Just getting started in this field and have been reading all that I can to get good information and help as necessary.
I have a Torchmate 3 5' x 10' machine on order with a 120 amp Thermal Dynamics A120 plasma cutter.
It will have digital height control and I will be building my own water table that will handle heavy plate.
The machine will be used for light production and for research and development purposes.
My question is about air dryers. I know that I need one, I just don't know which one to get. I have an 80 Gallon 7.5HP twin cylinder vertical air compressor with cooling radiator. I only use this sparingly for other tools and cleanup so the plasma will have access to the lions share of this compressor.
The A120 torch is rated for 7CFM @ 80 PSI so I should have plenty of air.
I am having a problem getting a straight answer about which way to go with the air dryer setup. my initial thought was to get a Refrigerated type dryer by Hankison or Ingersol Rand, but lots of people have been mentioning desiccant style dryers.
If anyone has some real knowledge based on what I have coming I need the help.
