I bought a HF sandblaster a couple of weeks ago and had moisture related problems while using it. So, after some searching here and elsewhere, I came across some threads discussing just such a cantraption that might cure my ills.


So, without further ado.....


I must add, it works VERY well. .....just thought I'd share.

I kinda figured as much but, gotta give credit where credit's due. I dont know that he created the design but, it was his post that had the design drawn out.
Im seriously considering mounting the separator in my shop fridge to see if it wont make it more efficient during the Summer humidity.

Pile, in the second pic, are you using ice, chilled water or nothing in the trashcan but the coil?

T_Bone right here on this site ran the numbers for me. Here in Western Washington I can just use tap water in the winter, but in the summer I may need to add ice. He’s kind of waiting for me to do some more cutting and can give him more temperature readings at the Motor-guard filter, before he confirms the numbers for summer.

Perhaps you could look into using the vortex phenomena to build your next water taker outer...

ok I am curious what you have here....too lazy to search for the thread. is it just a giant drip leg or is there something in there.

I have a industrial air dryer. Basically just a big bag of dessicant in a tube...Flows 200 cfm so I dont think I will ever max it out, lol
