New compressor advice needed..


Recommended Posts

I just bought myself a new compressor (Jun Air 3-4) and a new braided air hose. In both ends of the air hose, compressor end and airbrush quick connect end there's a rubber washer. Am I right to assume that the rubber washer seals the air hose and i don't need to use ptfe tape or a thread sealing liquid? Or should I still use the tape or thread lock?

I think it's safe to assume that - That's how my compressor's set up.

 

If it does leak, take it off and add some PTFE tape....

Got everything working fine, no leaks. I used Loctite on the adaptor that goes into the regulator and the rubber seals were sufficient on the hose connections. First time I've had an automatic stop/start compressor and must say it's definitely a plus point to not have it running all the time 🙂
