If you have compressed air in your facility, you may also need a compressed air dryer. How do you know if you need this device and how does it work?
The purpose of an air dryer is to suppress the dew point of your compressed air by removing water from it. You can also get information about refrigerated air dryers through the web.

Compressed air can contain moisture which, under suitable conditions, can reach the dew point and condense into a hazardous liquid.
The standard types of dryers we use with compressed air systems include:
Refrigerated Dryers –The most common type of air dryer that you will see in industrial compressed air systems are refrigeration dryers. They work by a simple mechanism in which they use one or more heat exchangers to cool the hot compressed air, condense most of the water, and remove the water through an automatic drainage separator.
If you are looking for a dryer that is affordable and doesn't work in extreme conditions where you need unusually high drying capacities, this is often the best and most economical option.
Specialty Gas and Liquids Dryer – If your business deals with exotic or hazardous gases or liquids that need dryings, such as gasoline, butane, hydrogen, or landfill, specialized dryers are available that can safely remove moisture from these products.
Membrane Dryer – Membrane dryers are highly efficient dryers that dry and suppress dew points when air enters the system.
