AIR-COOLED AFTER COOLER WITH MOISTURE SEPARATOR

Atmospheric air entering a compressor contains water vapor. The compression process concentrates these water vapors. Once the air travels downstream, the vapor cools and condenses into liquid. If not removed, it contaminates the entire compressed air system and causes corrosion. This corrosion in turn leads to air leaks, pressure drop and scale formation. Products and processes are ruined, resulting in lost production time.
Air-Cooled After Coolers provide economical cooling by utilizing ambient air to cool the hot compressed air from an air compressor. Discharge air from an air compressor is generally 180°F – 350°F, depending on the type of compressor. With a properly sized after cooler, as much as 60% of the water in compressed air can be removed.
