Compressor Filter And Dryer Units

I have a $250.00 gift card from Summit. I need a new filter dryer unit for my Quincy shop compressor and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for one from Summit only. Just because I have the gift card.

I was thinking of the unit below but would like your opinions or is there a better one that I should get that I'm missing. Let me know. Thanks

Those are a good unit.. What I do for your consideration is to install a air water separator upstream from the dessicant unit to give a 2 stage setup. Works better for me than just one. In addition I have one of the toilet paper kind mounted on my plasma cart as the plasma really does not like moisture in the lines.

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

I bought a air dryer from Horrible Fright bout 10 or so years 110 VOLT AC. It is a refrigerated air dryer.

I installed it next to the compressor and my moisture was gone. It has an automatic condensate and moisture trap that automatically empties. It removes 99% of the moisture and what is left will be picked up by the 2 stage filter at each air outlet station.

Last I checked HF still sells them. I think that was the best bang for the buck. I think I gave 300 or so for it new and the price has gone up some but still the only real way to control moisture.

Follow up on this.. HF has them still the same exact one as min e and still one hell of a price check it out.
