Have you done any coating before?
Do not believe all that is on the internet.

Are you having trouble with water or just know you will?
There are lots of ways to control moisture and all depends on how bad a problem you have?
There are moisture traps and auto drains and dryers that can be added into the air lines.
A lot depends on how you have your air lines ran in your shop and also what type you are using?

To properly do coating you also need to media blast your parts and media blasting takes a lot of CFM and can make a lot of moisture and it can shut you down ASAP.

There are drawings on how to setup shop air lines on the net and also lots of info on how and what to use to help control moisture so that is where you need to start and with any luck you will find the info that will help you.

For us to even try and help then we need a lot more info on what type of setup you have now. Just connecting flexible airlines to your compressor will not work well at all. They are only good for air tools as long as you keep them oiled but will not work well for coating and feeding air to your gun. You need what we call hard lines so you can add what you need in them to help control any moisture.
