EMPTY THE LINE

Cleaning out the line is the best practice for proper hose care. It makes rolling hose back onto the cart far easier and more successful and causes less wear and tear.

Guidelines and Tips for Pigging

  • Ensure everyone is aware of the dangers of compressed air and maintain a respectable distance of 50 feet from the hose and any units when the line is under pressure. Never break couplers until all pressure in the system is diffused.
  • Use gravity to your advantage. Air compressors may not be able to push liquid over big hills. Flow back into the pit through the pump when necessary, or use a portable launcher to start from the top of a hill.
  • Do not allow pumps to freely spin as air flows through bypasses. Be sure to engage clutches if available.
  • For better air compressor performance, upgrade the air hose to a larger diameter (1.5" Air Hose - in stock at PCE, call to order)
  • Recommendations for compressor sizes: 6" hose, 185-250 cfm; 7" hose, 250-375 cfm; 8" hose, 375-600 cfm
  • Use a pigging bullet or ball for best performance.
