Pressure Drop at the Tool?

Pressure drop at the tool – what should you do?

The efficiency of a compressed air system doesn’t just depend on the compressor. The connection to the compressed air tool can make a significant difference.

Tips to decrease the pressure drop at the air tool:

  • Pressure Regulator – open the pressure regulator up. You may even be able to reduce system pressure as well.
  • Connection – increase the flow diameter of the connection to the air tool.
  • Hose – increase the hose diameter. If using a spiral hose, switch to a smooth one. Spiral hoses are energy wasters.
  • Water Separator – do you have decentralized water separators? Switch to drying your compressed air centrally. Water separators are energy wasters as well.
  • System Pressure – increase the pressure in the air-main or install larger diameter piping.

Fixing the pressure drop at the tool can increase productivity, minimize product defects and reduce the run hours on your compressor.
