Clean, dry air is critical to the success and efficiency of pneumatic systems, but contamination and condensation are unavoidable when generating compressed air. One source of contaminants is the air being drawn into the compressor. Dirty, wet air is still dirty and wet after compression. In fact, compression generates heat and increases the air’s temperature and capacity to retain moisture. Without filtration and drying, the air will contain all the contaminants of the ambient environment.
