If you pass all the compressed air through a air drier then it matters not if you tank is hot or cold. The tank will stay "cold" only so long till the hot air from the compressor heats it up. If the water condense's and drops out in the tank so much the better, after that into a dryer and water trap, and you have dry air.
I've worked with large air systems for over thirty years and we always removed moisture before sending it out to the system, we had no tanks.
