Here the table cutting ” steel plate. I am making magnet holders for lifting steel plate with two 880 pound magnets to help load the table.
I need to level the table and I will be raising the water level once I level the table.

1/2" Thermal Dynamics 60i

The 2" by 1/4 square tube will allow the magnets to be spread apart 4'.
Then it will go on my forks to make it for simpler loading thick steel plate.

Do you have to use an air dryer , on the compressed air going to the plasma cutter ?

God bless

My compressor has an auto drain on a timer. I made a copper air cooler with drain valves. Then that goes into an air dryer. Then a one-gallon desiccant dryer and a motor guard filter.
3/4" rapid Air connecting it all together.

The dryer the air the better the cut and the longer consumables last.

I may add a air cooler at the compressor after the pump before it enters the compressor. I am going to wait to see if I think it is needed.

How warm is the air , after it leaves the copper coil ? Winter ? Summer

God bless

The compressor is 80 gallons Emax I just got it powered up the other day.
I don’t know the temps yet with this new setup for my plasma table.

Out of the compressor is 3/4 black iron pipe. That goes to the copper.

My 3/4 regulator seems to react to slow. I think I need a better one.

I will be checking the temperatures. It is cold right now but summer heat I am sure I will make lots of water.

I was thinking , if the discharge temperature gets up , you might put a box fan blowing on the copper coil ?

God bless

What I see people doing is adding a transmission cooler after the pump. Set it up to use the compressor fan to draw air through it.
Kind of like this.

I had a auto drain to do this but the one they sent me just did not work.
I am sending it back today.
Does anyone know a good one?

A transmission cooler would be a good idea if it is rated for the pressure .

God bless

I cut some ” plate to build a magnet holder.
This is to help load my table.
This is straight off the table.

That looks like some pretty heavy stuff!
