Panblast Abrasive Blasting Hoses
Panblast hoses from Blue Dog Blasting provide strong and durable abrasive sandblasting hoses with maximum air pressure and optimum lifespans. Don’t settle for an old thinning hose for your tough jobs. Blue Dog carries Panblast abrasive blasting hose in both 2-ply and 4-ply. With tough exteriors and reinforced inner-liners, find the length you need from our selection of powerful blasting equipment below.
Before you make your purchase, here are a few keys to choosing the right blast hose:
Note that the hose should be 3 times bigger than the nozzle size. Check the hose ID to determine how it measures up to the nozzle size. Every Blue Dog product is clearly labeled and we also offer a selection of quality nozzles. Improper sizing causes unnecessary wear and tear on the inside of your blasting tube which leads to a shorter lifespan for your equipment. Proper sizing not only increases the lifespan, but ensures that the air pressure is not lost from hose to surface.
Contractors need two hoses for abrasive blasting jobs and each requires a different length to ensure the best blasting power. The first hose is the one attached from the air compressor to the blast pot and the second hose runs from the blast pot to your work surface. The first hose is typically longer and requires a larger ID size because the compressor, unlike the blast pot is not highly portable. A longer hose from compressor to blast pot give your more mobility and the larger ID ensures that the blasting medium gets to the pot. The second hose from blast pot to work surface should be short, so you can get the maximum amount of pressure from the hose.

Blue Dog Blasting, your one-stop shop for serious sandblasting equipment, provides a hardy line of 2-ply blast hoses. The Blue Dog 2-ply hose accepts properly-sized couplings and nozzles and is compatible with all forms of blast media. In terms of hose size offerings, the 2-ply lies between the supa hose and 4-ply line. Whereas the supa is a skinnier and more flexible hose, the 2-ply hose offers a stiffer alternative for serious abrasive blasting jobs. But in comparison to 4-ply hoses, the 2-ply offers increased flexibility without sacrificing durability.
Each 2-ply hose comes with reinforced features, just like our 4-ply series, and is often used for similar industrial jobs.
A 2 ply sandblasting hose is made with two liners:
- An abrasive resistant natural rubber liner consisting of two layers
- A high tensile, textile cord reinforced liner.
As mentioned above, the cover of the hose is weather, ozone, and abrasion resistant. The small inside diameter sandblasting hose can be used for shorter runs and as a sandblasting cabinet hose. It can also be used as your “whip hose,” or the final 10 to 15 ft at your blast nozzle for better control.
Our 2 ply sandblasting hose is sold in 10", 25", 50", 100" and bulk 200" +/- 6 inches.
Working Pressure: 217 psi.
In any pressure blast system, your blast hose should be three or four times the ID of your nozzle orifice. Choosing the right size for your blast hose has 2 major benefits – it prolongs the life of your hose and helps maintains adequate pressure at the blast nozzle.
If you’re in the market for a serious piece of abrasive blasting equipment with more support and higher pressure than a 2 braid or Supa hose, then the 4 ply abrasive blasting hose is the natural next step.
Our 4 ply blast hose is made with two liners:
- An abrasive resistant natural rubber liner consisting of four layers with a high tensile
- A textile cord reinforced liner
The casing is weather, ozone, and abrasion resistant, making it the ideal piece of blasting equipment for industrial settings. Crewmen typically move up to the 4 ply hose when working near railroads or shipyards knowing they can rely on the reinforced exterior. This blast hose is tough enough to withstand the typical weathering caused from dragging and won’t collapse under the weight of light traffic.
The 4 ply sandblasting hose is sold in 10", 25", 50", 100" and bulk 200" lengths +/- 6 inches.
Work pressure: 290 psi.
The Blue Dog 4 ply hose can be paired with any standard couplings, nozzle holders or blasting machine. Due to the high tensile, the 4 ply hose is typically paired with other attachments to increase flexibility on the job. The twin hose and dead man control, which are sold separately, are our top pairing items for this blast hose. Each attachment provides increased control when moving about the blast site which ensures a safer workspace. Because the 4 ply blast hose is rarely purchased alone, take advantage of the blasting inventory at Blue Dog and get all of the parts you need for the hose from one location.
