Compressed air systems are greatly impacted by air quality. Having the right air dryer to properly treat the compressed air will improve productivity, system efficiency and product or process quality. Choosing the appropriate air dryer and compressed air filter is very important, along with proper maintenance of the air dryer system after installation, is critical to the systems and instrumentation that depend on clean dry air to operate effectively.
Air simply does not exist without the presence of water in both its liquid or vapor form. No matter the season or geographic location, water is always present. Pressure and temperature determine the amount of moisture that air can hold. Moisture is always present, which consequently leads to a host of issues including, but not limited to, rust and rapid degradation of moving parts in production equipment, corrosion of pipes or connection valves, microbial contaminants in food production, adherence and discoloration in paint applications, and malfunction of pertinent operating equipment due to clogs, scale or rust. Water and moisture are damaging in an industrial environment.
If you've ever experienced any of these issues call Glenn Mechanical to have a proper air drying system installed, or your current system repaired.
