    A Shocking Danger: Static Electricity and Hose Assemblies


    Storm clouds. Shuffling feet on a carpet. A chemical hose in use. What do these three things have in common? They all have the capability of producing static electricity.

    Most of us are familiar with the shock associated with static electricity. Children have amused themselves for centuries by shuffling their feet across a carpet and touching a doorknob or playmate for a quick zap. As entertaining as these events may be, static electricity commands respect. In an industrial hose,...

    Selecting Proper Hoses and Couplings: An Air Hose Case Study


    Air is used as an energy source in almost every type of industry. It is an extremely efficient form of energy and is relatively inexpensive. It is easy to regulate and, when used with the proper equipment, is easy to clean and can be delivered relatively free of moisture, if necessary. Air, as it exists all around us, is at atmospheric pressure of 14.7 pounds per square inch. When it is used as an energy source, it is compressed and delivered through a piping system or air hose to tool or...
