BLAST HOSE ROI MADE SIMPLE

If your team typically uses a 1.25” blast hose with #7 & #8 nozzles – you’ll be interested to learn that by increasing the hose to a 1.5” you’ll increase your pressure approximately 12 psi as well as increasing your overall production capacity by 18%. These figures pertain to hose run of 200 feet.

 

  • 1.25” Blast hose loses 5-6 psi per 50 foot run of hose
  • 1.50” Blast hose loses 2-3 psi per 50 foot run of hose
  • You lose an average of 3 psi per 50 foot run of hose when using the 1.25” vs. 1.50”
  • For every 1 psi of pressure lost = 1.5% productivity lost
  • For every 1 psi of pressure lost = $5 per hour lost
  • If 1.25” blast hose loses avg 3 psi vs. 1.50” – then that will equal $15/hour lost per 50 foot run of hose

YOU’LL SAVE $255 EVERY 17 HOURS BY UPPING YOUR HOSE DIAMETER ¼ INCH! At $15/hour lost, it would take just 17 hours of blasting with a new 1.5” hose to recoup the cost of the new hose.
