It would be best to have the air drier right after the compressor. That way the rest of the system will stay dry.

I worked in a manufacturing plant that had very large compressors, there were intercoolers that removed water from the compressor stages and aftercooler before the air was sent to the air driers.

You want dry air flowing to storage and into the shop system, that way water won't wash dirt/scale from lines and carry the stuff into your tools.
