The WD gives an alarm as soon as a 3cl water level is detected. This alarm message is visible, audible and can be routed to a control room thanks to the potential-free contact. The ball valve at the outlet is meant to release water after an alarm situation and is closed during normal operation.
Compressed air will always be 100% saturated with water when it leaves a compressor. But also the outlet temperature has an important influence on the water load downstream the compressor. In order to minimize the load – and thus size – of the downstream refrigeration or adsorption dryer, it is therefore recommended to install a highly efficient aftercooler between compressor and dryer.
The saturated, hot air at the outlet of the compressor will cool down along the cold piping network. This causes condensate to form that can result in corrosion, bad product quality or process malfunctioning. Having free water at the inlet also impacts the lifetime and performance of filters and dryers.
Pneumatech offers a patented way to turn oily condensate into harmless water that can be drained away, while capturing the oil to be easily disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner. The extensive OWS range from Pneumatech uses patented technology to separate all kinds of compressed air condensate. The multi-stage separation process, using both buoyant oleophilic filters and activated carbon ensures exceptional performance, lower disposal costs and trouble free operation.
