Air & Multipurpose Hose
Air and multipurpose hose has always been at our core. The category of multipurpose typically includes those specs traditionally produced in long lengths (think 500 to 700 feet) on reels. Also known as general purpose hose, these specs are made with a smooth cover offered in a variety of colors (color coding for type of service is common), and from sizes ranging from 1/4 inch to 2 inch. We offer specs to best suit particular applications. For best heat, chemical, and environmental resistance, EPDM rubber is our choice. If a hose tube must be constructed of oil resistant elastomers, we off the highest quality Nitrile rubber. When an application calls for a hose to resist particularly severe abrasion, we offer our carboxylated Nitrile cover. For ease of identification for particular media, Unisource also produced multipurpose hose in red, black, blue, green, and yellow, Unisource hose provide the best combination of performance, durability, and ease of use.
Our mandrel-built hoses are mostly made in sizes 1-inch to 3-inch and in lengths up to 100 feet. Rubber covers will have a fabric impression and reinforcing made of either textile or wire. Expect exceptional performance and durability. Used on air drills and as a main air supply line from compressor to drill.
