    I have a 5hp 60 gallon air compressor I'm looking for suggestions on a good air dryer / filter to keep moisture out of the air lines.

    Check with the manufacturer, they should be able to tell you.

    I have heard good things about Devilbiss on the internet, I have a friend that has a Devilbiss dryers on his paint booth. I just recently purchased a Devilbiss QC3 130525 off Amazon. It has 4 1/2 stars out of 5 on 61 reviews, so pretty good reviews based on that many reviews. I also purchased a Ingersoll Rand F35341-400-VS Air Filter that I am mounting before the dryer to take some water out before it enters the dryer. It will allow the dryer to last a little longer.

    Also just curious why you posted this in the Western Star forum? It doesn't relate to Western Star in any way.

    We usually just run water traps at each hose connection around the shop. Biggest thing is to place your water traps at least 15 feet from the compressor to allow the moisture time to condense.
