Air Treatment

Air Treatment

While compressed air offers many benefits, it produces moisture harmful to equipment and the environment. All air contains water vapor. The amount of water held by the air varies with temperature and pressure. The higher the temperature, the more water air can hold. 

That’s why humidity tends to be higher in warmer months than in the winter. When moisture levels are high, it’s essential to use air treatment equipment with your compressor. At Compressed Air Technologies, we offer an extensive line of air treatment equipment manufactured from some of the world’s most trusted brands.

Types of Air Treatment Equipment

While it’s impossible to prevent moisture from entering your air compressor, you can control or even eliminate most of it by using certain types of air treatment equipment. Some common examples of air purification equipment include:

  • Air dryers: Compressed air dryers are filter systems that remove water inherent in compressed air. The four primary air compressor dryer types are refrigerated, desiccant, chemical and membrane air dryers.
  • Condensation filter systems: Air compressor condensate drain systems typically contain oil and water separators for draining potentially harmful condensate, preventing improper filtration and disposal.
  • Mist eliminators: These devices remove contaminants from process air emissions resulting from mist droplets. These contaminants can include machine coolant, oil, chromic acid, sulfuric acid and other mist types.
  • Aftercoolers: An aftercooler is a mechanical heat exchanger that removes moisture and heat from a compressed air stream. It ensures air is dry and cool enough for use in air-operated equipment.

Standard Filters

To complement Quincy compressors, we offer a large selection of air filtration systems designed to work with our products. Standard filters include bulk liquid removal, standard coalescer, fine polishing coalescer, dust and particulate removal,  and vapor / odor removal, all of which feature push-to-fit design, multi-wrap element construction and a 10-year warranty on aluminum or steel housing components.

Quincy high pressure filters are built for heavy-duty use. Their unique design features a coalescer to remove liquid aerosols and an activated carbon absorber to reduce odors and vapors. To accommodate many different potential applications, high pressure air filtration systems are available with pipe sizes ranging from ¼” to 2” in diameter.

Use Quincy mist eliminators to remove oil, particulates and water from compressed air with exceptional efficiency. Our products feature a unique double element design that uses a combination of impaction, interception and Brownian movement to remove 100% of particles 3 microns or larger and 99.5% particles as small as 0.01 micron. Rounding out our selection of air filtration equipment, we also offer high-quality, specially blended borosilicate glass microfiber elements compatible with all major manufacturers’ products.

COMPRESSED AIR DRYERS

Water vapor is water in gaseous form and will pass through water separators and coalescing filters just as easy as the compressed air. The ability of air to hold water vapor is dependent upon its pressure and its temperature The heart of any compressed air treatment solution is a dryer, it’s purpose, to remove water vapour, stop condensation, corrosion and in the case of adsorption dryers, inhibit the growth of micro-organisms.
