How to Replace Hydraulic Hose Fittings


Hydraulic systems are very important in industrial production, as they can not only improve production efficiency, but also reduce labor input and reduce the incidence of safety accidents. Hydraulic hose fittings are important components in hydraulic systems that connect hydraulic hoses and hydraulic components. It has the advantages of good sealing, high reliability, and easy installation, but after long-term use, the adapter may be damaged or worn, and a new adapter needs to be replaced. Below, we will provide a detailed explanation of how to replace hydraulic hose fittings.
How to Replace Hydraulic Hose Fittings 1

Step 1: Prepare tools and materials

Before replacing the hydraulic hose fittings, the entire hydraulic system must be shut down. To ensure safety, it is necessary to first place the hydraulic system in a safe position to avoid accidental opening of the system during replacement, which may cause personal injury.

Secondly, when replacing hydraulic hose fittings, various tools and materials need to be prepared, including hydraulic hose fittings, screw wrenches, torque wrenches, suppressors, hydraulic oil, fabric, plugs, pipe clamps, etc. Before starting the replacement, it is necessary to confirm whether the hydraulic hose fittings model used is correct, and check the integrity and preparation of tools and materials.

Step 2: Cut off the hydraulic hose

Generally speaking, replacing the hydraulic hose fittings requires cutting off the hose and removing the original hydraulic hose fittings. When cutting hoses, it is necessary to use a saw or other cutting tool to ensure that the cut is neat and perpendicular to the outer layer of the hose. In order to avoid oil leakage, sufficient preparation work should be done, such as preparing sufficient protective measures and preparing to use anti leakage liquid and anti leakage cotton. After cutting, both ends of the hose need to be surface treated.

Step 3: Install a new connector

When installing a new hydraulic hose fittings, first check the accuracy and surface condition of the fitting connection hole to ensure that the accuracy and surface quality meet the standard requirements. Secondly, clean the installation part of the fittings, remove the old sealing gasket, and prepare a new sealing gasket. In order to ensure that the new connector can work longer after installation, it is also necessary to check the sealing and corrosion resistance of the new adapter. Then, apply lubricant to the connecting hole and insert the connector into the cut of the hose. Use a press to press the fitting and hose together until the hose is completely sealed with the adapter. Finally, use a torque wrench to tighten the adapter thread to the specified torque.

Step 4: Check the connector connections

The hose fitting is a highly technical task that requires us to carefully inspect every detail. After installing the new hydraulic hose fittings, it is necessary to carefully inspect the connection. Firstly, confirm that the hydraulic hose has been fully inserted into the connection hole of the connector and that the connection is in a perfect state without any leakage or looseness. Secondly, check for any damage or wear on the threads and surfaces of certain connection holes to ensure that there is no mismatch between the hose fittings and other connections. 

Step 5: Restore the system

After installing the new hydraulic hose fittings, the system needs to be restored to normal operation. Firstly, it is necessary to clean the hydraulic system to remove any residues and impurities that may exist. Secondly, inject hydraulic oil into the container and confirm that the fittings and hoses at the connections are in a relaxed state. Finally, start the system and check its working status to ensure that it is running properly.

Step 6: Check

After installation, it is necessary to check for any oil leakage issues. Open the control valve of the hydraulic system, start running, and observe the working status of the new adapter. Check its efficacy and meet safety requirements.


Safe installation of hydraulic hose fittings can improve the service life of the equipment. The hydraulic system is one of the core components of mechanical equipment, which not only needs to maintain normal working conditions, but also requires frequent maintenance and repair. If the hose is installed improperly, it is easy to fail due to friction, wear, corrosion and other reasons, shorten the service life of the equipment, and increase maintenance and replacement costs. By using high-quality hose materials to ensure safe installation, the service life of the equipment can be extended and maintenance efficiency can be improved.

When replacing hydraulic hose fittings, we need to strictly follow the operating requirements to ensure safety and smoothness. At the same time, we also need to pay attention to material selection, the use of lubricants and cleaning agents, as well as work meticulously, patiently, and pay attention to safety. Only when sufficient attention is paid to these aspects can we better complete the work of replacing hydraulic hose fittings.
