Air Dryer Tips

Basic Air Dryer Tips


Along with preventative maintenance you should follow these guidelines for keeping 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 temperature should be less than 100° F.
