In this course, we'll delve into essential terms related to air hoses that you'll come across frequently. We'll begin with "kink memory," and then, will hop on to other terms like "coil memory," "abrasion resistance," "working pressure," "Burst pressure"and more. 

We will learn these key terms highlighting the maximum pressure the hose can endure under regular operating conditions without leaking or rupturing. Ensuring safety, we'll understand the significance of the "safety factor," along with an important term used in air hoses that is "CFM rating". 

Later on, we'll explore the different selection criteria for air hoses. We'll cover 'inner diameter,' 'length,' 'temperature resistance,' 'abrasion resistance,' 'pressure rating,' 'CFM flow rate,' and more. By considering these criteria, you will be able to choose the right air hose for safe and effective use as per your requirements.
