For everyday heroes under pressure
Pneumatic tools are used in many fields – industry, construction, mining and tunnel construction, geothermal heat and well drilling.
A compressor generates compressed air, which a hose feeds to the tool, which in turn causes the mechanism to move. Pneumatic tools are real powerhouses!
This power is also felt by the compressed air hose. GH compressed air hoses have a safety factor of 1:4 for working pressure to burst pressure.
And it gets hot, too! Immediately after compression, the compressed air has a temperature of between 70 and 200°C. If the temperature cannot be considerably reduced after compression, there is a risk of the compressed air hose becoming detached from the coupling to the compressor or tool.
The hose then becomes an unpredictable weapon! This risk increases with a larger hose diameter and higher pressure.
We are aware of these dangers and design GH compressed air hoses so that they are averted. And there are more GH benefits to discover …
|Stability under pressure|
Our elevated understanding of hoses and applications is constantly put into practice in our development and design – as a result, GH compressed air hoses are up to a third lighter and considerably more flexible to handle than mandrel-wound industrial hoses.
Specially engineered fittings and protective sleeves ensure even more safety in operation. We think ahead so that everyday heroes don’t come under pressure!
