    Iam having a compressor with the capacity of 145 CFM.

    I am Having two Air Dryers can the capacities as follows, 90 CFM and 78 CFM.

    How do I need to connect them for best operation? Is there a good technical solution? Or this type of fixing is technically not valid?

    Please help.

    Thanks,

    Asitha: The driers should be connect in parallel. Understand that beyond their rated flow rate there will have excessive pressure loss. Ideally they should be connected down stream of major line branch so that the total anticipated air through that section of line will be less than the rated flow of the dryer.
