How to Extend the Life of Hoses, Pipes, and Wires

When an application requires extra protection, hose wraps and sleeves are the solution for both pre- and post-assembly. Failure to protect an application can result in premature wear and lead to expensive repairs, collateral damage or injury to persons nearby. Avoid the headache caused from these accidents by learning how to protect and extend the life of hoses, pipes, and wires.

Pre-Assembly Hose Sleeves

Installing tubular sleeves on hoses and wires before beginning an assembly works great for pin hole and burst protection, operator protection, mobile equipment, heat applications, and engine bays. Tubular sleeves are tightly woven to maximize durability and prevent fraying. They also may help with bundling if the material is expandable. Python carries the necessary tubular sleeve products to handle any environment. View our tubular sleeve line here.

For pressurized hydraulic hoses, Python’s Diamondback PRO sleeve is the optimal choice. Burst protection tested to 12,000 PSI, and passing over 1.7 million abrasion cycles, Python’s Diamondback PRO is the best hydraulic hose solution in the market. See the full lineup of tubular sleeves.

Post-Assembly Hose Wraps

So you’ve installed your hydraulic hose assembly, completed some basement wiring, and/or purchased a mobile hydraulic machine only to realize that you need some abrasion & bundling protection afterward. The need for protection on an application isn’t always obvious right away but can be crucial for completing a project or protecting a valuable piece of equipment.
