Pressure Loss in Compressor Air Line

ID Pressure Loss Production Loss
3/4" 11.1 psi 16.6%
1" 2.4 psi 3.6%
1-1/4" 0.7 psi 1.0%
1-1/2" 0.2 psi 0.3%
Based on 150 cfm @ 100 psi through 50 feet of compressor air hose

For maximum efficiency, provide large air lines from the compressor to the blast machine. Place the compressor as near as possible to the blast operation. Use the largest air hose available.
