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.
