I need to make some changes to my air lines @ the compressor to add an 
intercooler between the compressor & tank. 

I have a 60 gallon 11 CFM compressor outside that feeds a 1â??x12â?? drip leg 
w/valve that then feeds 1â?? copper pipe in the ceiling. It runs up hill for 
40â?? across the shop. Each of my air outlets is fed from the main line. I 
drain the drip leg every few days & the compressor daily when working. I need 
to add an automatic drain one of these days. 

When I am doing a bunch of blasting the air @ the cabinet is about 110°. A 
local separator takes care of the rest of the moisture.

Unless this is a large, complex system, I think the simplest and effective way 
to deal with moisture in the piping is iron piping with drip stems with ball 
valves on the ends and a moisture separator near each air outlet, and each 
outlet needs to be stubbed off of a vertical  pipe section. I just google air 
system pipe layout and that many layouts, most using this basic idea.
