It is impossible to imagine present-day production and process sequences without compressed air. As modern day industries are increasingly imposing ever high quality demands, it is not just a matter of producing certain quantity of compressed air but also of confirming with defined purity criteria.
The compressed air produced by the compressor contains a certain amount of relative humidity that could still condense.
A compressor that produces 20 m³/1’ at 8 bar, working 8 hours at 75%, taking in air at 20°C and 70% relative humidity, sends about 80 liters of water into the line.
On intake, the saturated compressed air undergoes an initial cooling in the air-air exchanger by means of cold dried air.
The second cooling phase takes place inside the evaporator where the air reaches the preset dew point.
All the condensate separated during the cooling phase is treated and discharged automatically by a system of level sensors. The output compressed air is adequately dried and suitable for the majority of industrial uses.
