Increase Your Compressed Air Quality

Air dryers are essential for air compressors. They keep compressors free of moisture, and prevent condensate and rust problems from occurring. Air compressors produce a lot of water. While this water can be drained, the moisture isn't removed entirely from the system.

A compressed air dryer is a equipment designed to separate water vapor or moisture (de-humidify) from industrial process air. In the typical system, a compressor draws in humid air and compresses it, which raises the air temperature and then cooling the air condensing water vapor out of the unit.

Dryers are used in food, pharmaceutical, agricultural, sugar, pulp and paper, textiles, wood, metallurgical, metal fabrication, and automotive industries. The difference between the various types of dryers is based on the mechanism used to remove moisture as well as the many different sizes and capacities.

Information you should keep in mind 💭

Having an air dryer is a best way toward increasing the quality and efficiency of your compressed air. To get the most out of your investment, read these air dryer tips:

Improve the quality of your intake air: The less polluted your intake air, the less your air compressor and air dryer will have to work to purify it. Contaminants can be liquid, solid or gas, and can enter the air before it’s processed by the machine, or inside the machine itself. There are two steps to minimize this contamination — promoting a clean workspace and introducing a filtration system to your compressed air cycle. If your industry requires heavily regulated air, you might also consider a lubrication-free compression system.

Use a compressed air storage system: Use a compressed air storage tank to store dried, filtered air once it has been compressed. This will help prevent additional moisture from re-entering the air, saving you time, energy and valuable resources.

Schedule preventive maintenance for your air compressor: An efficient air drying system means little if your compressed air machine is not working correctly. Schedule regular preventive maintenance checkups for your compressor and air dryer systems to avoid production setbacks. You should also create and implement a monitoring system that allows you to stay up-to-date on the status of your equipment and the quality of the air being produced. Taking preventive measures like these can alert you to possible concerns and have them adjusted before they turn into costly, more time-consuming repairs later.
