Our hose shop at our headquarters in Northborough, Mass. is set up for high production runs and for custom hose assemblies that conform to unique customer requirements, including those who require testing validation.
Supply Chain Solutions for OEMs
To save time, inventory and handling costs, customers rely on us for custom hose assemblies packaged and delivered just in time to meet critical assembly and fabrication time schedules on the factory floor. Savings are earned through improved component selection, reduced assembly time and reduced production errors.
Hose Assembly Quality Assurance & Testing
Hose Cleaning and Sealing
We use a fast, less invasive way to clean contaminated hydraulic lines by shooting a projectile through the hose assembly (up to 4-½” ID), which removes internal contaminants, dirt, and oil. We finish it off by sealing the hose end with a heat-shrink capsule.
Hose Pressure Testing
Our typical pressure test subjects finished hose assemblies to 1.5x the rated working pressure to ensure both quality and safety. With testing capabilities up to 10,000 psi, we pressure test hose intended to convey a variety of media including hydraulic fluid, water, and air.
End Retention Testing
We can ensure that the crimp on a hose assembly is secure by putting it to a stress test, or in this case a “pull test.” Breathable air hose (among others) can be subjected to an end retention test at our facility. Each hose assembly is tested and certified before it ships, so you can assure the end user that the hose will not fail out in the field.
Hose Assemblies for MROs
The Hope Group owns and operates Parker Store branch locations throughout New England. Certified technicians provide immediate replacement of hydraulic hose assemblies to satisfy your equipment maintenance needs.
