When choosing the hydraulic hose, one of the deciding factors is the price. The price of hydraulic hoses is generally decided by raw materials such as rubber/wires steel material and manufacturing Techniques.
(1)What type and size of hydraulic hose do you need for your hydraulic equipment?
(2)What is the pressure requirement?
(3)Will you need fittings?
The two main factors that affect the cost of hydraulic hoses are raw materials and manufacturing Technique. Before understanding the cost of hydraulic hoses, we need to know the structure of hydraulic hoses.
Hydraulic hose is mainly composed of three parts:
Inner tube: mainly composed of synthetic rubber, the common ones are nitrile rubber, EPDM rubber, different rubber raw materials, the cost is different;
Reinforcement: Different types of hydraulic hoses are composed of different layers of steel wire reinforcement.
More layers of steel wire reinforcement cost higher. For example, two layers of braided (2SN) are more expensive than one layer of braided (1SN); six layers spiral hose is more expensive than four-layer spiral hose;
Outer tube: synthetic rubber, common is black neoprene.
Neoprene is a popular synthetic covering material that remains flexible over a wide temperature range while also handling abrasion well. Most rubber hoses perform fairly well in temperatures ranging from –40°C (–40°F) to 100°C (212°F)
1 wire braided hydraulic hose: SAE 100R1/EN 857 1SC
2-wire braided hydraulic hose: SAE 100R2/ EN 857 2SC
3-wire spiral hydraulic hose: EN 856 4SP/4SH
4-wire spiral hydraulic hose: EN856 R13/ EN856 R15
Besides the reinforcement layer, the cost of different sizes is also different, please feel free to contact us to inquire, we can give the detailed hydraulic hose cost according to your requirements.
Due to the different pressure requirements of the hydraulic hose, the production tech is different. During production the raw material cost, technology cost, labor cost, etc consumed in the manufacturing process will also be different.
According to the hydraulic hose manufacturing tech, mainly divided into two types in the hydraulics market, braided hydraulic hose and spiral hydraulic hose. Generally, spiral hydraulic hose is more expensive than braided hydraulic hose, while the same type of hydraulic hose, the more layers and the larger the size, the higher the cost.
Under the above understanding, you will find that raw materials and manufacturing techniques play a crucial role in the cost of hydraulic hoses. Therefore, when you consider the price of hydraulic hoses, you should consider these two factors prioritly that affect the cost. We cannot blindly pursue low-priced products, high prices may not high cost, but low price must in a low cost.
