    I also purchased this filter a third the size of the gold filters and when received found it had only a tablespoon of media in it along with near two tablespoons of activated carbon.  It also had many cigarette filters included that did not fit tight in the filter cylinder so would do little good.  Don't buy it.

    I followed the link to the filter you purchased.biohazardman.

    Allow me to clarify, please

    You are  not referring to the Tuxing Factory filter; but to a smaller version from a different manufacturer,

    I purchased the Tuxing

    It arrived yesterday & I hope to hook up  & test it today.

    So far, so good:

    Very well packaged; and no issues found upon visual inspection

    Credit to airgunfans for digging up those details in a nice table.

    My Coltri filter from Lawrence Factor has type 13x molecular sieve in mesh size 8×12. I can refill it about 7 times from a one pound bottle. Each refill will last about six months. Less than one dollar a month for fresh first quality air drying. The hard part is keeping the unused media dry, I'm using a 30 cal metal ammo can that seals very well. You know, the ones that you take to the mountains and a year later you open it at home and it still has a vacuum holding the lid.

    Gentlemen,

    While my Yong Heng has crashed and burned, piston broke…etc…etc…let me advise against using the tiny cotton filter that came with the unit.

    When my POS Yong Heng compressor failed the first time, I degassed the Carbon Fiber tank and took the valve off and proceed to pour a cup of water out of the tank!

    A cup of water????   This only illustrates the need for proper moisture protection in your filters.  Water inside the pcp air cylinder is going to do some interesting work on your regulator and valve over time.  Granted the Yong Heng POS is inexpensive, but spare no expense to obtain a quality in-line filter to keep moisture out.  Particulate matter cannot get past the rolled cotton filters, or the micro-sieves, but moisture does strange things when heated to 70C and it can get past a LOT of filtration in its gaseous form!!!

    Take care…and don't expect any factory, seller, or importer support when the compressor fails.  Bitter experience!  I'll try to repair it, but I'm no Rocket Surgeon!!!

     

    Bitterly,

    Kindly 'Ol Uncle Hoot

    Hey Uncle Hoot

    Just  as a reference ;with no hidden agenda

    What are the usual humidity levels in your part of Arkansas?

    About how long (hours of compressor use) did it take to get that much water into the cylinder?

    Best regards

    Ed
