Air dryers and filters are essential components used in conjunction with air compressors for various reasons.
Firstly, air dryers help remove moisture from the compressed air, ensuring that it is clean and dry. This is important because moisture can cause corrosion, damage equipment, and compromise the quality of the end product. Additionally, air dryers prevent the formation of ice within the compressed air system, especially in colder environments, which can lead to blockages and reduced efficiency.
Filters, on the other hand, are employed to remove contaminants such as dirt, oil, and particles from the compressed air. These contaminants can enter the system through the intake air and, if not filtered out, can clog equipment, cause malfunctions, and affect the overall quality of the compressed air.
