Should I add an Air Dryer to my compressor system?

An aftercooler or air dryer reduces the amount of water suspended in the air. Hot air holds more water, so the ideal system for the maximum removal of water is a refrigerated air dryer. For example, a 10 hp compressor with air entering the system at 75 degrees and 75% relative humidity produces water at the rate of 6.3 gallons per day. A refrigerated air dryer would remove a total of 6 gallons of water (leaving only .3 gallons in the system). An air-cooled aftercooler with a separator would remove 4.3 gallons per day.

I need to control the dew point and contaminants from my compressed air system. What do i need to purchase?

Air compressor system filters are available in a full range of micron dimensions. Based on your application, ATCORP can recommend the correct filter as part of our custom air compressor solution. Assuming a common dewpoint of 35 degrees, a refrigerated air dryer should be acceptable for most applications. However, if you are shooting waterborne paints, you will need a much lower dew point to achieve the 5-10% relative humidity required. Oudoor applications subject to freezing temperatures should deploy a desiccant dryer to achieve dewpoints as low as -40 degrees F.

I am considering an air compressor system for my high volume auto repair shop. do I need to include an air dryer or can i add it later?

Air dryers are not required but are highly recommended to ensure that your air compressor continues running at peak performance with the least investment in maintenance. If you use your air compressor system for auto body paint, you could experience paint spotting.

Hidden costs of water in the system includes rusted parts that can cause sluggish air compressor performance serving your pneumatic tools, tools that do not last as long as they could in a dried air environment and air lines not working at maximum air output. Waterborne painting applications should deploy a desiccant or membrane type dryer to achieve dewpoints as low as -40 degrees F.

The temperature of my air compressor is running higher than the manufacturer recommended operating temperature. how do i correct this over-heating air compressor problem?

Low oil levels can cause your air compressor to be running hot. Check the oil level as your first step and add OEM recommended oil. If the over-heating is not corrected by adding oil, then rule out ambient temperature that is too high; a restriction in the system’s air or water flow; or ventilation around the compressors working area.

I have an air dryer on my air compressor system but i am still getting excessive water in the compressed air line. how do i correct this?

Check automatic drain trap mechanisms to ensure they are working properly. Manually drain the air receiver. (Consider adding an Automatic Tank Drain for convenience). Additionally, implementing a moisture separator to the air line will reduce moisture in the future. If draining does not resolve your issue, have your air dryer serviced. If it is no longer serviceable, replace the air dryer.

My air pressure has dropped when i use my pneumatic tools. how do i pinpoint the problem?

Follow this checklist to rule out problems:

  • Clogged or worn filter elements
  • Holes in distribution piping
  • Leaks at the connection, valves or lines
  • Excess system pressure drop
  • Hose diameter too small for the flow required
  • Quick-disconnect bore too small for the flow required

How do i calculate the complete cost of a compressor?

Calculate up to 20% operating cost for inspection, maintenance and repair. Include a 65% cost for energy and demand to operate the system. For example: At $.06 per kW/hr, the estimated cost of compressed air is $.02 per 100 cfm. A 10 HP air compressor delivering 35 cfm=$0.007/minute, $0.42/hour, $10.08/day, $302.40/month or $3,628.80/year.

For Indian scenarios, please consider USD to INR conversion rates and cost of energy in your selective state.

What does HVAC stand for?

Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning.

What regular maintenance do heating and air conditioning systems need?

The most important part of HVAC maintenance aspect is maintaining unrestricted air flows. Dust, dirt, and debris are an HVAC system’s worst enemies. Whether it’s an indoor or outdoor unit, you must keep all filters clean and heat exchangers and coils free of restrictions.

We recommend that your heating and cooling system be checked and serviced twice a year; ideally a spring and autumn tune-up. Also we recommend that you change your filter regularly, depending on the type of filter you have. This alone can eliminate many of the most common problems that need fixing and can significantly reduce the likelihood of a serious breakdown. ATCORP Service Partner Plan is your assurance that these maintenance needs are met regularly and that any potential problems are promptly identified.

For service and repair needs, please raise a ticket on customer support desk.

Why do I need to change my filter regularly?

Regular filter replacement helps your heating and cooling system operate at peak levels and improves indoor air quality. It is important to change filters regularly to ensure proper air flow and to keep it free from dust, allergens and germs.

Depending on the type of filter you have, you may require weekly or monthly filter replacements.

What is meant by cooling tower performance?

A cooling tower is designed to produce certain results based on specific conditions, with variables due to conditions presented as curves. Standard conditions for a cooling tower are 95 degree Hot Water Temperature (HWT), 85 degree Cold Water Temperature (CWT), a 78 degree Wet Bulb Temperature (WBT), a 10 degree Range (HWT—CBT) and 7 degree approach (CWT—WBT). If a cooling tower is designed to be able to flow 3,000 gallons per minute at standard conditions and is flowing 3,000 gpm, then it is said to be performing at 100%. However, varying conditions will change what the cooling tower is able to produce, with the largest factor being the wet bulb temperature.

An Example: A process is delivering 105 degree HWT to the cooling tower. The cooling tower is producing 90 degree CWT with an 80 degree WBT (with a 15 degree Range and 10 degree Approach). If the tower’s curves say it should deliver 3,000 gpm but it is measured at those conditions and is only producing 2,700 gpm; the tower is performing at 90%. If conditions change again, the tower’s flow rate is measured at 3,300 gpm, it performing at 110%.
