Downstream Equipment Performance Evaluation
Pneumatic components experience wear and corrosion due to moisture, leading to increased consumption of compressed air and decreased energy efficiency.
As wear and corrosion progress, there is a need for component repair or replacement, resulting in higher operational costs. Therefore, it is essential to calculate the necessary dryer capacity and install an appropriately sized dryer.
Filters are indispensable for effectively eliminating impurities from compressed air, as it plays a vital role in numerous industrial chemical processes.
Compressed air finds application in texturizing products, drying sterilized equipment, shaping containers, conveying ingredients through pipelines, and forming protective barriers around products stored in tanks. However, despite its importance, compressed air can also serve as a primary source of contamination.
It is crucial to maintain the dryness and freedom from oil in compressed air to ensure product quality and safety. Typically, achieving this goal necessitates a sequence or “train” of filters and dryers. While each facility’s requirements may vary, the appropriate treatment often involves pre-filtration in the utility room, along with point-of-use filtration before compressed air comes into contact with a product.
