TIPCO supplies the parts and equipment you need to keep your operation running smoothly. Known as the standard for excellence among engineers, OEMs, and end users who rely upon rubber hydraulic hoses, Eaton’s Aeroquip hoses exceed industry standards for pressure, temperature, and abrasion resistance, with options adapted to handle your toughest jobs. TIPCO is proud to carry these exceptionally engineered products, which are now easily identifiable with innovative laylines designed with intuitive graphics and pictograms which allow you to identify key performance characteristics. No matter what your industry, Eaton’s clean bold layline labelling system provides simplified, accurate and speedy part identification, and ensures assembly of the correct parts for all your applications.

Vital Data – Instantly

Eaton understands that applications vary in complexity, and their hoses are tailored to optimize performance, maximize uptime, and protect user safety. With Eaton’s easy to read laylines, the information you need to identify the right hose for the job is available at-a-glance. Each label includes the following identifiers and takes the guesswork out of assembly:

Simple Terminology

Eaton’s laylines clearly identify enhanced features like abrasion resistance and flexibility to make sure you get the right hose for your application. The laylines can also be used as a visual index when routing and tightening the assembly to ensure the hose is not twisted or kinked.

Agency Information

Agency specifications SAE, ISO, MSHA, DNV-GL, USCG designation, are clearly displayed on each hose so you instantly know the qualifications of the hose. The informative laylines also note that many of Eaton’s premium hydraulic hoses exceed SAE and EN specifications.

Easy to Read Icons

Eaton’s informative icons and pictograms instantly convey the performance characteristics of each hydraulic hose for quick identification.

SAE Bend Radius

Eaton’s laylines have the information you need to improve performance. The clearly labelled hoses indicate when the hoses exceed SAE bend radius requirements.

MatchMate Fitting System

The intuitive and simple to use MatchMate hose & fitting system, used for years in the Aeroquip line, is now standard across all of Eaton’s hose lines. Easy to read icons and pictographs identify the spiral and braided fittings. Dura-Kote plating technology protects from corrosion, and Dura-Seal technology eliminates hose assembly cool-down leakage, extending hose life and reducing down time.

Eaton has the right hose for every job and their ingenious laylines make them easily identifiable, improve performance, and reduce downtime. Contact the experts at TIPCO for more information about these innovative laylines and how they make your job easier at 410-356-0003 or Chat Below.

NOSHOK Pressure Gauge Measurement Solutions – Exceptional Quality, Reliability, and Value

NOSHOK Pressure Gauge Measurement Solutions

Accurate and easy to read pressure gauges are crucial components of processing systems and are vital to help prevent failure in everyday operations. As an authorized distributor, all TIPCO hose center locations stock NOSHOK pressure gauge measurement solutions, which are expertly constructed and carefully tested to ensure reliability, safety, and peace-of-mind.


NOSHOK’s vast product portfolio of pressure gauges accommodate a wide range of process requirements. NOSHOK’s industry-proven dial indicating gauges include dry and liquid filled, high and low pressure, process, and precision test gauges available with a variety of corrosion-resistant case type, lenses, connections, and scale options. NOSHOK also offers digital, differential, sanitary gauges and a wide range of accessories and options including panel mounting, flanges, MIPs, orifices, swivel adaptors, steam syphons and diaphragm seals.

NOSHOK Pressure Gauge

Accuracy and Performance

NOSHOK gauges are engineered to overcome the three process factors that can adversely affect the accuracy and performance of pressure gauges:

  • Temperature Influence:Temperature changes affect the stiffness of a Bourdon tube. For every 100 °F shift in temperature from which the gauge is calibrated, the user can experience up to a 2% additional error in reading. While ambient temperature is difficult to control, NOSHOK gauges address the influence of process temperature.
  • Vibration Influence:Equipment vibration can cause excess wear failure of working parts of a pressure gauge and can also cause difficulty in accurate reading of the gauge. One of the most common causes of pressure gauge failure is exposure to continuous vibration. Liquid filled gauges address not only pointer oscillation, but also serve to protect and lubricate the internal geared movement.
  • Pulsation Influence:Process pulsation can occur around the discharge of pumps as well as quick operating valves. NOSHOK pressure gauges are designed to mitigate against this pulsation.
