Dear All,

I am looking to specific guidance or standard which indicate that which pressurized air lines  need whipcheck or other securing devices. ( i mean from which pressure we need to consider securing devices such as whipcheck)

Any help highly appreciated

We put them on 4" and 2" hoses that only have 20 psi on them.

You may check with your local, state, and/or federal OSHA regulators for all of the information that you are looking for. But for the most part if any line under pressure that is under 1/2" and is under 150 pounds pressure may not be required to have whipcheck device placed on or near connection. Anything over that maybe required. I know that any flexible hose and/or line 3/4" and over must have a whip control device, but there again you must look at your pressures that your working with.
