Hydraulic Hose Fittings: Skived vs Non-Skived

Special attention must be given to hose assemblies. The two preparation options to choose from are skiving or non-skiving of the hose.

SKIVING Skiving a hydraulic hose is the process of using special equipment and tooling to shave a predetermined depth of the OD and ID of the hose. Some medium pressure hose fittings require only external skiving (or single skive) in order for the ferrule and hose fitting to mate correctly.

Two Piece vs. One Piece Hose Fittings

A hydraulic system’s design needs to focus on the required working pressure of the application. To do so, the working pressure of the components must coincide with the system requirements. The components for the system are then selected to ensure safe and acceptable service life.

There are a number of factors to consider when selecting the hose fitting, including the compatibility of the fitting to the hose, one or two piece design and the correct assembly.
