Air Compressor Hoses in NJ

When you buy an air compressor, it mostly comes with a hose, few adapters and other necessary equipment. With some time, you might want to upgrade or replace the hose. While buying a new upgraded hose, you should consider all factors like the materials, features, size, and compatibility with the air compressor. Today at The Hose Shop, we want to discuss the various factors that come with choosing air compressor hoses in NJ.

Length and size
Length - You should be clear with what length will be suitable for your purpose. A really long hose will reach everywhere but at the same time it will be really heavy and bulky. Short and light hoses are suggested for smaller jobs. If you want you can keep a short hose and a long extension hose for occasional jobs.

Size - The capacity of a hose to deliver air depends upon its inner diameter and maximum pressure rating. Larger diameter hoses operating at higher pressure deliver more air. Remember that bigger hoses weigh more, which will affect the handling of your tool. Using a light hose will increase your efficiency.

High-quality air hoses have three layers: the inner tube, the reinforcement layer, and the outer cover. As a whole, the hose is primarily of one material. Before choosing a material you must know that each material performs differently under different circumstances.

The most common material that hoses are made from is rubber. Rubber hoses lie flat, won't kink at all, and are easy to coil. They remain flexible in freezing conditions but do not perform as well as polyurethane hoses in this environment. The one drawback of rubber hoses is its weight, rubber hoses are the heaviest. Weight does matter while working on certain tasks like roofing. So, if you have roofing in mind go for another hose, otherwise rubber is good to go.

PVC hoses are good enough for many situations as they are really light. The disadvantage of PVC hoses is that it coils and kinks and has a poor cold weather performance. But it can be overlooked as PVC hoses are cheapest of all.

Although nylon hoses are less durable than the others and kink easily, their advantage is that, they coil like a spring and are light in weight. Nylon coil hoses are commonplace in factories and assembly lines. Hanging from the ceiling the spring-like feature of the hose acts as a built-in hose reel.

Polyurethane hoses have the best cold weather performance and are half the weight of rubber. These hoses are recommended for roofers who have to span large distances and work off the ground. Although polyurethane hoses have some great properties, they can be expensive and tend to kink, twist and coil. They are also vulnerable to certain solvents like paints, so you will have to be careful.

In the end, choosing the right choice depends on what job you plan to do with it. You can choose the length, size, and material accordingly and see what fits your needs. Our hose experts at The Hose Shop can help you select the right hose best suitable for your job and budget.
