high pressure air line

Unread postAuthor: far_cry » Thu Jul 14, 2011 1:35 pm

i found THIS high pressure Stainless Steel Braided Hose Line, and in the description they said Working with in 3000-12000 PSI air pressures.

logically, we can use it for pressure from zero up to 12000, but why they wont write that ?

so can i used it for pressure of 1500 psi and below ?

From time to time (quite often in fact), the translation of chinese into english doesn't quite work. :lol:

Yes, you can use it at 1500psi and lower. They likely have another hose that is less money which has a lower rating.

If you check a any place like auto-zone, they sell grease gun line, which is really flexible and it is rated up to 3000 p.s.i The connections on it are 1/8"

Grease gun line is "ok" for once or twice at the pressure he's planning, but it's not made with pneumatic applications in mind. I've read about a couple instances where guys were using it with co2, and had bubbles and ruptures. Might be a compatability issue with co2 and the material the hose is made from....or the hose might be made to a lower standard.

Hardly dangerous if your grease gun blows out...considering the volume and material (grease) that doesn't expand significantly when released.

Not so with compressed gases. Cheap enough to use the "proper" stuff so why risk it??

Just my .02

you could always use macro line also if you wanted to change the length or take it apart without undoing the fittings.
