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.

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

I see all kinds of coils in these pics but no brewing chamber anywhere. Also, you might wanna try using stainless steel for that coil. I have heard that the product from a copper coil can make you go blind.
