Maxline TUBING

  • Maxline tubing can be formed into a sweeping curve much like electrical conduit, in some installations eliminating the need for an elbow fitting in the corners
  • Outside corners typically need an elbow fitting
  • When formed into a corner sweep, the Maxline tubing will hold it shape

1/2” MAXLINE

In Wall, if there is room in the wall, you can bend the tubing behind the outlet
If the wall space is limited, an elbow is needed

IN WALL 3/4”-1” MAXLINE

In Wall, for this scenario a Maxline compression elbow takes up a lot of space
Use a black pipe nipple and black pipe threaded elbow behind the outlet

Outside Outlet Mounting

In Floor/Burial:

  • Maxline can be buried under concrete, underground
  • Sleeve any Maxline coming thru the concrete
  • if fittings need to be buried, use heat shrink tubing or wrap to keep the elements off of them, use caution not to overheat
  • Best to come in the top of a wall outlet to drain moisture

Wall Mounting Clips

  • Use the Maxline clips with a screw for wall mounting
  • 1/2" Tubing: space pipe clips every 3 ft
  • 3/4” Tubing: space pipe clips every 4 to 5 ft
  • 1” Tubing: space pipe clips every 4 to 5 ft

Compressor Hookup:

use a jumper hose to a Filter/Regulator unit
The air from the air compressor must enter the port labeled IN on the filter/regulator

Assembling Pipe Thread:

Assemble all NPT threads with two wraps of teflon tape and then
PIPE SEALANT which prevents thread galling.

1" Maxline Master Kit

We have not created a "kit" for the 1" Maxline.

Most of the applications for the 1" Maxline are more complex and reduce to different tubing sizes.
Its best that we create a custom parts list, so you get exactly what you need.

Straightening Maxline

I am installing ¾" Maxline-Rapidair piping in my shop. Being a craftsman/perfectionist, I could not live with slightly curvey piping for my workshop air compressor lines. In order to solve my issue, I designed and built this 1" piping/tubing tamer machine for straitening out the ¾” Maxline-Rapidair piping/tubing. None of the posts I found on the web came close to working this issue for me. Don’t get me wrong-Maxline is easily hand-formed if you are not as picky as I am.

The key "find" for the machine to work well was the seven Oatley 3" Plastic Mechanical Test plugs for the wheels/guides- (Home Depot plumbing section). I inserted 1" dia. x 3/8" wide Nylon spacers (Orchard Supply Hardware) in place of the large black rubber O-rings that came with the test plugs. This allowed for the approx. 1" O.D. of the 3/4" Maxline piping to slide right through perfectly snug. Note: I had to smooth down the nubs on the inside surface of the Test plug inner wheels with a file & sandpaper so the piping could easily slide through without any damage. Machine is built with ¾" plywood and 1"x 3" poplar (actual dim.=3/4"x 2.5" poplar) for strength. Note: I use "Rockler" 3/8" steel inserts with hardwoods like poplar…they recommend a 9/16” pre-drilled hole. Then I use my drill press with the motor off, tension on the handle to hand turn/install the threaded inserts in with the insert tool (also "Rockler") in the chuck. They need to be strait for the tensioning bracket to line up well. I have included a drawing to show how it all goes together (not an easy jig to build).

It’s important to try a test piece to get the proper tension for straitening by raising or lowering the “Tensioning Bracket”. The wheels should be tight and not turn(but not too tight). I also put the 100’ roll on an old used electrical wire spool (see photo) I picked up for free. This helps to feed it into the machine a little more smoothly (clamp it down). I would have a helper on hand to feed it properly. Bolt or screw the machine down on a makeshift table in front of the spool of pipe (I had three tables laid out end to end for long pieces). I used rubber gloves to give me a better grip when pulling the piping through the machine. Pull slow, steady, and strait as possible over the end to end tables. Lay out a tape measure along side the pipe and cut. Finally, I stored the lengths of Maxline piping needed in 1" sched. 40 PVC pipe (they fit perfectly) so that they would not get damaged until I was ready to install or bend them. PVC comes in 10' lengths….you can add couplers for longer lengths if needed. BTW: I used a ¾" conduit bender for my Maxline 90s. Space black clips for Maxline no more than 30" for best looking results.

Hope this helps someone out there…some good still comes from California…

Scott.
