BLACK STEEL PIPE
Black pipe is the most commonly used pipe recommended for compressed air systems. It is easy to get your hands on, it is strong and durable,
and most people are familiar with how to install it. However, it will produce rust contamination that damages pneumatic tooling.
The pipe is uncoated which leads to rusting. The installation of black pipe systems requires a large amount of time.
Even more, you will need to plan carefully. Changes to the system will require de-pressurizing while new drops or additional loops are added.
