Challenges and advantages of preventive maintenance
Whether safety at work, system availability or cost savings, conservation of natural resources, energy efficiency or digitalisation: the requirements for maintenance today are as numerous as they are complex. System maintenance increasingly relies on proactive and forward-looking strategies to ensure as few malfunctions as possible in production processes. Systematically planning servicing and inspections as part of preventive maintenance can reduce the number of unplanned machine breakdowns and make an important contribution to overall success on the production floor.
Preventive maintenance of hydraulic and other components
The special characteristics of hydraulic components such as hose lines or pressure accumulators and the associated legally prescribed inspection and replacement intervals applying to them mean they are prime examples of equipment requiring professionally designed preventive maintenance plans.
Benefit from the tools and know-how of HANSA‑FLEX hydraulics specialists in the conception, implementation and the legally compliant, practical implementation of your individual maintenance strategy. Your machines will operate more reliably for longer and your team will have more time for dealing with unplanned events.
Operate systems and work equipment safely and in compliance with the law
Hydraulic hose lines have a limited service life and must be professionally inspected at regular intervals to ensure your machines and systems operate safely and in compliance with the law.
The inspections must take place in accordance with the legally prescribed risk assessment in each case and be properly documented. We support you from A to Z in fulfilling these obligations with 360° hose management. This leaves you in a better position to concentrate on your core business.

Inspection of pressure accumulators in hydraulic
Pressure or hydraulic accumulators are work equipment that can give rise to special risks. As pressurised containers, they are among the systems that need to be monitored in accordance with product safety legislation and are classified into one of four categories in accordance with the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED). We can perform the inspections required before hydraulic accumulators Category I are brought into use and the recurring inspections of hydraulic accumulators Categories I & II. An officially authorised person for pressure equipment with additional qualifications performs these inspections for you.
Inspection of industrial hose lines in accordance
We inspect all types of hose lines for chemicals, foodstuff, pharmaceuticals and other media. Inspections are carried out in our specialist centres for hose technology inspection or directly on site for you. For the mobile inspection service, an officially authorised person for inspections in accordance with TRBS 1203 in a fully equipped inspection vehicle performs all the prescribed inspections. Inspection certificates, identification label strips and inspection stickers can be produced on the vehicle and immediately applied.
