Condensate Management

Condensation is the moisture that drops out of an air flow as it cools. The condensation in a compressed air system is a constant threat to cause expensive problems. The following are a few examples:

Moisture washes lubrication from air tools and production equipment causing downtime and maintenance.
An inconsistent supply of dry air causes production quality problems.

The situation is further complicated by climate and seasonal weather changes. This is because the amount of condensation generated will change according to changes in the temperature and the relative humidity of the inlet air.

The typical compressed air system is designed to remove condensation at strategic locations. This means there are drains at the after cooler separator, receiver tank, air dryer, in-line filters and at drain points in the piping.
