Dynamic Force Chart

Dynamic force is the energy created by the pressure relative to the diameter of the hose.

Did you know that a 3” air hose at 500 psi generates over 3500 pounds of end force? Yes, my friend, that’s some serious tonnage.

Don’t blow an end off. Use the pressure rating chart and coupling selection guide to choose the appropriate fitting for the job.
