Designing a robust, durable and efficient hydraulic hose system for heavy equipment or demanding industrial environments is a challenge. Simply put, there are just too many variables and unknowns at play.
The traditional trial-and-error process to test a hydraulic system before deploying it in the field is both a time-
and cost-consuming endeavour.
HydraSpecma SimSystems will get your hose routing optimised from day one.
Together we discuss the hydraulic hose system and set objectives, scope and parameters
for the project.
You provide design specifications, models and choice of components in
the hydraulic hose system.
We measure the mechanical characteristics of your components in our test lab.
Using your component characteristics and specifications we simulate your system.
We provide you with a report and recommendations for optimisation.
Any OEMs using hydraulic/fluid/air conveyance products will benefit from our comprehensive hydraulic hose simulating system. Especially OEMs that have:
HydraSpecma Test Centre; where our experienced engineers test component characteristics through
our advanced testing equipment, mathematical calculations and analysis. The testing equipment is designed
and created for the soul purpose to measure bending stiffness and torsional stiffness in flexible segments.
That means SimSystems can offer you exclusive know-how information about your own hose system
which you did not know before.
Through testing we expand and increase our knowledge of hose segment behaviour.
For example, the characteristic difference between pressurised and non-pressurised hose segment,
and what type of forces emerges in motion trajectories.
HydraSpecma Test Centre offers a wide range of testing:
Through close co-operation with external laboratories we can also offer advanced testing e.g. cold testing.
Having this knowledge in-house enables us to evaluate and develop components and deliver to our customers
SimSystems; where experienced simulation engineers use component, characteristics measured by our test centre, to perform accurate simulations of the hydraulic hose systems.
This simulation will evaluate if current/proposed installation is shortening lifespan of the hose system.
After a simulation there is a lot of important information to act upon e.g. how much space
the hose needs during motion, what’s the best angular relationship between two angled couplings and what’s the optimal hose length.
All this information is summarised into a technical report containing graphs, illustrations
and recommendation for possible optimisations to be done. We give further technical guidance
to guarantee a scenario where our customer maximizes their advantage with the information gathered.
The first simulation concludes that changes are necessary to maximize hose system life length. We work together on a possible solution and test out different ideas that you want to test.
When we find the best solution for the hose routing, we simulate and optimize it fully with hoses, couplings, pressure and generate a final technical report.
These advantages will guide and assist you, in ensuring that your application performs at its best,
with maximum hose system life length.
We at HydraSpecma SimSystems have listened and attended to our customers’ needs.
Our collaborative way of working leaves our customers with enhanced knowledge about their own hose system.
