Effectively Dries Compressed Air in the Air Line

The Desiccant Snake in line compressed air dryer can be used for any point of use application that you want to protect from moisture, oil or dirt and has a capacity of up to 20 scfm. The Desiccant Snake is a must for protecting your air tools and paint projects. Effective with both HVLP and Conventional spray equipment.

Typical compressed air is saturated with 100% relative humidity. That means the compressed air is carrying a lot of moisture vapor when it goes into your paint gun or point of use application. The Desiccant Snake removes moisture vapor down to 1/2% relative humidity.

Filters and traps DO NOT REMOVE ANY MOISTURE VAPOR from the compressed air, they simply remove LIQUID water from the air line. The best refrigerated air dryer on the market removes moisture down to about 26% relative humidity.

The Desiccant Snake gives you air that is about 52 TIMES DRYER than a refrigerated dryer.

This is a great add on for Do-It-Yourself guys who don't have all the expensive equipment to get the moisture out of the air lines. Why take the chance of ruin all your paint work because of moisture in your air lines? Order the DS20 Desiccant Snake by today and avoid all the moisture.
