copper pipping

Postby painter john » Mon Nov 23, 2009 4:02 pm

Was looking on the sharpe site and it states that copper should not be used for air pipping as basically it could lead to colour problems in paint is my taking on it.I had noticed for a few weeks after I fitted copper pipping that there was a copper scum inside the filter bowls.
Just wondered what any of you think on this

Hey PJ,
Copper (types L & K ) is one of the most preferred materials used for compressed air delivery systems. An important function of compressed air piping is to dissipate heat & cool the compressed air - copper does this best. The residue you see is probably from the solder and the new pipe itself. What you see will fade away with time. I have been in this business for a hundred years and I have yet to see or hear of any color mismatches cause by copper piping.
Cheers,
