Need ideas to stop air lines from freezing. Really bad between 30 and 35 f
Air doesn't freeze, does it? I know the moisture in the air will, but just air?
I am so glad you pointed that out.
I can't recall if it is ether or alcohol that you add to the lines to prevent freezing.
If you know any Truck Drivers, you could ask them, they use it to prevent air brake lines from freezing.
That one went over my head I guess.
Everthing on the market is one of three thing, expensive, to big or takes power.
I just found this one, nice of them to give me the plans, now just to find a canister to use to build my own.
Good I've been trying to do that for months:banana:
Your air tools will appreciate it also. Do you now run an FLR at the compressor?
Have tried in the past didn't help and didn't last long bouncing around in a construction truck, some tools don't want to be oiled.
Wouldn't you have the same problem with any type of air seperator freezing if it's cold enough to freeze your air lines?
The trick is to get the water out of the air before it gets to the hose. We lose only a few days a year to this and who wants to work in the cold anyway but customers don't seem to understand, when it is a few degrees above freezing.
