Blasting hose pipe is a special rubber hose for blast work. Such shot blast hose is extra thick and abrasion resistant. Thus it can extend the life of your blasting service. It is for high-speed transfer of sand, steel shot and other abrasives used in metallurgy, stone or glass. It is a kink resistant blast hose that can bear external abuse and internal wear and tear. The conductive tube dissipates static to prevent dangerous clicks.

However, the sand blasting hose and nozzle has a certain service life. Thus you have to change a new abrasive blasting hose after a period.

When should replace the blasting hose pipe?

The easiest way to check for wear is to visually look for signs of damage on the exterior blast hose. If there was any voids, cracks or tears in the outer wall, you need to replace the sand blasting hose pipe.

External signs of damage

The integrity of the hose

Another way to identify a hose is to squeeze it. Squeeze the sandblasting hose every 20 cm in length. A suitable hose is difficult to squeeze. But if the hose is down, it indicates that the inner wall is corroded due to the flow of abrasives. Then you should replace it. If only one spot is dented, and it’s near one of the ends, you can cut off the frayed part and attach a hose fitting to the end.

Compromised layout

If the blaster bends the hose at a severe radius, the hose may wear out at that point. While this is very unsafe. Because the wear point is close to the operator. To prevent dangerous wear points, the operator should stretch the hose to the widest possible radius.

When above 3 situations appears, you have to replace the rubber blast hose. If you still have some questions about the such high pressure hose, just consult Hiteck.
