Let's talk shop ... piping that is. When we moved into our Canfield, Ohio plant, we had a shop full of air tools and needed to get set up quickly. We ran temporary rubber air hoses with 4-way crosses and quick connectors. Hoses, crosses and connectors were everywhere! Well, it wasn't long before we started to have problems - air drills were failing, air rivet guns would not operate properly, and shears and other air-operated equipment were out of order more often than not. The reason for this is simple. By using long lengths of air hoses, moisture stayed in a vapor form, which passed through our water separators. It didn't matter how many water separators we had installed; moisture worked its way into our air tools, causing premature failure.

We needed to make a change fast, so we equipped our entire shop with metal piping. The result was no more burned out air tools, no more clogged air filters and fittings, and our air tools lasted for years! Moral of the story: install a proper metal piping system and you will eliminate 95% of all moisture problems for smoother-running, longer-lasting air-operated tools and equipment. Even a small shop should have metal piping installed. With our affordable "piping kits", you can install the correct piping system in your shop at a reasonable cost.

Using our diagram and components, you can easily handle the installation yourself! Start with "AA" (Orange Starter Kit) from your air compressor. Then add each module as you expand your shop:"BB" (Yellow Moisture and Oil Removing Kit) and "CC" (Green Moisture Removing Kit). Final section is "EL" (End of the Line Kit), which provides a convenient drain outlet. Add as many modules as you need - from a small shop with one or two outlets to a large shop with many outlets.

Metal piping is the answer to moisture problems and will last for many years. Choose 1/2" or 3/4" metal pipe sizes - 1/2" pipe for up to 75 feet of horizontal pipe runs from your compressor, and 3/4" pipe for horizontal runs over 75 feet. Mount piping along the walls of your shop. Not only does the metal piping act as an "air reservoir", it also enables the moisture-laden air to cool, so the water separators can do their job. The most important feature is the use of "risers", which allow the system to draw dry air from the piping, with the water separators removing most of the remaining moisture. (Moisture condenses in the cold metal pipes and can be easily removed by the water separators.)

Use Black Iron Pipe only. We do not recommend galvanized metal pipe, as galvanization can come off the inside of the pipe, clogging separators and regulators. Do not use PVC pipe, as PVC will not help cool the air; and glued joints often separate. Avoid copper tubing, as it is easily damaged; and soldered joints can come loose under pressure (Safety Hazard).

"AA" (orange) Starter Kit - This kit has a 3/4" x 1/2" Bushing to connect to the outlet valve of most air compressors. Also includes: Street Elbow, Flexible Metal Hose to connect to air piping (very critical to reduce vibration), 3 Pipe Couplings and Union, 10 ft. of assorted Metal Piping and Nipples, Tee, ASME Safety Valve (important), 3 Wall Mounting Brackets, Teflon Tape. Everything you need to get started.

"BB" (yellow) Moisture and Oil Removing Kit - For flawless paint jobs! Includes: 13 ft. of assorted Metal Piping, Nipples, Couplings, Tees, Elbows, 2 Brass Ball Valves, 3411-22 Air Line Regulator/Separator with Gauge, 3405-60 Coalescing Filter with Extra Element, Wall Mounting Bracket for Coalescing Filter, 3 Wall Mounting Brackets for Piping, Teflon Tape and Illustrated Instructions for quick and easy installation. You will never regret installing a proper air line piping system, which will last for many, many years.

"CC" (green) Moisture Removing Kit -Includes: 13 ft. of assorted Metal Piping, Nipples, Couplings, Tees, Elbows, Bushing, 2 Brass Valves, 3402-16 Water Separator, 3409-16 Air Line Regulator and Gauge, Wall Mounting Bracket for Water Separator, 3 Wall Mounting Brackets for Piping, Teflon Tape and Illustrated Instructions which will guide you through the installation quickly and easily.

"EL" (blue) End of the Line Kit -It is important to extend the piping beyond your equipment, so moisture can be easily removed by opening the Drain Valve daily. This kit includes: 12 ft. of assorted Metal Piping, Coupling, Elbow, Union, 1/2" Ball Valve (Drain Valve), 3 Wall Mounting Brackets for Piping, Teflon Tape and Illustrated Instructions. Do yourself a favor and install the correct air lines in your shop!

"AP" All Piping Described Above - Includes all 4 kits above, available in 1/2" or 3/4" for a complete installation. Start with "AA" (Orange Starter Kit) from your air compressor. Then add "BB" (Yellow Moisture and Oil Removing Kit) and "CC" (Green Moisture Removing Kit). Final section is "EL" (End of the Line Kit), which provides a convenient drain outlet. Add modules as you need them. Free with "AP" Kit - Two (2) 14" Pipe Wrenches. All kits include Wall Mounting Brackets, Teflon Tape and Instructions.

Tech Tip: Remember to use 1/2" pipe for up to 75 feet of horizontal runs of pipe from your compressor. Use 3/4" pipe for horizontal runs of over 75 feet.
