A new ISO Technical Specification has recently been published and is now available from the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA).
ISO/TS 17165-2:2013 (supersedes ISO/TR 17165-2:2006) Hydraulic fluid power – Hose assemblies – Part 2: Practices for hydraulic hose assemblies
The Technical Specification provides guidelines for selection, routing, fabrication, installation, replacement, maintenance and storage of hose and hose assemblies for hydraulic fluid power systems, which are manufactured from hoses conforming to ISO 1436, ISO 3862, ISO 3949, ISO 4079 and ISO 11237, and hose fittings conforming to ISO 12151-1 to ISO 12151-6. – Many of these practices also can be suitable for use with other types of hoses and systems.
- The document also contains an annex that lists examples of actual failure resulting from improper use of hydraulic hose and hose assemblies.
- ISO/TS 17165-2 helps users of hydraulic hose assemblies to ensure proper performance, correct installation and routing, and longer component life by providing globally-agreed practices.
