Default DIY Refrigerated Air Dryer

I would like to add an air dryer to my compressor. Plasma cutters need dry air to not go through consumables more often than necessary.
Harbor freight has one but it is $400

I have a Aquarium Chiller could I use this to as a air dryer?
They seem to do similar things.




Any suggestions on how to make this work or if this would work are welcome.
I would love to save $400.

The HF air Dryer is 1/4 Hp my chiller is 1/4 HP also.






Another option would be using this to cool off the air. I had this in my greenhouse but don't use it anymore. It would be a lot cheaper to run.
