Air Compressors Plus offers several solutions for dealing with moisture, which is an inherent problem to air compressors.
On a basic level, the reason moisture is created in an air compressor is as follows: The hot air produced from the compressor pump, enters a much colder tank, which causes the hot air to reach it's dew point, and then condenses into droplets. This leaves moisture in your tank, which can be passed into the air line system, then out to your tools and equipment.
There are many ways we can help in dealing with the moisture issue; The easiest way to produce dry air, is by installing a refrigerated dryer between your compressor and the equipment using the air.
The refrigerated air dryer works by cooling the air from your compressor tank, to the point that all water vapor remaining can be eliminated through a water trap, leaving dry air from the refrigerated dryer to go to air piping or equipment. There is very little maintenance that needs to be done to refrigerated air dryers, making them a great choice for almost any application requiring dry air.
Air Compressors Plus offers SMC brand refrigerated air dryers, and they can be sized appropriately based on the CFM output of your compressor. These dryers come in various power supplies and port sizes, and can be customized for any customer's personal needs. SMC offers a 1 year warranty, but will extend the warranty to 2 years, as long as the customer installs a coalescing filter between the dryer and compressor.
All refrigerated air dryer manufacturers recommend having a coalescing filter, which removes oil from the air, prior to it entering the dryer. It is also highly recommended that you have a pre-filter as well to keep the dryer free of as many contaminants as possible.
