Tips When Installing your Piping
All too often, planning the compressed air piping system is the last consideration when organizing a shop floor. Proper time and planning needs to go into account when designing a compressed air piping system. Ensuring your system is designed efficiently will save you a headache down the road. A few things to watch for when designing your system are:
1. Leaks via connectors: One of the most common mistakes when putting together your piping system. Make sure to check for leaks.
2. Moisture: Moisture corrodes certain types of piping, causing rust to flake off into the air stream. The rust and vapor will reach at the equipment, clogging nozzles and contaminating the material you intend for the compressed air to deliver or apply.
3. Sharp angles: This is simple, sharp turns = slower pressure. Remember, A straight path in air flow is the most efficient, but we get not always possible.
4. Blocks or obstructions: Obstructions can occur as corrosion in the piping system breaks off. Main restriction points for obstructions are valves and connectors within your system.
