black pipe airlines and the crud that develops in them
I guess no one has ever seen aluminum white rust from moisture. I agree with the first pics being staged from the manufacture selling the alum tube...Bob
I can tell you for a fact that the pipes are not really staged. I mean they are for a commercial, but I work with several 50 HP + air compressors and companies will save money and not put a drier in and you will end up with rust even worse then this. I just got done putting in new copper air lines with the new Rigid Pro press tool which is awesome!
I also have a customer who has all aluminum piping and that has rust in it as well, and that system is only 1 year old with a dryer in it.
