Choosing the right hoses and components for your high-pressure hose assemblies is based on a variety of factors, and temperature is one of the most important. As you select components for your high-pressure hose assemblies, you need to consider the temperature of the environment surrounding your machinery and the temperature of the fluid conveyed.
If you rely on high-pressure hose assemblies that use a rubber inner tube or a rubber cover, they may experience a drastic change in properties when exposed to either extreme cold or heat. During these periods of exposure, plan on rating your hoses at a lower operating pressure to prevent short and long-term damage.
Since temperature can have a significant effect on your high-pressure hose assemblies, you should regularly check your components for signs of deteriorating. If your hose assemblies show any signs of damage, immediately replace the components. If this occurs due to exposure to high heat, replace the components with ones that possess a higher temperature rating. While the same can be said about hoses exposed to colder temperatures, thermal exposure is more likely to have a negative effect on hose materials.
