Air compressor discharge

Portable and stationary air compressors

Air compressor discharge

Features and benefits

  • Inert to air and air/oil mixtures vs rubber hose
  • Extreme reliability, thus longer service life
  • Compatible with high temperatures of compressed air vs rubber hose
  • More dependable; less maintenance an downtime
  • Greater pressure ratings vs comparable rubber hoses
  • Greater safety and reliability. Assured system dependability
  • Unaffected by system vibration vs rigid tubing
  • Less change of leakage, thus greater system efficiency. Less maintenance and downtime, thus lower operating cost
  • Inherent flexibility vs rigid tubing
  • Easier to install and remove
  • Lower pressure drop vs rubber hose or rigid tubing
  • Greater system efficiency

Portable and stationary air compressors of single and multi-stage design are used worldwide for a host of air-power requirements:

Critical among these are the compressed air discharge lines on single and multi-stage compressors. These lines must typically withstand air pressures from 100 PSI to about 4,000 PSI and temperatures from ambient to about 400°F.

In addition, the lines must be compatible with air/oil mixtures and, at the same time, be able to withstand inherent system vibration.

Hoses of PTFE convey the compressed air from one stage to the next through a common junction box.
