We have received some questions recently about one of our products, The Hose Rocket, so we wanted to take some time to clarify on the purpose, and proper use of this great product!
Firstly, let’s look at the purpose of a Hose Rocket! Hose Rockets are essentially powder hose cleaners, meant to speed up cleaning and decontaminating after someone has been powder coating. As any coater knows, it is important to make sure all powder hose is properly cleaned out, whether you’re changing colors, or just keeping up on equipment maintenance. Now that you know what the Hose Rocket is made for, let’s move on to how to properly use one!
Operation of the Hose Rocket is easy, and only requires the hose rocket itself, the powder hose to be cleaned out, and most importantly, air! Simply take your Hose Rocket and insert it into one end of your powder hose. On the same end, take an air nozzle (that is connected to an air compressor obviously!) and shoot a blast of air behind the hose rocket. This will propel the rocket through the length of powder hose, cleaning out powder as it travels, and eventually shooting out the other end! It’s as simple as that! We made a short instructional video on how to use the Hose Rockets, and you can watch it by clicking the link!Hose Rocket Video
