Do I need a refrigerated unit or will the above unit suffice?

Forgot one tidbit. I also have and started out with that same 3 stage brand you have listed. I still had moisture showing up on my CAMaster trap until I put the dryer in.

Surprisingly, yes. We have not had any issue with it since purchasing it last July. It is on if the shop lights are on so to speak. I would not have thought it would have lasted this long.

I haven't killed the check valve yet, but I don't use the compressor that frequently. If I do kill a valve, I'll shrink the aftercooler coil to a single U bend with a drop, and then plumb the coil in after the tank instead. I do notice that long vent time!

Edit: I think if it dies, I'll see if I can move the unloader valve to the top of the cooling coil. Might be easier.

I'm just curious if you have had to replace your check valve.

We got a Quincy dryer with our compressor, but when it came time to service it we found out it needed European refrigerant and foriegn parts that were going to cost $$$$$$. So now we have an Ingersol.

Default Compressor & Dryer

Thanks,

I have a quote for a Champion VRV5-8 5hp 80 gallon 2 stage compressor (19.1 cfm @125psi) and Great Lakes GRF-20-116 20cfm refrigerated dryer, regulator and gauges.

What do you think?

Ron

How about this instead of or add with a refrigerated air dryer.
My Compressor After-cooler Install

Sorry if I bring you to another site. Also there's tons of topics of
keeping moisture in the lines. Not 100% all but greatly reduced.
Depends how far you take it.

Thanks but the $850 for this dryer is cheap insurance and designed to work with this compressor. While yours looks very nice it's not something that I personally would want to trust.
