The significance of condensate draining equipment in compressed air systems cannot be overstated. Unfortunately, it’s often an aspect that gets overlooked. Despite investing in high-quality compressed air equipment like compressors, dryers, and filters, the compressed air’s quality becomes meaningless if the condensate isn’t extracted from the system. Accumulated condensate can lead to several issues, including inconsistent dry air supply, causing production problems, rust formation, machinery damage, and winter freeze-ups. Condensate drains are installed on air dryers, drip legs, air receivers, moisture separators, and coalescing filters to eliminate condensate build-up. Ensuring that drains function correctly is critical to the success of the filters and the separators. Electronic, timer-controlled, automatic mechanical, and manual are among the types of condensate drains available from National Filters.
