Our Max Dry and Max Dry XXL function as the ultimate air dryer/regulator and the perfect workstation dryer for the serious home or body shop. Humidity can wreak havoc on your air tools because, as air cools off down the line in your air hose, the humidity in the air condenses and turns into moisture, which creates headaches for you. The Max Dry and Max Dry XXL eliminate the humidity and moisture problem. See how below.
The Max Dry and Max Dry XXL provide a five-stage filtration process in an all-in-one unit. The first stage consists of a self-draining, 5 micron filter, which filters out, down to 40 microns, all liquid water, liquid oil, dust, dirt, rust, and pipe scale.
The second stage features a coalescing filter, which functions differently than a standard particulate filter. Air flows from inside to outside through a coalescing media. Small aerosols come in contact with the fibers in the media and unite with other aerosols caught in the fibers. The aerosols continue to unite and emerge as a droplet on the outside of the media, and gravity allows the droplet to drain away. The second stage filters, down to .03 microns, all oil mist, water mist, and submicronic particles.
The third stage separates our Max Dry and Max Dry XXL from all of the rest! Air enters the third stage and passes through a 70 micron filter, which evenly disperses the air through either a 2-quart (Max Dry, #25310-2) or a 4-quart (Max Dry XXL, #25310-1G) desiccant bed. The desiccant removes humidity from the air to a temperature of -3° F, which eliminates the possibility of any moisture condensing in your air lines and being pumped through your plasma cutter, sander, air ratchet, grinder, or spray gun. The Max Dry comes setup with 2-quarts of desiccant, and the Max Dry XXL comes with 1-gallon (4-quarts) of desiccant.
Best of all, you can reuse the desiccant. The desiccant is dark blue in color when dry and ready to absorb moisture, and then turns a clear, orange-like color after absorbing as much water vapor as possible. When the desiccant turns to a clear, orange-like color, simply pour the desiccant into a baking pan, pop the baking pan into the oven at 325° F, and bake for approximately one hour. The desiccant turns back to blue and provides you, once again, with clean, dry air.
Stage four and stage five consist of a final filtration and a precise regulator. The regulator accurately controls the secondary pressure between 2 and 125 psi, the self-bleed venting feature permits use on dead-end applications, and the inlet and outlet is 1/2" NPT female.
Inlet pressure rated at 250 PSI. Even though the regulator pressure range only adjusts from 5 to 125 PSI, the regulator can handle 250 PSI. Designed to flow 25 SCFM @ 50 PSI; if you run a higher PSI, then the SCFM will go down.
