To keep your air dryer operating efficiently...
- Check the pressure – dryers remove moisture most efficiently at higher system pressure.
- Check the temperature – air heats up during the compression process and cools as it moves downstream. The cooler the air before entering the dryer, the more efficiently the dryer operates.
- Check ambient conditions – high ambient temperatures reduce the efficiency of an air-cooled dryer. The ambient temperatures should be less than 100o F.
