  • fuelmaker dryers/filters?

    Can anyone tell me what type of dryer/filter I should hook up to my fuelmaker? And where can I get one?

    Re: fuelmaker dryers/filters?

    Why do you want a filter? If you are using natural gas from a Utility company then you don't need to filter the gas for a Fuelmaker. I don't know about filtering gas for people that have their own gas wells.

      That's just it, it's my own gas well.

        I dont have my own gas well nor do I own a fuelmaker, however I know Lawrence Factor (http://www.lawrence-factor.com/) does make a relatively small CNG dryer you could attach to the high pressure side of your compressor. (not sure on the cost either) You'll need to download their catalog to find it, but I called them the other day, they knew what they were talking about with CNG though their primary business is Scuba.

        Since the gas is from your own well, you may want to check into making sure it doesnt have any other chemicals in it which would harm the desicant.

          Lawrence Factor is for the high pressure side. If you go to a commercial compressor repair business they can set you up a inlet side dryer you will want to use molecular sieve 3a as the medium.

            Thanks for the help. Does anyone have any recommendations for the dessicant. There are very many types to choose from.

              Like cngmike posted earlier. The "3a" is what you should be after but 4a will also work. If you were on a city gas line though you would want to stay away from the Vaporshell 13x though since this would remove the odorant from the gas (which is not good if get a leak).

                Smak,

                I've met new cng friend in Washington, PA who also has his own natural gas well so I helped him research about dryers and addtl equipment needed before a Fuelmaker could be added.

                Found another PA guy with country farm that has his own ng well and he documented with a terrific website showing progress of the well being drilled, etc. Also, he talks about dryer that he built himself, yes HOMEMADE DRYER, that he made of normal items like pvc plastic pipe, etc. See:
                http://littlemetalshop.com/index.html for general information about his farm.
                Then, see specifics about ng well and dryer at:
                http://littlemetalshop.com/alt-fuel/alt-fuel.html

                Info is very detailed, even including the vendors he used to supply parts used in making the dryer.

                Best of luck to you . . . Go CNG !!!
