Maintenance & Repairs

Moisture in my sandblaster?

MK19 asked:

I restore cars and trucks for a hobbie. I have a large Ingersoll compressor with a Detroit 3-53 diesel I use to sandblast.
I primarily use 2 different blasters. One takes 300lbs of black slag and the other approx 150 lbs.
My problem has always been MOISTURE.
It drives me nuts and can really screw up a blasting job and take forever.
I do have water traps at each compressor,but nothing fancy.
i’m thinking of building some sort of air dryer/chiller or something. Does anyone have any good remedies or tips?
The compressor puts out a steady 120 PSI.
