Compressed air is the lifeblood of a modern factory, with the compressor room at its heart. And as a major centre of energy consumption and cost, the effi ciency of the compressed air system has a signifi cant bearing on productivity and profi tability as a whole.
Effective purifi cation is a critical element in the compressed air treatment process. Contaminants such as particulates, oil, water and micro-organisms represent a constant threat. And unless they are systematically removed, the quality of air delivery will be severely hampered – regardless of the performance of the compressor itself.
Water in its gaseous form will pass through any fi ltration and unless dealt with, it will remain as a harmful contaminant that can cool and condense into liquid within the compressed air system. Effective drying is therefore an essential part of any compressed air treatment system.
