Air Treatment

Proper air treatment is vital because the amount of moisture in the air is dictated by air temperature.

The warmer the air, the more moisture it can hold. Conversely, the colder the air, the less moisture it can hold.


Compressing air causes its temperature to rise. This means it can hold more moisture. As the air cools, it can no longer hold that moisture and becomes saturated.

To keep machinery in good repair, and to maintain productivity, this moisture needs to be removed from the air distribution piping and take off points.

There are 4 main types of dryer for dealing with moisture-saturated air:

  • Refrigerant dryers: These remove water and provide general purpose air, +3°C pressure dewpoint to class 4 ISO8573.1
  • Desiccant air dryers:These remove water and provide high quality air, -20 to -70°C pressure dew-point to class 1,2 or 3 ISO8573.1
  • Filtration: These remove particles and odours, general purpose to high quality sterile air range, oil carryover.
  • Breathing air: Air quality is controlled by legal requirements (BS EN12021) and should be checked at least once every 3 months.
