Dry Air Systems has been supplying ﬁlters to the Plasma cutting market through Welding Distributors since 1990. The owner and founder Ken Schwerin has been in the welding industries starting in 1978 as a Welding Equipment repair specialist with Cunningham Equipment in Philadelphia. His career didn’t end there, working as District Manager for Thermal Dynamics (New York Market) in the late eighties he was part of the greatest development in the industry and History of Plasma. The ﬁrst plasma to use compressed air to develop the arc. He then moved on to L-Tec where he sold the Linde line of Plasma Cutting equipment. In the early ninety’s he had the opportunity to work for Hypertherm after L- Tec was purchased by ESAB (note: He is the only one in the ﬁeld of Plasma Cutting to have worked for three of the major Manufactures of Plasma Cutting and welding equipment).
The Hypertherm experience broadened his Mechanize cutting experience with more advancement in the inverter developments of handheld cutting units.
It was during this period that Ken started to look at the ﬁlters that he had been recommending for use with the plasma systems. The size of most air ﬁlters was large and with the advent of inverter power sources, the idea of portability was becoming important. Working with an Engineer, Ken had an Aluminum ﬁlter made to his speciﬁcation, this product was good but costly. The next product was made of ABS, a good easy to manufacture ﬁlter but it was not worker proof and Ken wanted no possibility for injury. Working with an injection molding company the 9200 series ﬁlter was born. A nylon glass reinforced small ﬁlter made for the rough and tumble industrial market. The small ﬁlter is exactly what the market needed.
Dry Air Systems was born and the sale of ﬁlters to the Welding Industry through distribution was started. Today we sell to Welding Distributors and several OEM manufacturers.
