If you have water in your compressed air system, then you've come to the right place. This happens almost everywhere but can have serious consequences for your compressed air system and the quality of the end product. In the following section you can read how water can get into your compressed air system.
When the vent is compressed, condensation forms. The following factors determine the amount of water:
The compressed air contains less water when the pressure is higher and the easier it is to dry. Think of a sponge that is soaked with water; the more it is squeezed, the less water it contains.
An air dryer helps to minimise excess moisture in your compressed air system that can lead to serious damage and unforeseen downtime. We can provide you with the most suitable air dryer based on the needs of your compressor here at Atlas Copco. We have a range of air dryers in dessicant or refrigerant.
