PCL’s air tool whip hoses are highly recommended by the Health & Safety Executive’s Guide HS(G) 39 as they are designed to distance an air tool from its air supply to prevent vibration. This enables tools to be used safely and helps to prolong the life of couplings and adaptors. This is fitted with PCL’s 100 Series Adaptor.
The Health & Safety Executive Guide HS(G) 39 states “requirements for quick acting couplings apply to most percussive and vibrating air tools, which may be fixed or handheld. If a quick acting coupling socket is fitted at the hose end adjacent to the tool, the plug should not be screwed directly into the inlet port but should be fitted onto a short isolation hose (0.5m to 1m long), thus isolating the plug and socket from the tool vibration.”
The International Standard (ISO 6150:1998) recommends a minimum of 300mm of flexible hose to be used between a vibrating tool and a quick acting coupling.
