    It would be interesting to have a side by side test to measure moisture removal from the same compressor setup.

    Yes, would be great. Trying to do searches.

    “30cal”It would be interesting to have a side by side test to measure moisture removal from the same compressor setup.

    Yes, it would be great, however with so many possible variables  – with the end result trying to capture water vapor which either system failed to remove during operation.  Don’t get me wrong, it would be a good test/experiment, but challenging to do properly.  :<))

    On another note, why can’t I get my reply after a quote to set the text separately outside the quote box?

    Because you are typing inside the blue “quote” box as I am here…….
     

     

    or typing into another “quote” box as I am here

     I think Sharroff’s review was excellent and the pictures added a lot of information alone

     A long term test would be nice but from reading the post one is someone I could build at home easily with a section of airtube ( corrected rated for safety) and one is much better engineered – but maybe I could come close to that one with just a bit more effort and if time is free??? – .

    Yes Sharroff’s review did add a lot to the info out there on the Alpha. I have never been able to find photos of the inside. Thanks again Sharroff! The Alpha does seem to be designed to be a proper moisture filter for use with PCP airguns and their particular pumping equipment needs. Like how it holds pressure after you disconnect the gun thus saving time the next time you use it especially with the slow Shoebox compressor. Linsfreak with the size of these two filters I can see it taking 10 to 20 minutes just to fill them to 3,000 psi from 0 with my Shoebox Max before any air actually starts going into your tank. Also the fact that the Diablo doesn’t have valves means that it is open to the air and will absorb moisture from wherever it is stored. Of course you can always plug the openings with something.  Just something else to think about.

    Linsfreak:  Ordered what the air dryer, if so how much was Joe’s air dryer?  I’m about to order a Omega SC from someone, and was going to get a Diablo dryer as well, but now don’t know.  I will go with Joe if he sells the Omega, if not maybe just the dryer and some fittings.

    i have been using a Diablo for some time now and not really had any problems
    i googled Molecular Sieve and it looks very much the same as what is supposedly in the Diablo
    just some beads of similar looking stuff, which can be purchased and put in the Diablo if needed
    does anybody know more detailed information ?

    Just received my diablo but I took a look at it and it looked good. Hooked it up no problems with that. Set it all up and ran it. Good to go.

    KEEPING IT….PLUS ALL THE OTHER FILTERS ON THERE. ALL GOOD.

    Did you get the brass fitting?   

    If so, does it connect to your shoebox?
