as long as the PSI rating is correct, you should be fine.

it will trap most of the water, but I think that water will still form inside of the tanks due to condensation, so make sure your bottom port is accessible to allow you to drain the water out periodically

or stick on a very small solenoid and switch to drain.... :cool:

they have automatic drains for big compressors, I thought that would be a cool setup, but I cant find them in 12VDC :(

The prob with a lot of those automatic drains is that they are set to dump at around 10psi.
A small, 1/8" solenoid on a manual switch would probably be better.
Ebay usually has a few tiny solenoids around...also Princess Auto (in Ontario at least) got a mss of 1/16" port 12vdc solenoids vavles in *shrug*

Oh...and also try to get a glass and metal water trap as well if you are running and engine driven comp. Especailly a "Sanden" compressor.

The oil that is spayed into the air stream may not get along all that well with the water trap componets if it's all plastic.
"Yorks" don't have the same oil sprayer as the Sandens...so you don't have to owrry about that as much.

But since you're running a regular compressor....you don't really have to worry about it. Just the PSI rating of the trap. :biggrin:
