Shop Tip - Air Dryer

Unread postAuthor: velocity3x » Tue Dec 18, 2012 8:45 am

If you have a problem with wet, sloppy air in your shop air lines, this is an inexpensive solution I've used for used for 12 years. It WORKS very well! I purchase a Bendix AD9 air dryer at a "Big Rig" truck wrecking yard.....$25.00. Installed immediately after the air compressor, it removes 95% of moisture from the air system. It has only one moving part (spool valve with one o-ring). Unlike expensive refrigerated type air dryers....A "Big Rig" air dryer costs $0 to operate and it's cheap at wrecking yards. And unlike junk "spin" type air filters from Harbor freight, etc., this actually works!

Wow I never though of using that type.

and you are installing right after compressor to avoid moisture in the tank also correct? What pressure are these types typically rated at?

Governer cut out for the compressor is 135psi max....safety valve vents @ 150psi.
