Gas and Air Drying Accessories
Van Air Systems designs easy to use, simple, and extremely effective dryers for both gas and compressed air. Though some set-ups may need additional accessories depending on the application and output of dryer gas or air. Here are three common accessories that pair with our dryers:
- Oil Water separator: a cost effective solution to remove lubricating oils from condensate streams. No electricity required, can be run for 24 hour continuous operation, and has low maintenance costs.
- Air-cooled Aftercoolers: Since compressed air being discharged from an air compressor is hot and loaded with vapor, an after-cooler reduces that temperature causing a substantial amount of the entrained moisture to condense.
- Dew Point Monitors: Handy devices designed to verify the performance of air dryers by analysing the water vapor content of compressed air. Van Air Systems offers three dew point monitors depending on the application.
Benefits of Using Van Air Systems’ Accessories
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…
In Van Air Systems AC series air-cooled aftercoolers, hot compressed air is introduced to the core as ambient air is drawn across it, leaving the exiting air cooler. AC series after-coolers are normally sized for a 15°F (or less) approach to ambient air. For example, a compressor discharges 250°F air and the aftercooler is located in 80°F ambient conditions. With a 15°F approach, the air exiting the aftercooler will be 95°F and saturated, and the moisture created by cooling from 250°F to 95°F will condense.
Van Air Systems’ Oil Water Separator series is a cost effective solution to remove lubricating oils from condensate streams. This heavy duty unit is designed to simultaneously process different types of poly glycol oils. These oil water separators are ready for 24 hour continous operation. Van Air Systems’ oil water separators can remove lubricants down to a level in compliance with most regulations, and are designed to operate in most ambient conditions year-round.
