Are you worried that your machines aren't working properly because there are issues at the connection points of the hoses? Do you think that fluids or air are being misdirected or leaking out? If so, then you want to have an inspection done on the machine, and you need to find ways to reinforce the tubing so you aren't down and losing production hours.
Tubes can get dried out and rot or they can get hot and melt if they aren't taken care of properly or if the machine isn't working as it should be. Do the following with the machines and the tubing.
Have the tubing inspected to see where there are damages, if there is any cracking, odd bending or tearing, and to see if there are damages where the pipes connect. If there are leaks and cracks where the pipes meet, it may be time to reinforce the piping with other durable parts. The tubing may even need to be replaced all together.
Polyethylene Coupler Reinforcement
Have polyethylene couplers added at the connection points of the pipes to prevent further leaks and problems. These high density mechanical fittings are going to help make sure you don't get any air or fluid leaks throughout the machines, and they are easy to put on and remove when needed. You may be able to get a discounted bulk price on the couplers.
Have the machine tuned up to make sure everything is working as it should be while you have the mechanic on your location looking at the hoses and adding the couplers. You want to be sure that you aren't wasting energy or running the risk of damaging parts and components because the machine needs to be tuned up or because it hasn't been fully inspected and maintained as it should be.
If you can tell that your machine isn't working properly, and you don't want to lose any money having to shut down the unit, have a mechanic check it out. Have them look at all the hoses and fittings and look at getting couplers to smooth the area where the tubing meets. There are a lot of things that can go wrong with machines over time in a dry working environment, but, if you take the time to have your machines inspected regularly, you can avoid costly damages that are hard to repair.
