Replace tubing on I.R. 3HP compressor

by MMADMXR

I PURCHASED A SECOND HAND I.R. 3HP 60 GAL WITH A BAD PUMP. REPLACING IT WITH AN AFTER MARKET PUMP. THE ORIGINAL COPPER FEED LINE TO THE TANK FROM THE PUMP WAS/IS IN PRETTY ROUGH SHAPE.


I'M NOT EXACTLY CERTAIN WHAT SIZE IT IS BUT BENDING THIS LINE IS PROVING DIFFICULT, DO TO THE LIMITED SPACE AVAILABLE (SHARP COMPACT BENDS).

IS THERE A MORE FLEXIBLE PRODUCT AVAILABLE TO REPLACE THIS LINE OR SHOULD I ATTEMPT CUTTING AND SOLDERING A CUSTOM ATTACHMENT?

Sounds like it's now hard copper bent in a machine.

Given it's banged up, I'd consider replacing it with soft copper tube so you can bend it by hand (more or less).

Cutting and soldering will also work, if you're more comfortable with that.
