Hose

Condition Monitoring System reports imminent hydraulic hose failure.

Designed to continuously monitor health of hydraulic hose assemblies, LifeSense(TM) hose detects when hose is nearing end of its useful life rather than estimating or predicting when hose will fail. Alert is then sent to user so assembly can be replaced to prevent downtime. Single monitoring unit can handle input from multiple hose assemblies. Unlike maintenance programs that replace assemblies...
