Why Treat Compressed Air?

air-compressor24For modern industrial-based machines, compressed air is an essential power source. Factories depend on the reliability and output of their production lines. As a result, it is very important to treat the compressed air that is being used.

Compressed air generally contains a variety of harmful contaminants. This is due to the fact that impurities become more compact when the compressed air is condensed, resulting in condensate. These impurities include dust, degraded oil, gas, pollen and even water. There are many inconveniences and expenses that can happen if compressed air is not treated. Here are some examples:

  • Blocked valves
  • Corroded pipes
  • Rust
  • Scale
  • Spoilage
  • Sludge

These inconveniences result incur costs for repairs and replacement. Fortunately, there are ways of treating compressed air. This includes investing in the right filters and ensuring that all condensates are properly disposed of. Maintaining compressed air and ensuring it is treated results in a cleaner, healthier, and more importantly a cost-effective facility.
