What size bull air hose should you use?


When it comes to selecting bull hoses for your blasting project… think BIG!

By having a large unrestricted bull hose, you can increase your efficiency. This is because, when you use an undersized air supply hose to connect the compressor to the blast pot, it can result in friction loss. Many of our customers over the years have upgraded their bull hose from a 1” jackhammer hose to a 2” bull hose and experienced a 30-45% increase in their speed of blasting.

Remember: a loss of 1 psi results in a 1½% reduction in production rate. For example, a loss of 10 psi means a loss of 15% of production.
