In the last piece, I showed you some tips to use a rubber air hose correctly. Then let me show you something else to make your air hose lasts for a longer time.
Operate the rubber air hose within the pressure range. Do not exceed the max working pressure to avoid overloading the hose. Because that could lead to failure or burst.
Release Pressure before Unload
Prior to unload the rubber air hose from the air source, release the pressure by turning off the air supply. Then bleed any residual pressure from the hose. This reduces the risk of sudden hose movement.
Avoid Over load
Do not overload the rubber air hose beyond its intended capacity. Be aware of the airflow demand of the tools you are using. In addition, ensure they are compatible with the hose’s capacity.
Proper Hose Rout
Rout the rubber air hose in a way that min the risk of accident and damage. Then keep the hose away from sharp edge, hot surface, or moving machine. Because they could cause cut, burn or other injuries.
When not in use, store the rubber air hose in a safe and organized manner. Never coil or store the hose under heavy objects or near sharp edges that could cause damage. Proper storage helps prevent kink, prolong the hose’s lifespan and reduce the risk of accidents.
With above methods, you can make your industrial air hose work well. Besides, the hose will be away from failure and other problem such as crack, leakage and burst. What’s more, it will has a long service life.
