Then use a fan to pull air around the pipes. I think I'm going to put this in between the compressor pump and the compressor tank instead of after the tank like most are.
Anyone make an air dryer and have some pics of it?
Buy about 5 sticks of 3/4 Copper 10' Sticks.
Use 4 sticks and make the horizontal runs however make them run up hill at about 45° to vertical.
Use the 5th stick to feed into the bottom and out from the top.
Hang this copper art on the wall, come out of the compressor head through the grid then into the tank. No fan necessary.
If you tip this rectangle you can put a drain on the bottom corner opposite the inlet.
Use hose between the copper and the compressor AND the tank.
I think I need a picture...
