P.V.C. for compressed air sevice

I wouldn't run 650 p.s.i. through it But have had no problems with 100 p.s.i. (on occasion) using p.v.c.. Have friends that also use it with no problems. I also wouldn't expose it to sunlight or put it where it might get broken.

I've used PVC on my compressor for over twelve years. I've never had a problem and it's CHEAP! Where I work we have used it probably for 20 years. Don't but the HF cooler I did and it was junk. if you slant the main "trunk" back to your compressor alot of the water will drain back to your compressor. Any truck place can sell you a brake hose or make one up for the flex from comp to hardline. When you pipe to a wall mount fitting run the pipe vertical run it to the floor and put a drain at the floor end. Then splice in a horizontal piece and then 6 inches vertical and put your chuck there kind o like an upside down "h". This will force most of the water to fall out of the airstream and use a drier. I keep one drier on a quick fitting and move it around as I need it so I don't have to spend all kinds of bucks for no reason.
Hope this helps

here be some pics of the setup...
some of the pics are bad, the camera is in the shop.

next time i will use galvanized pipe, and will use that plumbing putty stuff instead of the teflon tape. i found a couple of leaks, one at a union, and the other at an elboe. the one at the union, i took apart and added that plumbing liquid stuff, fixed.
at the elbow, the lowes guy did not thread it right, so it leaked...so i added some jb weld to seal it. always put your fitting atleast 3/4 of the threads in. any questions just let me know.

The rust from black pipe will ruin your air tools.

An old pop machine that is out dated makes a good air cooler.
Will also keep your beer cold.

My first shop had steel air lines, and I always had problems with it. After that every thing had PVC no more problems.
