A dirty dryer condenser is the number one cause of compressor failures in a refrigerated air dryer. If the condenser is not able to dissipate the heat properly, it will cause high head pressure in the refrigeration circuit, resulting in compressor shutdowns and eventually failures. This hinders the ability of the air dryer to properly remove moisture from the compressed air.
If the dryer is equipped with an internal filter element, it is recommended it be replaced at least yearly. Clean the condenser monthly and be sure the moisture drain is operating properly. Some dryers have rebuild kits available for these automatic/electronic drains. Proper periodic maintenance increases equipment longevity.
