  • drier for air compressor

    who makes a good drier for my air compressor? I have a Motorgard filter on the plasma but need something on the compressor itself that has a dissecant in it.

    thanks

        If you have a truck junkyard in your area you can put a truck air dryer on it . They are made for lots of air volume and have dessicent cartriges in them.

            Water fights

            Boy do we need an air drier at work. If the compressor has been running for a few minutes and no a lot of air is being used you can take an air blower and shoot a stream of water clear across the shop! We even showed our foreman the other day.

              just a thought, i run a basic velocity change drier with a filter element for general use and then have a refrigerant based drier for the more critical processes that I turn on when needed. I couldn't complain, gave $20 for the drier at an auction and all it needed was a new power cord.

              SSS
