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

  • Pneumatic construction tools
  • Street and highway maintenance
  • Quarrying and mining
  • Petroleum research and development
  • Pneumatic instrumentation systems in chemical, petrochemical, and refining industries
  • Main air systems aboard ships

Critical among these are the compressed air discharge lines on single and multi-stage compressors. These lines must typically withstand air pressures from 7 bar (100 PSI) to about 275 bar (4,000 PSI) and temperatures from ambient to about 204° C (400°F).

In addition, such lines must be compatible with air/oil mixtures, not creating build ups of residues and at the same time be able to withstand inherent system vibration.

PTFE hoses are a perfect solution to convey compressed air from one stage to another, owing to minimal downtime and maintenance resulting in higher productivity; moreover, these hoses offer excellent dependability and versatility for total reliability and high performance.
