Question: I want to remove water from my compressed air system, how do I do this?
Answer:  There are several products that will remove moisture from a compressed air system. Listed below are a couple of more common options that are used.
    1. Inline desiccant Dryers will remove the moisture from your air lines. When these are used it is recommended to use a coalescer filter prior to these to prevent any oil from ruining the desiccant material. These dryers will give your system a -40F dewpoint and drop slowly depending on your air quality. We carry disposable in-line and for larger scfm capacities the dessicant can be regenerated extenally in a oven by being heated. (see manual for instructions)
    2. Refrigerated Air Dryers will remove any moisture from you compressed air system and produce a +35F dewpoint. These use refrigeration to cool the air. When these are used the inlet temperature should considered if you can use a standard or a high temperature dryer would need to be used. When this product is choosen it is recommended to use a particulate filter in front of the refrigerated air dryer to product the dryer.
    3. Regenerative Air Dryers will remove any moisture and product a -40F dewpoint. These products use desiccant material to adsorb the moisture. Every couple of minutes depending on model selected, will purge a small percentage of your compressed air to the atmosphere, allowing the moisture created to be purged out of your system. These have very little maintenance, and are very reliable. When these dryers are used it is strongly recommended to have a coalescing filter before the dryer to prevent oil enter and ruining the desiccant in the dryer, and a particulate filter after the dryer to prevent any dust created from the desiccant entering your equipment downstream of the dryer.
