Braid vs. Spiral hose
Hydraulic hose can be referred to by construction style, of which there are two main types: braided and spiral. The majority of "low-pressure hoses" have a textile braided construction. They're commonly used to transmit petro-based fluids, diesel fuel, hot lubricating oil, air, ethylene glycol anti-freeze and water.

"Medium-pressure hoses" typically feature one and two-wire braided construction. These hoses are frequently found on construction equipment, heavy-duty trucks and fleet vehicle applications. In general, braided hose is selected for its flexibility.

At one time in the industry, two-wire braided hoses was not commonly used in many applications. But the advent of larger, off-road specialty equipment drove the creation of spiral hose, which is very well suited for applications where extremely high impulse pressure is encountered.

Today hydrostatic drives using four and six-wire spiral hoses can be found on everything from lawn tractors to earth movers. Because today's world demands faster, more powerful equipment requiring increased working pressures.
