Moisture traps filter moisture from the air provided by the air source before
the air reaches the airbrush. Although not having a moisture trap does not
prevent you from using an airbrush system, they are invaluable in areas of
high humidity and prevent your art from receiving water droplets with the
pigment. Install moisture traps on air hoses between the airbrush and air
source. The air hose may have to be severed and recapped with fittings
contained on each end of the moisture trap. Periodically inspect moisture
traps for rust or debris.
Figure 6-11 illustrates the position of the moisture trap.
