Sandblasting hoses

Sandblasting hose is a hose that is used for abrasive blasting work. This includes not only sandblasting, but also shot blasting, ice blasting, glass bead blasting, soda blasting, and more. Due to the nature of this work, each sandblasting hose is made from abrasion resistant materials, such as an SBR/NR rubber compound. In addition, it has reinforcement by means of a textile (or in some cases metal) braid. 

You can recognize the abrasibility of the inner layer from the ISO 4649 norm (formerly DIN 53516). The lower the value of sandblasting hoses, the greater the resistance to abrasion forces they possess. It is worth mentioning here that these types of hoses are usually used together with special couplings for sandblasting. This ensures that the quality of work is maintained at an optimum level.

How sandblasting hose is built?

A sandblasting hose is built from several layers so it can effectively endure the hardship of transporting abrasives under high pressure:

  • inner layer — usually made from a polymer. It is characterised by abrasion and heat resistance. In addition, it is smooth, which reduces friction and extends the service life of the sandblasting hose; 
  • middle layer — this is a braid-reinforced layer that makes the sandblasting hose anti-static. This protects the worker from possible electrical failure of the sandblaster; 
  • outer layer — this also uses a polymeric material, usually with a textile braid. The layer also provides resistance to extremes of temperature and weather.

In our offer, you will find sandblasting hoses from top manufacturers that feature just such a design. In addition, we offer them in various lengths so that you can easily find the perfect sandblasting hose for your needs.

How to choose a sandblasting hose?

When you choose a sandblasting hose, take special note of its maximum working pressure, internal diameter, length and gasket type:

  • maximum working pressure — the first and most important parameter, which should correspond to the working pressure of the device. Exceeding the permissible values in this range can lead to serious failures, rupture of the hose, and even danger to life; 
  • internal diameter — this should be 3-4 times the throughput of the nozzle you are using. Also consider that the larger the diameter, the lower the friction loss. However, it should ould not be too large, as this will negatively affect the working pressure;
  • length — adjust it to your own needs when sandblasting. However, avoid overdoing it, as a hose that is too long will result in a loss of abrasive. The hose should also be a single piece. Combining several hoses will lead to loss of pressure and deterioration of the quality of the work;
  • gasket type — you have a choice of two- or four-layer gaskets. Choose the right one depending on the specific sandblasting you are performing.

Where are sandblasting hoses used?

Sandblasting hoses are used wherever a sandblaster is used:

  • treatment of metal surfaces, i.e. removal of old paint, varnish and rust;
  • repair and maintenance of various equipment;
  • cleaning wooden and concrete surfaces;
  • artistic treatment of glass and wood, i.e. the creation of various patterns on their surface

After sandblasting, the material surface becomes smooth and clean. All pores and cracks disappear, which enables, for example, more effective painting. There is no other treatment that can compare with the accuracy of sandblasting.

FAQ

Which hose for sandblasting?

arrow-up

The sandblasting hose should have an internal diameter 3-4 times the size of the nozzle, and must be abrasion resistant and robust to cope with the working pressure.

Is sandblasting legal?

arrow-up

Sandblasting is legal if you comply with all health and safety regulations. The main thing that is prohibited is the use of dry quartz sand as an abrasive. This is because inhaling its dust can cause serious respiratory diseases.

What is the difference between the soda blasting and sandblasting?

arrow-up

Soda blasting differs from sandblasting in that it is only carried out wet, and the abrasive is baking soda dissolved in water. This method is much safer and in many cases more effective than traditional sandblasting.
