I enjoy learning about new things. The more I learn the better I am able to understand how things work. So what have I been reading up on lately? Well I am reading about the various ways hydraulic hose can be put to use. I know that my car has a hydraulic breaking system and hydraulics is used in airplanes and trains. Hydraulic tools are even used, like in jackhammers. What do all of these things need? They all need a hydraulic hose to get the hydraulic fluid from one place to another. While reading about the hoses, I came across another term that is new to me and that is “thermo plastic.” Hoses made from Thermo plastics tend to be cleaner than regular rubber hoses, thus keeping you hydraulic fluid freer from contaminants.
