A complete hose assembly is a long hose with an attached fitting at each end. Its function is to transfer media from one end to the other and protect the outside from any media or fluid being transported.
Hydraulic hose assemblies have fittings on both ends to connect the hoses with compatible equipment. Hydraulic Hoses can transfer fluids in hydraulic systems that are petroleum- or water-based. They are commonly used on industrial, mining and manufacturing equipment.
