Water Filter Advice

Postby Jfile » Thu Jun 07, 2018 11:13 am

I'm getting a new table in a few weeks and was looking for advice on a good water filter. I have an automatic purge valve on the bottom of my compressor and I have a small inexpensive 2 stage filter just a few feet after the air leaves my compressor. Those seem to do a pretty good job but there will be about 25 foot of line from that point until it gets to the plasma cutter and I feel like I should have additional filtering at that point. What would you guys recommend? Thanks in advance for any assistance.

What you want is really an air dryer, many here use the refringent type or the desiccant type and other use a series of tubing and fans to cool the air.
These help to have the humidity in the air drop out and return back to a drain point.
Do a search for air dryer here and you can what is used.
