Idea about cooling compressor line temps
 
Okay, so I got this idea after I was watching Two Guys Garage and thought someone here might be able to confirm or denie an idea I have.

My thought was to put an A/C condenser in the air line system from the output of the compressor. I would mount a fan that would blow air thru the condenser to help cool the air moving it. Kind of like an intercooler for a turbo.

I typically have my compressor output set to 110-120 psi so my question is, would an A/C condenser handle this pressure and would this idea work for cooling the output line temps before running thru a water trap/filter?

Thanks

The AC condersor will handle the pressure with no problem at all. Your idea is sound.

i am moving my compressor up the hill from my shop. i will bury the line coming to the shop and do a field something like lateral lines. let the ground cool the air before it comes into the shop. will have a moisture trap there. a/c condensers work well and can hold 400 lbs .

That picture almost looks like a transmission cooler. Any details on that or would a transmission cooler work? I was thinking they were more for liquids where a car A/C condenser had gas thru it.

Trying to do this low buck.

i would use a large tube and fin cooler for volume. avoid a/c condensers that may chock down you flow.

Thanks for the info. Definitely more than I want to spend but it did give me some good search info and I found this,

About half the price and looks like it has good flow numbers.

Thanks agian for the info everyone.
