Compressed Air Gas Treatment

Portable Rental Air Dryer for Short-Term Compressed Air Requirements

Portable Rental Air Dryer for Short-Term Compressed Air Requirements - Chemical Plant - Parker Hannifin Gas Separation and Filtration DivisionCompressed air is a major source of energy used in a wide variety of applications across many industries. A plant compressed air system can be costly to operate. Optimizing productivity while reducing operating costs is the common goal shared by almost any manufacturing plant across the globe. Proper compressed air treatment will protect equipment and avoid production downtime and maintenance. In almost all applications throughout a plant, the use of clean, dry compressed air will result in lower operating costs.

The importance of compressed air treatment

Compressed air is generated on-site by pulling in ambient air and compressing it. Ambient air may contain water vapor, microorganisms, dirt, oil vapor, liquid oil, oil aerosols, rust pipe scale and more. Without an integrated compressed air dryer, these contaminants will deteriorate the equipment resulting in costly maintenance and affect the quality of the product being manufactured. Proper compressed air treatment is essential to protect equipment, ensure reliability in manufacturing and production processes, and prevent poor product quality.

Compressed air is often required for a short-lived application lasting only a few weeks. In this case, it doesn't make financial sense for a company to invest in treatment equipment, such as a compressed air dryer, for temporary use.
