The unique PIRTEK tagging system paved the way for proactive maintenance and was the first national identification system employed within the hydraulic hose industry. Color-coded tags are applied when PIRTEK hoses are assembled. The tag records the hose’s age, components used and the contact number of the originating PIRTEK Service & Supply Center.
The tagging system is an accurate method for measuring hose performance and cycle life. When a hose is installed, its productive life can often be assessed and scheduled for replacement before failure occurs.
Information obtained from PIRTEK’s unique tagging system can provide statistical information for lifecycle-based maintenance programs.
