Keep your hydraulics out of the red zone.
Hydraulic hose lines are highly stressed items of work equipment. They must be regularly inspected and replaced at the right time to avoid risks to people and machinery. Professional hose management provides everything necessary to ensure these inspections take place in good time within the legally prescribed timeframe and are recorded
Reliably fulfil all legal requirements
Plan inspections efficiently and perform them professionally
The unique marking, digital capture, efficient management and legally compliant documentation of all hose lines in use mean all the data are available and all it takes is a few mouse clicks. This information allows servicing to be efficiently planned, performed at the right time and recorded. HANSA‑FLEX supports you in planning your processes and in their implementation as part of ordinary everyday activities – from providing an individual service measure right up to the all-round, carefree package.
Manufacturing, coding and digital profile
We preassemble the hose line specifically for your application and give it the unmistakable X-CODE hose code. The X-CODE forms the basis for hose management and the creation of digital profiles containing all the relevant information. Existing hose lines without an X-CODE can be coded subsequently using follow-up coding by our Industrial Service so that they can be included in the hose management system.
Installation and digital assignment to machines
HANSA‑FLEX Industrial Service can perform the professional installation of your hose lines for you. The digital profile of each hose line is assigned in the X-CODE Manager hose management software directly to the relevant machine or component. You can depict all your machines and equipment in X-CODE Manager and structure the information according to your own criteria, so that you obtain the best overview of all hydraulic hose lines related to your locations, machines and components.
Risk analysis and classification
Unfortunately, we cannot perform your risk assessment for you but we can considerably assist you in preparing one. A risk analysis serves as the basis for the risk assessment of every hose line by the machine operator. The risk assessment determines the classification, the appropriate servicing plan and the time frames for the legally prescribed visual inspections.
Visual inspection and legally compliant documentat
Legally prescribed visual inspections must be performed on every hose line by an officially authorised person for inspection and documented in compliance with the law. An inspection that has not been properly documented is deemed not to have taken place. We can perform all the inspections and documentation for you. One of the forms of documentation is a digital inspection record.
You reduce accidents and ensure safety at work for equipment users.
Improved legal compliance
You observe servicing intervals and record inspections in compliance with the law.
You avoid unplanned machine downtime and reduce your costs by avoiding component wear.
You have access to all the information about your hose lines, machines and servicing dates at all times.

We have also covered the extra portion service (Pro).
European and national legal requirements
A host of European and national legislation governs the safe and legally compliant handling of hose lines. For example, the German Industrial Safety Act (BetrSichV) obliges employers to perform risk assessments for their work equipment, perform regular inspections and record the results.
Procedural regulations for employers
National health and safety at work regulations and technical information, rules and standards make clear these duties and formulate practical procedural regulations for employers. These include proper use, systematic inspection and the planned replacement of hose lines.
Inspection in accordance with BetrSichV and DGUV R
Only officially “authorised persons for inspection” may perform inspections of hose lines (§14 BetrSichV). The type and scope of inspections are defined by the risk assessment, while additional information can be found in DGUV Rule 113-020. By recording the inspection and its results, employers comply with the legal requirement to document the inspection (§6 ArbSchG (German Occupational Health and Safety Act) and §14 BetrSichV).
Use the extensively tried-and-tested component coding with X-CODE to uniquely identify each hose line.
Use X-CODE Manager to obtain the best overview of your hose lines, machines and servicing dates.
