When it comes to your equipment it is important to make sure that it is kept up and working properly. One of the main devices that you want to maintain is your compressed air service device that you use. When working with compressed air you want to make sure everything is working properly. If not, you can experience physical damage as well as other damages to your work and body.
Monitor your pressure
With anything pressurized you want to make sure that you don’t over exceed the recommended pressure levels. To do this, you want to install a pressure gauge to your tanks. This gauge will tell you where you are and if you are in the danger zone. One area on the gauge you want to look at is the red line.
Check your hoses
When you have compressed air it will need to travel down through a hose. This hose needs to be free of kinks and other deformities. You will also want to make sure that there are no holes in your line and that they are not worn. If you have any damage to your hoses, replace them immediately before use.
The nozzles on your hoses need to be looked at as well. If your nozzles are clogged or otherwise damaged, they will not release air at a regular rate. If your hoses are clogged and the nozzles can’t release the pressure the hoses and other parts of the tank may pop or explode causing a lot of damage.
Follow safety instructions
No matter what you do or what your end goals are it all comes down to following instructions, safety guidelines and so much more. If you fail to follow instructions or safety guidelines it could result in damage, injuries and even death in extreme situations.
