Why is worth treating compressed air?

Compressed air is one of the most important industrial energy carriers. Depending on the industry in which it is used, proper treatment must be taken into account. Purifying compressed air means getting rid of contaminants to meet specific technical requirements. As part of the production process, it enables the generation of gas qualities suitable for application and use in production.

Current production processes and technologies require the use of air with strictly specified parameters, while atmospheric air contains water vapour, dust, hydrocarbons and other impurities, whose concentration increases during the compression process and water contained in the air precipitates as condensate.

The various types of contamination adversely affect the quality of the compressed air produced and pose a risk to equipment and end products.
Solid contaminants, pollen, soot and heavy metals, oil and its vapours from compressor lubrication or sucked in from the environment, humid atmospheric air, are compressed in the compressor. This negatively affects pneumatic devices, causing, among others, corrosion, uneven operation, failures and, in the case of direct contact with the manufactured product, huge losses due to reduced quality or destruction of the product.

Compressed air treatment in pneumatic systems is necessary to achieve quality parameters corresponding to the specifics and requirements of the industry. Adapting to these requirements makes it possible to maintain high quality and efficiency of the equipment. Clean compressed air guarantees that the equipment, lines and pneumatic systems will operate faultlessly and for a long time. This reduces maintenance and repair costs.

Appropriately selected compressed air treatment components prevent breakdowns, extend the service life of the entire system, reduce production costs and eliminate the risk of unplanned downtime. They also guarantee a proper product quality, which is a basic requirement in many industries.
