A significant problem compressed air systems face is the accumulation of unwanted moisture generated during the compression process. Water vapor precipitated within the compressed system can cause damage to its components resulting in costly downtime. Also, most industrial processes that use compressed air cannot manufacture high-quality products if the process air is not properly dried.
Every air compression process generates some amount of heat referred to as the heat-of-compression and the temperature values vary differ between compressor types. An air compressor aftercooler device is a device that acts as a heat exchanger removing the heat of compression from a stream of compressed air.
The intent in this action is to reduce the temperature of the air stream. Taking the system temperature below the dew point temperature of compressed air allows suspended water vapor to condense and be eliminated. This results in a drier, high-quality air more suitable to your industrial applications.
Different variants of water-cooled aftercoolers are available for compressed air drying processes. A common water-cooled aftercooler is the shell and tube version. This heat exchanger type is composed of a network of coiled tubes within a shell casing. While heated compressed air is passed through the tubes in one direction, cool water is channeled through the surrounding shell eliminating the heat from the process. As cooling is achieved, suspended water is precipitated into the aftercooler coils and is removed by an attached moisture separation unit.
Compressed air with a high content of vaporized water is not ideal for most industrial processes as they mostly require dried air. Apart from their non-suitability for industrial manufacturing, compressed air with high levels of moisture will damage compressor components by causing corrosion and channel blockages.
Compressed air testing helps ensure the quality of compressed industrial air meets minimum international standards. At present, the ISO 8573 compressed air guidelines are employed in several countries globally including India, the US, and the UK. These guidelines involve the use of microscopy, lasers, oil and water vapor sampling techniques to standardize industrial compressed air manufacturing processes.
At NiGen we prioritize the delivery of the best quality compressed air supplies to all our clients. In addition to our industrial air compressors, we also provide air compressor aftercoolers, air dryers, industrial nitrogen generators, and industrial generators to help optimize every aspect of your production process.
People began using compressed air as far back as the 1500s with an invention called bellows. These small, handheld devices blew air into fires, creating hotter temperatures. Inventors soon found ways to make the first air compressor more efficient, creating new instruments to perform the same task. At the start, air compressors were limited in their function.
While the traditional way to get a compressor has been purchasing it outright (or through low-interest financing programs), there has recently been a shift in the way that compressed air providers approach compressed air equipment purchases. This includes providing leasing options, where you can lease the equipment for a defined period and have the option to purchase at the end of the lease, as well as the newer and more flexible approach of buying air only.
We offer compressed air in a variety of purities and concentrations. See the chart below and download the safety data sheet for more information on buying compressed air tanks and cylinders from Praxair. Summary:
Compressed air contains water, oil and particles, therefore it is a good idea to filter your air before it is used. The quality of the compressed air depends on how and where to use compressed air. Ultrafilter offers all types of filtration.
Ultrafilter Scandinavia offers a wide selection of filtration products for compressed air, sterile air/steam, liquids, gas & water treatment. We have stock in Denmark and from here we distribute all of our products to Scandinavia and the Baltic countries. Ultrafilter Scandinavia is a part of the Ultrafilter group. Production is in Germany and we have several subsidiaries in Europe and the United States.
When buying used compressed air equipment, it is important to work with a reputable dealer who knows how to evaluate and recondition used compressors and dryers. You also need to make sure they stand by their equipment. Some questions to ask:
We accept used air compressed and air dryers for cash or as a trade-in on your new compressed air equipment purchase. Trade-in value will be determined by the age/runtime hours and working condition of the equipment. Contact us for more information.

We are currently going to manufacture the golf carts for delivery in the USA in late 2023 and early 2024.
KAirFree is compressed air as a service. It gives you guaranteed compressed air with no hidden costs. Instead of buying a compressor, you pay for the air you use. KAirFree includes all maintenance and any repairs that might come up.
The TeleDart compressed air cylinder can be refilled as often as necessary. Reflling is conveniently available in diving shops, at your local fire department, with your own air pressure bottle, with a compressor, or with an airpump.
Do any of you own an air compressor which ideally would be light and portable to blow out IT equipment free of dust bunnies, I just occurred to me the amount spent on compressed air cans, would it be more cost effective in the long run
As RodIT suggested we got metro DataVac pro as well. it really noisy but really powerful and efficient. the only problem is that you need a power outlet nearby. So compressed air for places where you cannot find outlet and datavac for office if you dont mind loud noise.
I've had the older blue \"Special Edition\" for years, handy as hell and impressively powerful. I've tried using vacuums of various sorts, but I find them far less effective. This thing is almost as powerful as compressed air. When I'm in an environment where I can't move the computer outside, I will use a shop vac hose stuck near the case to catch the dust and that works pretty well, but even a vacuum as powerful as a shop vac is ineffective at properly cleaning a computer by itself.
From global corporations to intelligent trades businesses; from food production to aerospace: Our customers benefit day in, day out, from the quality, safety, and cost efficiency that a Kaeser compressed air supply brings.
SAU offers the benefits of improved cost transparency. Instead of a composite calculation, end-users can rely on a fixed price per cubic foot of compressed air, which is contractually agreed upon. The basic price set for the entire term of the contract covers system and operating costs, as well as consumption of a base volume of compressed air. Should consumption exceed that amount, a specified surplus air charge is applied.
Sigma Air Utility represents a highly attractive option for compressed air supply when existing equipment is at the end of its depreciation cycle and/or rapid energy efficiency improvements are desired. It is not unusual for end-users to achieve long-term savings of 30 percent or more.
The primary reason for using a compressed air filter is to remove contamination and improve air quality. Parker's design philosophy of air quality, energy efficiency has led to products that provide highest air quality, lowest power consumption, lowest operational differential pressure, lowest CO2 emissions and lowest total cost of ownership. Since the introduction of the first Parker OIL-X range, Parker has continued to develop both the compressed air filter and the standards governing compressed air quality.
High-precision industrial processes must be free of contaminants. Just as when you put a paper filter in your percolator to obtain a clean, perfectly filtered coffee, your pneumatic equipment (valve or cylinder) needs a compressed air filter to work with air that is free of particles, oil aerosols and other lubricants.
They increase the coalescence of liquids. Coalescence is the process by which fine drops of liquids fuse together to form large drops under the effect of a pressure drop. As the droplets grow, they fall into a moisture trap, ridding the air of any liquid contaminants. This means the compressed air obtained is drier and cleaner.
Compressed-air is your best option to choose when it comes to cleaning round as well as rectangular shafts and air ducts. The compressed-air cleaning equipment is available in different sets. Round and oval ducts can be effectively cleaned by the backward rotating helicopter nozzles. The air whips are being used in square and round air ducts, where they loosen even firmly bond dust. The used compressor should be capable of a permanent output capacity of at least 70 psi at a minimum volume flow of 14.7 CFM.
