We have a compressor installed under a train where we use the compressed air to operate different equipment (e.g. door, brake, etc). We notices there are lot of corrosion in the air lines far away from the compressor (at the opposite end of the train). We are suspecting condensation formed when the ambient air is surrounding the pipe is too cold. We are thinking about putting insulation around the air line to prevent condensation from forming. Is it a valid method? Any experience with this? Any suggestion for the insulation material for compressed air line?
