Compressed air, commonly referred to as the fourth utility, is used in a variety of industrial applications. Air simply does not exist without the presence of water in both its liquid or vapor form. No matter the season or geographic location, water is always present. Pressure and temperature determine the amount of moisture that air can hold.
Compressed air is air kept under pressure that is greater than atmospheric pressure (14.7 psia). When large volumes of air are heated by the compression process its ability to hold moisture increases, and unless the air is cooled, there is no way to control the amount of water vapor present. In simple terms, compressed air dryers remove moisture from compressed air by cooling the air to a temperature close to its saturation level that causes the moisture to condense out of the air.

Moisture is always present, which consequently leads to a host of issues including, but not limited to, rust and rapid degradation of moving parts in production equipment, corrosion of pipes or connection valves, microbial contaminants in food production, adherence and discoloration in paint applications, and malfunction of pertinent operating equipment due to clogs, scale or rust. Water and moisture are damaging in an industrial environment. If you’ve ever experienced any of these issues (we have!), you will agree that battling moisture is constant, costly and time consuming. So rather than repairing, replacing or correcting the issues that affect your operations, equipment, or product, tackle the issue at the source and remove moisture from compressed air with a dryer.
