divilbiss and sharpe filter/reg combo the same thing?
the 2 models are

sha6720 vs devhar602

I am looking for a good filter/dryer system

was also thinking the sharpe 6760 if other thing its good quality.

on a side note I noticed some of shape gear is blue vs light blue in there products is this a way to tell usa/china stuff?

A trap/filter is an important piece of equipment for your shop, especially if your planning on doing any painting...if your not you can get away with one of the single filtering systems. The 3 stage desiccant system would be beneficial if you plan on plugging a paint gun into your air line and sure wouldn't hurt your regular air tools...if budget isn't an issue that may be a route you want to go. Sharpe does make some quality filtering systems. The Devilbus "Finishline" system is fine but as their "Finishline" paint guns, may be considered to be entry level.

The finishline filter is great for airtools but wouldn't paint with it. A 3 stage system is more ideal for painting. Nevermind the Astro.

X2 on the Astro as well.

I made a post on garage journal talking about this aswell

my lines are at 3/4" and was thinking to get the sharpe 707f

and beside that to install the sharpe 707c which is the coalescer$File/6930.jpg

both of which are 3/4"

would this be a nice set up? price would be about $425

69 widetrack 02-22-2013 02:21 PM

The set up would probably be OK...the price??? I'd shop around a bit.


jss 02-22-2013 04:36 PM

the price does jump from 1/2 set up to 3/4 i can get
1/2" version with reg for 259. but i was worried the smaller sizing

69 widetrack 02-22-2013 04:47 PM

I'm going to save you $165...get a few reducing couplers from 3/4 to 1/2 inch, you won't notice the 1/4 inch reduction for the filters, most automotive shops are 1/2 inch line.

Hope this helps.


jss 02-23-2013 01:03 PM

i think your right just saying the 3/4 filter option since down the road if i up my compressor and sandblaster it will give me one less thing to have to redo

69 widetrack 02-23-2013 01:46 PM

The 1/2 inch will work fine...the only time it wouldn't would be if you hire a bunch of employees and the're all using air at the same time...but by then you'd probably need a bigger compressor...not to worry.


jss 02-23-2013 02:15 PM

really? thats good to know makes me feel better.

I'd still like to hear an answer to the original question, as I too have wondered if the Devilbiss/Sharpe/Astro filters are the same or not. With the exception of the shutoff valve on the outlet, the parts look IDENTICAL. My money says that all three are made from Chinesium.

69 widetrack 02-23-2013 04:25 PM

It wouldn't surprise me one bit if they where all the same...on the outside anyway...the inside...well that would surprise me a bit. I've seen Astro tools that break by taking them out of the box...some look like CP...that's why I wouldn't buy Astro.
