Failing pins and springs. Check valves come equipped with pins and springs that play a vital role in the opening and closing of the valve’s flange as fluid flows through the valve and on to downstream components.

Running air compressor lines to use pneumatic tools in a commercial setting seems like it would be simple, but especially in smaller commercial applications, there are many would-be options for transporting the compressed air. Here are the most commonly used options and their pros and cons. Black Iron Pipe Metal pipes can help compressed air, which contains moisture, to cool. This helps water separators in the line — essentially, filters that remove excess moisture before it can make its way to sensitive tools — to do their job more effectively. Black iron is extremely durable, although it can corrode over time. It can be heavy and it must be threaded to join pieces together, which requires more professional time and expertise. Thus, black iron can be harder to work with than copper, plastic or rubber, but it has fewer...
