Compressed Air Dryers

Compressed Air Dryers

Dry compressed air is important. In almost every process, clean and dry compressed air will result in lower operating costs. Impurities such as solid particles, water and oil, which are in the air will be deposited on the inner surfaces of pipes fittings and inner components, causing an increase in pressure drop. The result is the undesired loss of performance efficiency. Compressed air dryers are one of the most important parts of the compressed air system. No matter where you are, in the tropics or in the desert, atmospheric air contains some water vapour. When the air or gas cools to the point where it can hold no more water vapour (past the saturation point), it will start to condense into liquid water. This happens at the temperature called the dew point. This dew point is a kind of measure, how much compressed air drying is needed. Types: (High pressure) Heatless desiccant regenerated adsorption dryers, Membrane compressed air dryers, Refrigerant compressed air dryers, Heat regenerated adsorption dryers.
