RULE # 1 - Correctly plumb your pneumatic system from the beginning!

PNEUMATIC LAW # 1 - Pneumatic systems need clean dry air to function efficiently.

A correctly plumbed pneumatic system not only prolongs pneumatic equipment, but conserves air, and saves your company $$ .

The first two key elements involved in attaining a correctly plumbed pneumatic system are to have well maintained compressor and a properly sized air dryer.

A. Slope down piping in the direction of the air flow. Recommended slope is about 1%.

B. Run piping overhead, at an elevation higher than machines being supplied.
C. Loop each line drop to minimize any water that may accumulate in the line from flowing down into a pneumatic component.
D. Precede every machine devise with a filter-regulator-lubricator unit.
E. Water cooled compressor aftercoolers are recommended for pneumatic systems having 50 HP and higher.
