Compressed air contains inherent impurities that can impact the end application. Some common contaminants of compressed air are water, dirt, small wear particles, bacteria, and sometimes degraded oil. These impurities can get mixed to form an acidic sludge that can cause wear and tear of the end-application air-powered tools, machinery, valves, orifices and electro-pneumatic controls like relays. The compressed air must be dry and free of impurities to ensure high reliability and energy savings.
The wide range of pneumatic downstream accessories from ELGi ensures that application-specific air quality standards as per ISO 8573 are adhered to. ELGi offers downstream and condensate management solutions called AIRMATE systems. The energy conservation systems from ELGi are called as ELGi CONSERVE.
Water condensates as vapour and precipitates when atmospheric air cools down after the compression process. This water comes from the atmospheric air. Under average conditions, a compressor with a capacity of 3 m3/min at 7.5 bar will generate approximately 40 litres of water per day. This condensate should be removed from the compressed air system to prevent corrosion and damage to transmission piping and end-user machines. Hence, Compressed air drying is an essential part of the air treatment process.
Compressed air can also contain water, dirt, wear particles, bacteria, and degraded oil. These impurities mix to form an abrasive sludge, which is often acidic and accelerates the wear and tear of tools, pneumatic machinery, block valves, and orifices. This results in costly air leaks and high maintenance. It can also corrode pipes and bring the production process to a halt.
Clean and dry compressed air ensures the reliable functioning of the compressed air systems and also provides maximum efficiency and savings. Refrigeration dryers can help in drying the compressed air. ELGi Airmate Refrigerant Air Dryers ensure the longer life of compressed air systems by efficiently removing the condensate and contaminants.
Compressed air is not pure. The compressed air contains inherent impurities that are detrimental to the end application. Some common contaminants of compressed air are water, dirt, small wear particles, bacteria and sometimes even degraded lubricating oil. All these impurities mix and often form an acidic sludge that might increase the wear and tear of end applications like pneumatic tools, machineries, valves orifices and electro-pneumatic controls like relays. For increased reliability and energy savings, compressed air must be totally clean and dry.
We offer a wide range of pneumatic downstream accessories that ensures application specific air quality norms are met as per the ISO 8573 standards. The air treatment downstream & condensate management solutions offered by ELGi are called AIRMATE systems and energy conservation systems are classified as ELGi CONSERVE.
