Importance of Compression Testing: Metallic & Semi-Metallic Gaskets

There are various different ways to determine the functionality of a gasket. However, compression testing is one of the most common ways to see how heavy a load a gasket can take. Therefore, we have put together a few reasons for the importance of compression testing prior to application.

What is a Hydraulic Hose?


A hydraulic hose is a high-pressure, synthetic rubber, thermoplastic or Teflon reinforced hose that carries fluid to transmit force within hydraulic machinery. Hydraulic machinery started being used in the early 1940s when engineers discovered that hydraulic systems were more compact, lighter in weight and self-lubricating. Development of hydraulic machinery for military applications sparked after World War II. The development of flexible hydraulic hoses further opened the way for development of a a wide range of new, high-powered machines based on hydraulic technology.
