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.

Van Air Systems recommends the Moisture Boss compressed-air dryer for shop painting, blast cabinets, body shops and other light industrial applications.

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.

In addition to painting and blasting, Van Air recommends the unit for auto-body and collision operations and for woodworking, tire and light assembly shops.

The $500 unit comes with an initial fill of Dry-O-Lite, an internal after-filter, mounting bracket and fasteners. The Moisture Boss will begin shipping in May, the company says.


Van Air says the unit's desiccant needn't be replaced "for months and even years."

Founded in 1944, Lake City, PA-based Van Air Systems designs and manufactures compressed-air dryers and products for the treatment of compressed air and natural gas, including desiccants, particulate and coalescing filters, automatic condensate drains and after-coolers.
