Re: OSHA and using PVC for compressed air
Its been stated above, in different terms, but its not always the air inside the pvc that dictates it not be used for pneumatic systems. Its the atmosphere of its intended usage that may decide that. In a shop where people are burning and welding? That should be obvious. Not to mention it would be weakened from the UV light a weld gives off. Pressurize it and hit it with something: BAM!!!! Plastic splinters fly everywhere!
Dont do it!!! Even if you put an enclosure around it, I would say its unsafe.
