation of PTFE hose The installation of PTFE hose is one of the Committed step. Correct installation can avoid problems such as twisting and deformation of the hose during use, thus extending the service life of the hose. During the installation process, attention should be paid to factors such as the bending radius, length, and connection method of the hose to ensure that it is in normal working condition. 3. Regular inspection and maintenance of PTFE hoses. Regular inspection and maintenance of PTFE hoses can timely detect aging and damage issues of the hoses, handle them in a timely manner, and avoid more serious problems during use. During the inspection process, the use status of the hose can be determined by observing whether there are cracks, deformations, and other issues on the surface of the hose, as well as whether there are dirt inside the hose. 4. Pay attention to the usage environment of the hose. PTFE hoses are suitable for some special working environments, including high temperature, high pressure, strong corrosiveness, etc. When using PTFE hoses, it is necessary to pay attention to the usage environment of the hoses, such as avoiding excessive heating of the hoses in high-temperature environments, and paying attention to the properties of hydraulic oil in corrosive environments. If the hose is left in an unsuitable working environment for a long time, it is prone to problems such as aging, embrittlement, and rupture. 5. Pay attention to the transportation and storage of hoses. During the transportation and storage process, it is necessary to protect the outer surface of the hose to avoid scratches, squeezing, etc. Hoses also need to be stored in a dry, clean, and oil-free environment to avoid being affected by factors such as moisture and pollution. 6. Regularly replace PTFE hoses. Although PTFE hoses have a long service life, prolonged use can still lead to hose aging and damage. Therefore, it is recommended to replace the hose in a timely manner when the service life of the hose reaches a certain age or when problems such as damage occur, to ensure the normal operation of the hydraulic system. In summary, PTFE hose is a high-performance hydraulic hose, and its service life is closely related to factors such as material, installation, and maintenance. Only by selecting, installing, and using PTFE hoses correctly, and regularly inspecting and maintaining them, can the service life of PTFE hoses be extended and the normal operation of the hydraulic system be ensured.
