Hydraulic tubing is a precision piping product, made of steel and manufactured for hydraulic systems. It comes in a choice of sizes, and the size you need depends on the pressure range of the commodity (liquid or gas) moving through the pipe.
How does hydraulic tubing work?
The tubing is connected together by different types of flanges, welding cones/nipples, flare connection and cut-rings. The minimum operating temperature of the substance moved through the cylinder is -40 degrees Celsius and the maximum temperature should not exceed 130 degrees Celsius.
All hydraulic tubing products are cleaned, oiled and plugged on the inside prior to distribution.
What is hydraulic tubing used for?
Hydraulic tubes act as a transport mechanism for fluids, gases and liquids at various temperature levels. This tubing is rigid and designed to be fixed permanently, but, if you need more flexibility or mobility, hosing products are a good alternative.
Types of hydraulic tubing
These tubes are hollow on the inside and have zinc or black phosphate plating on the outside. Zinc provides high corrosion resistance, while phosphate allows for cold bending options, reducing the number of welds needed and increasing durability.
