    I've een putting on hurricane dryers, quite economical, and no canisters or filters to change out. Your fitting is 1/4" NPT so what the best method is to get a 1/2" hurricane version and step it down to 1/4".

    Removes around 99% of the water.

        Just an oversized water separator simular in design to the factory ones, air shoots through a micron filter and blasts in a tornado huricane fashion the moisture laden air against the sides of the bowl, and drains out the bottom. I use the manual drain ones and open it up very slightly. A 1/2" version runs in at less than 60 bucks.

          Where are you mounting this air dryer??? right off of compressor or at the plasma???

          Would it help if I ran hard line to the area where I will do most of my cutting then use a short peice of rubber line, or doesnt it matter??

            Have to use it as close to the plasma as possible. This is because your airlines also gather moisture, especially copper and black pipe.

              Well I plan on putting my new compressor in the corner of the garage. I then want to run my 220v and an airline over to a post in the center of my garage where I will have my welding table.

              Should I run a solid line (copper) over to a point on the post, then put in an air dryer??? I suppose a solid line is better???
