Factory Equipment Hose Examples

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

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.

Considered the use of TOYOCONNECTOR hose coupling that prevents leakage. Since it also reduces pressure loss, it was decided to sequentially make the switch together with the hose. Since the switch can be made in-house, the cost can be reduced.
