No one was more surprised than me.


Come to think of it, the little self draining dealey does stick open and bleed a little once in a while, but not really that often or that much

I use enough air that it beat the snot out of a 60 gall CH compressor, and when I replaced that with a 'real' 5 horse 80 gallon, it will get that fairly warm. I don't really spray or sand blast tho.

I am right now in the process of building an compressed air intercooler out of an A/C condenser..I am running it so the pipes lay horizontal and will drain and the filter water seperator is installed after the air goes through the condenser..this is all about 20" feet downstream from the compressor and fed with 1/2 inch black iron pipe..

Has anyone ever used an "Aquachek" filter?
They're made by Wix (Affinia Corp) and they sound like a pretty good solution ... particularly if installed after getting most of the free water removed by conventional means.

I just bought anEagle 18.5 CFM compressor the other day, and plan to design some kind of copper-pipe cooling loop as described in this thread, and then install one of these "aquachek" filters immediately following that on the main air line.

I plan to run a rubber hose from the wall outlets to a FRL (Filter/Regulator/Lubricator -- piture attached) mounted on my toolbox, with a coiled (?) hose running to the tool in use. (NOT a paint gun ... LOL)
