Refrigerated air dryers are used in industrial plants of all types to remove water from industrial compressed air that is used by tools and pneumatic machinery. A refrigerated air dryer cools the warm incoming air from the compressor, causing water vapors to condense which can be drained out of the compressed air system. They lower the dew point of the air to approximately 38ºF (3ºC). As long as the compressed air temperature does not drop below 38ºF after the air dryer, you should not see any water in your lines. A refrigerated air dryer with proper pre and post filtration will remove approximately 99.5% of all water from your airlines. Clean dry air will increase the life of your production equipment and prevent rust or scaling on the inside of your compressor piping.
