    My cheap air filter/oil lubricator are not very good to dry air (specialy in hot weather) so Im looking for in-line water trap. There a lot on ebay/amazon for £3-£4 but I dont know if they are any good.
    New Norgren Olympian Plus units on the way so hopefully they will do better job but mini filter still wanted.
    What you guys using to dry air? what mini filters?
     
  2. I haven't found any of them very effective. I use a breathing air filter set now.

    Following with interest. I've just got my compressor set up for my plasma cutter and have fitted an ebay inline filter, but keen to find ways to improve it!

    Desiccant filter probably the easiest way

    I got a dessicant in line and dry as a bone... Also put a precooler on as that can make a big difference to.

    I use a PCL dropout with our laser cutter and have no problems with it.

    +1 for PCL dropout

    I got two of these - both with screw on auto drain traps at the bottom of the filters.

    Super bit of kit - both our Hydrovanes have them fitted.
