Dry compressed air for commercial blasting and coatings plays an important role in the maintenance and preservation of critical public and private infrastructure, such as highway overpasses, bridges, water towers, storage tanks, ships, and pipelines. The steel surfaces of these assets routinely need to be cleaned and coated to prevent corrosion and loss of useful life.
Compressed air is an essential utility in both the surface preparation and coating of steel infrastructure. Compressed air transports abrasive grit that blasts away surface corrosion and old coatings. It’s also used to spray new coatings onto steel surfaces. Clean and dry compressed air is essential in both blasting and coating processes. Contaminants in compressed air, especially water, decrease both contractor productivity and the quality of surface preparation and the adhesion of coatings.
Van Air Systems produces a range of air dryers, filters, and desiccants that are uniquely suited to the needs of commercial coatings contractors. Van Air Systems produces both stationary and portable air drying equipment whose technology is uniquely suited to the blasting and coating industry.
