kitty litter

somewhere on the net I read about making a desicant dryer out of an old obsolete 5 gallon propane tank and filling it with kitty litter. I did about $ 100 damage to my plasma cutter tips when moisture hit the hot tips. I have welded one up but haven't put everything together, I plan on first manually draining my 50 gallon air tank. It does also have an auto drain but just to be sure I manually check it first. then run air thru the kitty litter, then thru a motor guard filter then a clear plastic water trap that changes color when loaded with moisture then to the paint filter regulater combo. I have all the parts now, just have to build a roll around cart with all the pieces mounted.
