Home built ai baffle keeps moisture out of air lines
"Next, weld a 3/4-in. fitting (or drill and thread the pipe) on either side at the top of the pipe, facing into the baffle, and one fitting on the bottom. Air coming out of the compressor hits the baffle, travels down one side of the pipe and up the other side. Water drops to the bottom because of its weight and inertia. A simple valve at the bottom lets water drain off as needed. My baffle is positioned on three legs high enough off the ground so a drain pan fits underneath. The baffle mounts right next to the compressor tank so all moisture is taken out before it has a chance to get into any of the air lines. It works for us."
