IS YOUR COMPRESSED AIR DRYER WORKING PROPERLY?

Most compressed air refrigerated dryers are rated based on 100° F ambient, 100° F inlet, and 100° psig. This summer we’ve seen a lot of hot days with high humidity which can cause water in your compressed air lines if your dryer is undersized or not working properly.

Call any one of our locations for all your refrigerated dryer needs.

THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN VACUUM TECHNOLOGIES AVAILABLE TODAY

Oil-less rotary vane technology is good for patient vacuum, as well as, waste anesthetic gas. If you need a dual system to evacuate the gas out of operating rooms and use it for patient use, oil-less rotary vane works.

BAD INSTALLATION VS GREAT INSTALLATION

Remember when designing an installation, a minimum of three feet of clearance on each side of any major component is optimal for ventilation and maintenance.

Bad Installation: The discharge of the compressor blows right into the intake of the refrigerated dryer, so the customer put a piece of plywood between the two.  There is not enough space to get at the unit to properly perform maintenance, considering the walls, dryers, plumbing, and the air compressor.bad_Installation_DSCN6435
