Why Do Compressed Air Systems Need Drying?

A careful examination of a facility's compressed air system will likely reveal several opportunities to improve the performance and cost of the system.One often misunderstood opportunity is the need for clean dry air. Drying technology is always advancing, however the basic concepts of how moisture can be removed from compressed air still remains a misunderstood concept.

Moisture in compressed air used in a manufacturing plant causes problems in the operation of pneumatic systems, solenoid valves and air motors and can adversely affect the process or product being manufactured. For many years, problems from moisture in compressed air lines were simply tolerated as unavoidable.

This presentation will outline how to select the correct dryer and the costs associated with creating air that is too dry. Air, which may be considered dry for one application, may not be dry enough for another. Dryness is relative, can be expensive and is misunderstood.
