Braided vs. spiral hose
Hydraulic hose can be referred to by construction style, of which there are two main types: braided and spiral. The majority of “lowpressure hoses” have a textile braided construction. They’re commonly used to transmit petroleum-based fluids, diesel fuel, hot lubricating oil, air, ethylene glycol anti-freeze, and water. “Medium-pressure hoses” typically feature one- and two-wire braided construction.

High Pressure Hydraulic Hose
Hydraulic hose or high-pressure hydraulic hose, as it is usually called, is an integral part of a flexible hydraulic line that is used to transfer hydraulic and mineral oil, fuel, gas and emulsions under high pressure. High-pressure hydraulic hose can be found everywhere, where it’s impossible to install rigid pipes. It is more often installed in the bending spots, e.g. to transfer energy to lift an earth mover’s bucket. High-pressure hoses can transfer both energy and the product, such as drill fluid or slurry that’s used in the process of hole boring.
