AZSteve beat me do it. But if you want extra protection then the Diablo Dry Air System would be the route I would take.
I know Joe always brings up air channeling :) But I’m pretty sure there is going to be channel on any unit with 4500PSI
going through it.

I’m pretty new to PCP’a just got my first one a Day State a couple of weeks ago. I also ordered a Tiger Shark from Joe
the closest dive shop to me only goes to about 3500PSI, there is a paintball place that does 4500 but I’m a little leery
of using them. I almost got a super charger  from Jim but after doing the math I decided on having Sheldon’s rebuild a 
Kidde unit used in the military. The Kidde does 2.4 a minute if you translate that to an hour it would be 132CFH which 
which would what about 5 times faster than the Omega’s. I ordered the smallest one I could get so I could use a
110V 30A line. The only problem is it won’t be ready till some time in August.  Almost went with the new DayState
model but would have taken almost the same amount of time to special order it.  According to Mr. Sheldon no extra
moisture filter would be needed just filter repack kits and Linde 13x drying agent. 

Anyway if anyone can recommend a safe place to get air in SE MI I’m all ears.
