To avoid pressure losses, rejects and production downtime, air drying is unavoidable. Corrosion is a permanent danger for every compressed air line, every consumer and its entire production. Therefore: Rely on optimal drying on our part to reduce the danger of moisture to a minimum.
There are several possibilities for drying the compressed air:
The pressure dew point
The pressure dew point (DTP) is a measure for the dryness of the compressed air.
It indicates the temperature up to which the compressed air can be cooled down without the moisture it contains condensing.
