Compressed Air Piping System Precautions


While compressed air is quite handy, it can be dangerous when not used properly.

  • A blast of air under 40 psi from 4 inches away can rupture an eardrum or cause brain damage.
  • As little as 12 p.s.i can pop an eyeball from its socket.
  • Air can enter the navel, even through a layer of clothing, and inflate and rupture the intestines.
  • Directed at the mouth, compressed air can rupture the lungs.

The following guidelines will reduce the risk of injury when using compressed air piping system:

  • Examine all hoses and connections to see they are in good condition before turning pressure on.
  • Never point the air hose nozzle at any part of your body or at any other person.
  • Never look into the end of a compressed air device.
  • No horseplay with air hose.
  • Never kink the hose to stop airflow – turn it off at the control valve.
  • When using air for cleaning, make sure the pressure is no higher than 30 p.s.i.
  • Always wear eye protection when using compressed air.
