Air Compressor Hoses NJ

On today’s blog, we at The Hose Shop would like to discuss air compression hoses in NJ, their uses and pricing. This type of hose is an accessory that sends the pressurized air flowing out of the compressor to attached application tools. Hose conveys the air flow and acts as a connection between the two systems. All are familiar with the air hoses used in garages to inflate tires with air delivered by a compressor. The major pricing determinants of these hoses are diameter, length and material.
Air Compressor Hoses NJ 
While air compressor generates high pressure air, some connection is necessary to deliver the air flow from compressor outlet to the application tool. Hose pipe connects the two systems or dispatches air flow to the action site by two adapters fixed at its two ends. The compressed air flow may be necessary for functioning a nail-gun, sander, drills, paint guns and many other pneumatic tools and appliances that do not work on electricity.

The compressor may be stationary and the application tool or site may be distant from it. Sometimes heavy portable compressors are carried by car to the job site which may be a construction area and the compressor may need to deliver air flow to various pneumatic appliances from the car. Air compressor hose comes into play in these cases.

For general purpose and household applications a 25 ft long and 1/4 inch to 3/8 inch diameter hose is sufficient. Apart from these two common measures, other diameter hoses are also available for industrial purposes. Good quality hoses should be flexible, durable and withstand high temperatures.
The connectors at the two ends may be turned by a lathe or molded in parts. Lathe shaped connectors are durable while molded ones tend to crack or leak fast. Hose pipe should be free from leak and protected from damage during use. Connecting good quality hose at the application tool side gives better air flow supply. Long hose pipes come coiled up in a reel which can retract the hose. A good quality reel provides protection to hose pipes and house them inside a metal casing.
Body material of the hose is very important. Generally Polyurethane (PUR or PU), a polymer of organic units linked by urethane or carbamate linkage are used to manufacture high pressure compressor hose. This compound is physically flexible, resilient, lightweight, and can withstand frictional wearing to some extent.

Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC) is another synthetic material composed of thermoplastic polymers which is used to make hose for special applications. They can withstand high pressure up to 145 PSI or more. Rubber is the most preferred material for hose pipes. They are abrasion resistant, withstand high temperature and pressure and highly flexible.

The key to choosing air compressor accessories and tools lies in knowing the capacity of your air compressor and the planned applications. Your accessories must be compatible to the air compressor and the compressor must have sufficient capacity to power the attached tools. This is one of the reasons you need to engage a professional to help you get quality and reliable tools and accessories and you will definitely get a great value for your money. If you have any questions you can always ask our friendly staff at The Hose Shop.

Hydraulic Hoses in NJ

When you use the road as often as you do, your vehicle is bound to encounter problems.  One of the issues often faced by motorists is emergency roadside instances that involve hydraulic hose repair. Today, we at The Hose Shop would like to discuss hydraulic hoses in NJ. Hydraulic hoses often age with regular use, whether they are used in normal service conditions or whether they are left in storage. Please note that hose failure does not point to poor product performance but rather a natural dilapidation of any mechanical part.  

A hydraulic hose is often an ignored element in a vehicle, but it is an essential one to remember. When a hose fails suddenly, the consequences can be dire for the motorist.  Some of the issues one has to deal with include increased cost of material and labor, out of the blue downtime, as well as damage to the hose. One cost-effective method that can ensure that your hose is operational is by checking the system regularly to determine whether or not it requires replacing.

The life span of hydraulic hoses
The life span of hydraulic hoses relies heavily on the quality of the hose, as well as the hydraulic fittings and your rate of usage. As a general rule of thumb, hoses require replacement every one to two years, based on the circumstances that the hoses are used.  The best method to keep track of your maintenance is by maintaining a log of all your replacements and instances of failure. Over an extended period of time, you should get a rough estimate of the life cycle of your hoses.

Signs of damage
As well as regular replacement, you also need to be vigilant regarding the signs that point towards worn out hydraulics. In almost all failures, the issue always has to do with kinking, crushing, pulling or abrasions. The stress that is applied to the hydraulic system may cause the system to fail even before the next scheduled replacement. Some of the forewarning signs that one may encounter include:
  • Crushed holes- crushed holes tend to lead to the buildup of pressure which can then result in the bursting of the hoses.
  • Oil leaks- leaks that occur around the hose may indicate that the entire system needs replacing.
  • Exposed wiring- exposed wires around the hose are often a sign that replacement needs to occur.
  • Cracked fittings- fittings that are broken need replacement. In such a case, it may also be safer to replace the hose just to ensure everything is in working order.
