Q:
What new technologies are influencing hydraulic hose design?
16 answers
Answers:
Certain critical applications demand high volumetric flow coupled with excellent flexibility in both directions of the hoses. Environmental concern is also coming into the picture while formulating rubber compounds to meet environment regulation. This is a big challenge for the Rubber technologist and hose designer to find a solution.

With Sub sea systems going deeper and deeper, higher pressures are required to meet the design of the systems, which are forcing the hose manufacturers to keep designing new hoses that can cope with the increased pressures that are required from them.

Q:
From your perspective, which companies are creating the most innovative hydraulic hose?
19 answers
Answers:
Parker Hannifin has the most extensive range of Hydraulic and Industrial hose. They also are the company that leads in Uutra high pressure hoses and usually have a hose that can meet the guidelines required.
~Marketing/Sales, Cannington, Australia
Few international majors are really putting thrust in creating innovative products. In India, PIX Transmissions Ltd is the leading manufacturer creating innovative products.
~Ghosh R.C., DGM-Business Development, Nagpur, India
Don't have a broad enough experience with different manufacturers to really answer this. Work primarily with Eaton/Aeroquip and Parker.
~Chad P., Engineer, Appleton, WI
No one. It is nearly impossible to acquire stainless steel BSPP fittings in the USA, without spending an exorbitant amount.
~Adam P, Research & Development, Chambersburg, PA
I didn't follow it enough the past year, but I tended to gravitate towards Parker.
