Did you find that the pneumatic tools were underpowered or did not operate as expected? This could be a problem with your air line accessories or connections, not the tool itself.
A quick check of the air line installation is one thing worth doing — it’s a simple task that only takes a few minutes.
- Inlet size: The size of the tool inlet.This value will help you choose the right size connector.
- Inlet type: The type of thread on the tool inlet.The three main types of air inlet thread for pneumatic tools are:
NPT (US pipe thread), mainly used in THE US,
PT (pipe thread), mainly used in Asia,
BSP (British standard pipeline), mainly used in Europe.
- Air compression in the form of dynamic pressure: the amount of compressed air required for the normal and efficient operation of the tool.This value is measured in cubic feet per meter (CFM) or liters per second/minute (L /s or L /m).
- Suggested hose diameter: Although this is not usually a tool value, tool manufacturers will usually suggest the correct hose diameter to help ensure that your tool performs well.This value is measured in millimeters (mm) and/or inches (“).
Therefore, the influence of pneumatic air hose on pneumatic tools can not be ignored. A responsible hose supplier provides hoses that have been strictly tested and the inside and outside diameters have been carefully tested. So be careful when choosing pneumatic air hoses.
