I buy my filters from SCATBLAST, [aka TIP], the blasting cabinet mfgr. Have used them for 20+ yrs.. no complaints.
They have a drwg on how to plumb your system.
If you plan on painting w/ the system, DO NOT use a lubricator on the main line!

can pex be use for air lines??
When i built my shop seven years ago i used Pex plastic waterline for my airlines. Compressors in the attic dormer with a short quick disconect hose to a 8 outlet copper plumbing manifold..seperate Pex lines in the walls to 8 double gang outlets..air and power at each. works like a charm..flexable easy install and has never given me any trouble holding 85 psi regulated for weeks on end:)
