Air Compressor Dryers

Air Dryer

Excessive water in compressor air, in either the liquid or vapor phase, can cause a variety of operational problems for users of air compressors, you need a air dryer.

Air dryer for air compressor

When you compress air in an air compressor the water vapour in the air turns to water, that water can cause problems, these include corrosion in piping and equipment damage of pneumatic equipment, air motors, valves and is highly recommended for spray painting as it can contaminate the paint. So, to avoid unnecessary maintenance repairs and potential painting failures, it is recommended to purchase a refrigerated air dryer to keep the compressed air dry, clean and suitable for your jobs.

What does an air compressor dryer do?

Compressed air is made of the same air you breathe in and out and it contains humidity or water vapour, as the compressed air cools, water vapour condenses into the tank, pipes, hoses and tools. Water vapour is removed from compressed air to prevent condensation from occurring and to prevent moisture from interfering in sensitive industrial processes and spray painting.

How does air dryer work?

A refrigerated air dryer works by cooling down the air like an air conditioner. The warm wet air enters the dryer, where it is cooled down to about 3 degrees Celsius. All water vapour that was in the air condenses into water and the water is then removed from the compressed air by a water-trap.

Air Dryer for an Air Compressor 

An air dryer for a compressor is used for removing water vapour from compressed air. The air compression concentrates water vapour naturally found in the air.

What temperature is needed to extract the water

The humid air with vapour enters the air compressor dryer, where it is cooled down to about 3 degrees Celsius. The water vapour or humidity that was in the air condenses into water. The water is then removed from the compressor by a water trap.

What is Dew Point?

The measurement for compressed air water content is dew point. Dew point is the temperature where air with water or humidity and moisture begin to condense. It's the point where dew begins to form. Dew point is always stated as a temperature value.
