• Compact tool with gauge for checking pressure drop between network connection and tool
• Can be installed directly at the tool
• Included with the kit a 5 in 1 UNIVERSAL coupler with 5 types of plugs: 1/4 INDUSTRIAL, ARO 210, 1/4 TRUFLATE, LINCOLN and ULTRAFLO
Measuring Pressure Loss
Pressure loss should ideally be measured directly at the tool where it is connected to the air hose.
This will ensure that all potential sources of pressure loss are taken into account.
Standard procedure is then to measure again each component connection back to the air distribution network and, if possible, all the way back to the storage tank. This will allow to isolate any problematic component.
Avoiding Pressure and Overpressure
Loosing pressure can be costly, but increasing the pressure in a compressed air sytem to compensate for poor tool performance will only add to the energy costs without providing any long nor short-term benefits.
The key to a high-performance system lies in the reduction of pressure loss at the tool and application.
