air filtration system

I need some help designing an air filtration systemfor a mobile rig, please note that most mentioned equipment I do not own and this is just an idea. Ths is my plan, I want to start doing mobile welding to th extent of repair of things such as farm equipment and cutom fabrication, i may do minor sheetmetal repair on cars and I also plan on plastic welding. i will have a miller trailblazer 302, a cutting/welding torch, an ingorsol rand horizontal gas powered air compressor, a thermal dynamics cutmaster 102, a spoolgun, and various electric grinder, drills, a mag base drill, and various air tools, impacts die grinder air hammers, DAs, air ratchets, and a small sand blaster. i have been told that moisture in air needs 20 feet of line to condesate in before being filtered out, so here is my plan put a small filter at the compessor out let such as part number 20472 from then I would run a 25 foot hose from the compressor to a desicant like part number 51510 also from eastwood, next the would be a second hose longenough to reach whatever needs air at the end of this hose would be a DeVelbissdessicant snake and moisture detector part number 25237 from eastwood. Then at the plasma cutter there would be a small in line dessicant like part number 2894 from , the question am i on the right track is there any thing i should change?

Why not look for a used refrigeration air dryer. Thay are listed on ebay, just find one that fits your cfm needs. It will provide dry air and all you will need is a filter for dirt. Tom F.
