Posted by Don-Wi on January 11, 2013 at 20:00:21 from (

Yesterday or the day before at work, our "Assembly Manager" and maintnance guy was working on a press with some hydraulic guys and they showed him some pictures of what happens with high pressure oil injection. Now all of a sudden he's got a whole new respect for oil under pressure.

This coming from a guy who I saw stick his finger right over a seeping hydraulic leak on my machining center at work (coming through a crack on one end of a cylinder that changes gears in the head) a couple months ago and preaches about safety. He also has had his hand in the companies safety policies....

He was gonna have the pictures emailed to him and then show a bunch of us guys around the shop just to show us what they do at the hospital. I just kinda shake my head because it's nothing new to me, and I always try to be very careful around pressurized hoses and leaks.... I saw similar pictures when I was 12 in the tractor safety class through the county extension office. That's 16 years ago....

Bottom line is, it aint pretty and nothing you wanna go through- so think before you grab a hose. I know we all have that one peice around the farm where the hoses are in poor shape and will probably stay in place until they burst- it might be a good idea to fix them before they leak to avoid both the cost and mess of a hydraulic leak when it does rupture, and the risk of a high pressure stream of oil.
