Troubleshooting Examples – Factory Hoses

1: Measures for energy savings and air leak in hoses needed

Description

At a plant producing welding materials where a program had been implemented to decrease energy consumption, they had problems with air leaks at the connection of the PVC hose used for air and the barb fitting nipple. The installation work was spread out among several workers, so there was fluctuation in the torque used to fasten the clamps. They implemented a program to regularly tighten the clamps, but they continued to have trouble.

They tried out the TOYOCONNECTOR. Their air leaks disappeared, and with the decreased need to run the compressor, they saved energy. They were also able to cancel their clamp tightening program. Problem solved!

2: Difficulty in tightening clamp for air leak coming from ceiling hose

Description

A company rerouted metal pipes carrying air to the ceiling, and from there, hoses took the air to machining equipment, so that the layout could be changed. Regular maintenance to tighten the fitting clamp was not possible next to the ceiling. Leaks kept showing up in different places and then the hose in the ceiling came off altogether.

Problem solved with the TOYOCONNECTOR, no tightening required. They need no maintenance, and the hose solved their air problems. Additionally, they effectively saved energy, and are looking at installing the TOYOCONNECTOR in another plant.

3: After 10 years of use, couplings frequently become disconnected and air leaks from the coupling

Description

About 80 percent of the air hoses in the plant were made of PVC. After around 10 years of use, air leaks near the coupling and disconnections were occurring frequently, and they required immediate attention.
