An air dryer is a system or piece of equipment used to remove moisture from the air, specifically compressed air.
They are critical to the continued operation of downstream equipment. The dew point temperature is the temperature at which the air becomes saturated with water vapor. This is the term used to describe air drying because it is directly related to moisture content.
An air dryer is a necessary component of compressed air systems. Moisture and condensation are unavoidable byproducts of air compression. Water can condense and accumulate within the compressor unit as well as in the downstream equipment and processes. The following are some of the benefits of using air dryers:
- Removes water contamination
- Prevents water buildup
- Abates corrosion
- Prevents freezing
- Improves efficiency of air-powered or pneumatic equipment
- Inhibits microbial growth
Equipment rentals are available on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis, giving you the flexibility to rent the specific tool you require for the day or project.
