Competitive manufacturers focus on engineering excellence, productivity, quality, and reducing operating costs. A clean, dry, and reliable compressed air supply is critical to maintain efficient and cost effective production.


Understanding the sources of compressed air contamination is a key factor in planning an efficient compressed air system. In a typical compressed air system, there are several major contaminants that must be removed or reduced for a safe and cost effective production facility. These contaminants come from different sources:


  • Atmospheric Air — which can contain water vapor, dirt, oil vapor, and micro-organisms

  • Air Compressor — in addition to the contaminants in the atmosphere, oil lubricated compressors will contribute small amounts of oil from the compression process. This oil will be in the form of liquid oil, oil aerosols, and oil vapor. After the compression stage, the after-cooler will cool the air, condensing water vapor and introducing it into the compressed air as liquid water and water aerosols.

  • Compressed air storage devices and distribution piping — as the air leaves the compressor, it contains many different contaminants. The air receiver and piping system that distributes the compressed air around the facility can store large amounts of contaminants. Additionally, they cool the warm, saturated, compressed air which causes condensation on a large scale adding more liquid water into the system and promoting corrosion and microbiological growth in the form of rust and pipe scale.
