Technical Tips for Air Dryers

If this section doesn't quite address what you want to know, feel free to email us or call us at any of our three, convenient locations for assistance. Our expert staff and technicians welcome the opportunity to help you keep your system operating at peak performance.

To keep your air dryer operating efficiently...

  • Check the pressure – dryers remove moisture most efficiently at higher system pressure.
  • Check the temperature – air heats up during the compression process and cools as it moves downstream. The cooler the air before entering the dryer, the more efficiently the dryer operates.
  • Check ambient conditions – high ambient temperatures reduce the efficiency of an air-cooled dryer. The ambient temperatures should be less than 100 F.
