I bought a cheap filter and a regulator at Home Depot (not the mini filter).  I 
no idea how it works (looks like a filter of some type in the bowl) but it 
pulls a LOT 
of water out of the air line when I was continiously using air (sand blasting 
wire brushing) for hours at a time...  It seems that I'm forever having to 
drain the
thing.  Maybe not the best, but it a lot better than before (i.e. none)...
