so PA had their air dyers on sale last week so I ordered one and it arrived today. im looking at it and it says to mount it 25 feet away from the compressor so the air does not come out too hot? I don't really understand what would be in this thing to make the air hot.It looks like a tube with a ball bearing to drain water out. do I really need to mount it 25 feet away? ive seen other people mount them right by the compressor with only a few feet of hose connecting the two.

Get good dessicant, do not use the PA stuff. It is like road salt and gets into your tools. You should have a particulate filter after the drier, and before any tools.
And yes, the 'mount 25' away' is so the drier sees cool air. Hot air holds moisture better. Cool air will tend to precipitate the water out. Changes of state and all that. Read the big thread we have on the tech.
Also, the dessicant that comes woth the PA dryer will melt if the air is still hot eenough, it will fill the air hose and air tools.
