Question

can i attach this directly to my plasma cutter one end and the air hose the other?

also, silly question, but do I need to remove the little orange plugs either side of the dessicant tube before connecting to the hose/air-tool. It seems like the material inside the tube could blow through into the air tool

The plug is in the dryer to keep moisture from entering until it is used. The plug would be removed at time of installation.

The life of the dryer is based on the amount of moisture that's in your compressor and also the ambient moisture levels in the work space. In order to increase the life of the dryer use with a compressor that's properly maintained and work in low humidity.
