Gates’ Fluid Power unit has launched hose monitoring, diagnostics and identification services designed to help OEMs, distributors and end users to maximise the productivity of their hose assemblies.

Companies that depend on fluid power equipment at construction sites, mining operations, wind farms, marine facilities and offshore platforms, for instance, can use Sentry IQ and Sentry ID, the complementary components of Sentry Services, to track the condition and performance of hose assemblies and prevent hose failure.

This helps to eliminate equipment downtime, which can cost anywhere from thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars per hour for critical end-user applications.

Sentry IQ monitors real-time diagnostic information about the operating condition and performance of hose assemblies, continuously measuring temperatures, pressures, impulse cycles and more to calculate remaining hose life and to identify hoses for replacement before failure occurs.

Sentry ID is a radio-frequency tagging system that allows field service personnel, mobile equipment operators and fleet managers to identify and track specific hose assemblies operating worldwide.

It facilitates quick location, repair and replacement, according to the company.
