Condensate Management is a crucial part in the process of compressing air. The reason for this, is during the processes of air compression, atmospheric air and water vapour and airborne contaminants are drawn into the compressor intake. As compressed cools in the after-cooler, the water and hydrocarbon vapours condense. Condensation also builds up in the piping and air dryers. Condensate management is the process of removing the moisture to prevent damage to the downstream components and processes.
Condensate management is a crucial element of the regular maintenance of your air compressor. It ensures consistency and efficiency during operation and prevents contamination. At Glaston, we offer our clients a wide range of solutions to treat condensate in line with current legislation.
