Air hoses are widely used in air compressors. Good quality air hoses can help air compressors and air tools work more efficiently. On the other hand, a poor quality air hose can have adverse effects on the entire air delivery system. It may not be able to withstand the air pressure in the air. And not being able to move enough air to the right place. Therefore, we need to make the right decision when choosing the right air hose.
What aspects should you pay attention to when choosing a high-quality air hose? First of all, the appropriate material should be selected. There are many choices for this material in the production of air hoses, including PVC air hoses, hybrid air hoses (composites of rubber and PVC), PU and rubber, etc. Material selection, of course, requires consideration of application needs and budget.
Among these materials, rubber is the traditional material commonly used for air hoses. They perform best in terms of resistance to wear and tear. And able to work in all weather conditions, it will remain flexible. Words used to describe rubber air hoses include “heavy,” “durable,” and “strong.” Never have to worry about kinks or deterioration in your rubber hose, these are the features that come with a quality air hose.
If you have special needs for working pressure, you can also choose steel wire reinforced rubber air hoses, which are widely used in mines.
If an air hose is required, size and length also need to be considered. Size depends on the amount of air required.
