Condensate management is the removal of condensates from the air compressor system. This includes, dust, bacteria, oil, water, and even gases. Some ways you can help manage the condensates in your air compressor include:

  • Periodically send out samples of removed oil for testing and analysis to be sure your unit’s oil level is in the legal range
  • Automatic separators can help remove all water vapor moisture and dispose of it on-site while recycling oil contaminants for reuse or disposing of them safely
  • Waste management companies are the ‘classic’ method of removing collected condensates from the air compressor site
