refrigerated air dryer on timer

Postby rikduk » Wed Oct 03, 2018 8:02 am

Hi!
I just bought a used screw compressor, and with it came a seperate refrigerated air dryer. I've hooked up the dryer on my current air setup for now,
but it is a non cycling dryer (great lakes GRF-75) and runs continuously.
Is it a bad thing to run it on a timer, say off at the end of the workshift,
and on 30 minutes before?

Thanks

Richard

I think it would work fine to turn it off when you're not using air. We shut ours off after we are finished cutting.
