Several years ago , I worked general maintenance for a large Auto/truck parts & supply store . He also sold all types autobody shop equipment & supplies . He set me up as air compressor installer & maintenance plus occassionaly if the customer wanted to do his own installation , my job was to go to that particular body shop or garge to give the guy instructions & ideas for piping & safety. All compressor companies we dealt with at that time demanded 3/4" Galvanized pipe & fittings , with an inline drain valve for draining water buildup . Black pipe is for gas & is dangerous for compressed air usage . If other than Galv pipe was installed , the company voided the warranty on the compressor . HTH ! God bless, Ken

Only issue I know of with plain steel pipe is corrosion. Have to keep and eye on it and have filters if painting.

I had 3/4 copper in the last shop, liked it alot. New shop hasn't been hard plumbed yet. Planning on either transport air line (pex) or conventional pex with a starter piece of copper for cooling.

Schedule 40 black and schedule 40 galvanised pipe both are rated for 150 lbs working pressure. Black pipe with malable fittings is fine for air line. My Quincy compresser is factory piped to the tank with black pipe.
