Van Air Bosses Around Moisture

April 2014 PaintSquare News  

A new point-of-use compressed-air dryer is designed to provide simple, effective, affordable service for paint booths, blast cabinets and other light industrial applications.

The Moisture Boss by Van Air Systems has a flow capacity up to 35 CFM and a maximum working pressure of 200 PSIG. The unit offers both low initial cost and low operating cost, the manufacturer says.

The system uses Dry-O-Lite desiccant, which the company says "lasts longer and costs less than any other dessicant." The unit operates "for months and even years before needing new desiccant," the manufacturer says.
