Our range of pneumatic tubing, air hose components and accessories can be combined to support all pneumatic and some fluid applications. Products in this category include an extensive selection of function fittings and tube manifolds, many of which are available in a variety of different materials including plastic, brass, and stainless steel.
What types of hose connectors and accessories are available?
We offer a full catalogue of different pneumatic hose connector fittings, allowing for the powering of common workshop/garage air tools such as sanders, wrenches, nail guns, compressors, welders, gas cylinders and oxygen supplies. Other types of pneumatic tubing and air hose accessories we always stock include:
- Tube clips and cutters for achieving the desired length of hose, and securing pneumatic air line tubing to a fixed surface for tidy work areas while safely avoiding machinery or other obstructions.
- Tube manifolds and manifold caps, commonly used in pneumatic and hydraulic tubing systems to connect multiple smaller pipes into one larger one, controlling air or liquid flow around the system via a series of valves.
- Hose reel mountings and other air line storage/housing devices.
We also offer copper tubing and piping for domestic and commercial movement of liquids, gases and oils. Copper tubing is typically preferred in these sorts of systems due to several of its unique properties:
- Its an excellent conductive material, great for transferring heat in HVAC setups
- Its a difficult medium for bacteria to grow on, ideal for use in water-carrying applications
- Copper tubing is a strong and durable material that doesnt corrode easily, yet offers enough flexibility for buildings and systems that require tight bends and cornering.
What do I need to know about buying air hose for pneumatic applications?
- Air hose comes in a range of sizes, with different operating temperatures and pressures. Understanding the maximum values for your intended application is critical to ensuring the safety of the user, as well as the integrity and longevity of the hose.
- Air hoses, unlike typical hoses, tend to have high operating pressures - but it's vitally important to check manufacturer guidelines against your requirements prior to installation.
- Air hose can be fixed in place around a workstation, or mounted on retractable reels affixed to a nearby wall or ceiling.
- It can typically be cut to length where necessary.
