The True Cost Of Using Counterfeit Bearings
Monday, July 16, 2018

With the rise of advanced technology in third world countries, it’s becoming easier to illegally replicate a reputable manufacturer’s product, making it nearly impossible to distinguish between the fake and genuine brand of bearing. Consumers are unwittingly being conned into buying inferior products and the results can be disastrous.  ..

All You Need To Know About Pneumatic Valves
Monday, July 09, 2018

Pneumatic valves control the pressure, flow rate, direction, and amount of air that moves through a pneumatic system. Countless industrial applications depend on pneumatic systems to control their power source, and while the medium in the system is a fluid (as in a hydraulic system), the way in which it is controlled and delivered is different. There are also several types of pneumatic valves that can be used to control the pressure and flow of fluid. The most common are pressure relief valves, flow control and directional control valves. ..

Signs That Your Hydraulic Hose Needs Replacing
Monday, June 25, 2018

As we’ve covered before, there is no simple way to determine how long your hydraulic hose is going to last – there are just too many variables that could influence its lifespan. The general rule is that hoses and fittings should be replaced every 1-2 years but that is highly dependent on the quality of the products and under what conditions they are being used. The shelf life of a rubber hose is around ten years (check the manufacturing date on the lay-line) but even that is negotiable when you take into account how the hose has been stored and what kind of environment it has been exposed to. ..
