Excessive moisture in compressed air lines corrodes pneumatic equipment and system piping, normally the most expensive component of an air system. Moisture also contaminates sensitive instruments and processes, leading to preventable downtime. Van Air Systems dew point monitors verify the performance of air dryers by analyzing the water vapor content of compressed air. In the event of an elevated moisture level, Van Air Systems dew point monitors quickly alert plant personnel to minimize maintenance expenses.
Van Air Systems offers three dew point monitors, suiting a wide range of applications. All of these units directly measure moisture or dew point at line pressure to reduce errors when converting from atmospheric values to pressure values. Van Air dew point monitors are housed in NEMA 4 fiber glass or steel enclosures and arrive in convenient-to-install packages, requiring only power supply and air sample connections.
All Van Air Systems dew point monitors have a sensor element designed for installation directly within the air line. As a result, the need for complex sample systems, including extensive piping, manifolds, flow and pressure regulators, is eliminated.
