The filter seems carefully designed and well made. It is light-weight, but it does not look or feel cheap. I think it will last. The housing is plastic with aluminum internal components. It has a clever, sliding detente to release the bowl. Like other manual drain filter units, there is a pin at the bottom that can be pressed to release air and water while the compressor is pressurized. When the compressor is depressurized, you can remove the bowl.
This filter is cost effective, holds pressure, and works well. I recommend it.
First off... they are small. Don't expect something 12" tall, they are very small in size.
Second... they are NOT supposed to be installed near the compressor itself. For a filter to work properly, the air has to be cool as it enters the filter. If near the compressor, the air is hot and it will not separate the water. MAKE SURE to mount far from the compressor, and near the tool or end of hose.
Third... it's always best to use hard line up to the filter, from the compressor. Air Hose, is not the answer. Make sure to use the proper hard line (pipe) to the filter for it to be most efficient.
When I first received this filter, the o-ring for the canister-to-housing seal was twisted and pinched, causing the filter to leak considerably. With a bit of fuss, I was able to re-seat the o-ring, and get it to hold pressure. You also have to be careful to wiggle the drain valve a bit after draining the water to get it seal tightly. Another gripe is that it doesn't come with a wall-mount bracket, so I built one myself (see attached picture).
Overall, it's functional, extracts moisture from the air line, and is easy to drain. It does leak a tiny bit, causing the air compressor to come on approx 3-4 times per day for a few seconds when not in use, but that's bearable.
Quality seems nice. Nothing bad to say about this product. My blaster works great after adding this.
Much better water removal then the $5 straight line ones you find at home improvement stores. This won't replace a nice high end filter/separator combo but for point of use and the price, not found better.

Does exactly what it says it does. Build quality is pretty decent and I have had zero problems with it leaking. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Jeremy C
This product does not remove hardly any moisture. The bowl will have condensation, but you will have lots of moisture coming through your air tools. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Aaron
Those negative reviews of this product are misguided. Although it has a plastic housing, the threaded part is metal. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Michael D Allison
