SKF has introduced the SKF Hose connection control (HCC) for monitoring lubrication lines on construction machines. Designed to check for ruptures in lubricant hoses, this unit alerts the machine operator immediately if there is a fault in the main line from the pump or in the feed lines to the lubrication point.

Economically priced and easy to operate, the SKF Hose connection control can help to prevent costly bearing damage and unplanned downtime. In addition, the risk of accidents and environmental pollution from leaking lubricant can be reduced significantly. Requiring either 12 or 24 V DC, the HCC unit can monitor from 10 to 20 hoses, depending on voltage. It is simple to retrofit into existing lubrication systems and is expandable at any time.

Operation of the SKF Hose connection control is not affected by line lengths, ambient temperature, pressure differential or pressure losses. Utilizing non-conductive lubricants or hydraulic fluids, the monitoring system has an operating pressure up to 300 bar (4 351 psi) and can be used in temperatures ranging from -40 to +70 °C (-40 to 158 °F).

The SKF Hose connection control includes the analyzer unit, a connector that acts as an electric isolator between the lubrication line and the lubrication metering device, and a connection cable to the analyzer. Lubricant hoses must conduct electricity.
