    Down load owners manual and parts manual for your plasma cutter.

    You will see in parts manual plastic 90 degree push fitting between copper cooling coil and hose to torch. Cooling coil cools compressed air enough so plastic fitting and hose can withstand pressure with reasonable life.

    This is where I would plumb the air from cooling coil to back mounted coalescing filter then return air to air hose to plasma torch. I would use 1/4" or 3/8" copper tube.

    4T64RD,

    Here is a link to the parts manual for your 250CI.

    http://www.hobartwelders.com/om/part...55b_pt_hob.pdf

    Part # 21 in the diagram is a copper coil, which is intended to cool the air from the compressor.

    IF you find you have a moisture problem, it would be easy to cut into the tubing, attach two appropriate size rubber hoses, lead them out through a hole you drill in the cover, and adapt a coalescing filter to the hoses. The filter can be attached to the outside of the cover, or to a cart your plasma cutter sits on. A rubber grommet in the new hole would be good to protect the hoses.

    if you have your compressor outside i would suggest a small inline vertical tank with a drain valve on it outside, then run your line inside the garage along the ceiling and put in another drop in the line inside the shop.. basically a u-shaped drop inside the shop and put another valve in line there. then put a large trap or dryer like a body shop would use at the end of it...

    then install a motorgard filter on your plasma or cart

    i dont have a motorgard filter on my plasma yet but i plan on it(i have a small trap on my cart). the rest of my system is just as described, i live in western ky and it gets hot and very humid here and i have no problem with moisture in my line..

    Hobart 250i... Trying to avoid problems up front

    I've just ordered a new 250i from Northern Tool, and I want to avoid the problems I've seen others have with moisture in the compressor air lines...

    I live in FL, and the 250i will be living in a garage with no isulation, no eaves... No protection from the weather except for rain and wind and maybe dew... and it gets pretty juicy down here, even during the day.

    Has anyone installed a water trap, or inline dessicant INSIDE or outside the unit? How much fabrication work is involved? Do you have to cut through hard lines? Can I just undo a hose clamp and add some longer hose with a trap or filter in it and hook it back up?

    Should I even bother until there is a problem?

    I've only ever used a plasma cutter a few times, on clean new metal, and I have no experience when it comes to diagnosing problems with them.
Working...
