It’s Time to Perform Refrigerated Air Dryer Maintenance
SHARE THIS POST
Summer is well on its way. In fact, the hot & humid weather is already here. Is your refrigerated air dryer for your compressed air system maintained and ready?
Water is naturally present in the air. The amount of water vapor held in the air is dictated by temperature. Simply put, the warmer the air, the more water it holds. If too much water is to remain in your compressed air system, the price is paid in the form of maintenance costs, pressure drops, equipment failure, and product quality losses. These are just a few reasons why it is critical to perform refrigerated air dryer maintenance before the summer season hits.
Experience the benefits of having one of C.H. Reed’s factory-trained, certified compressed air technicians come to your facility and perform a thorough maintenance analysis of your refrigerated compressed air dryers BEFORE the heat and humidity of summer overcome your system.

- Temperature: Including ambient, inlet, outlet, suction, evaporator, water inlet, and water outlet temperatures.
- Pressures: Including inlet, outlet, suction, and head pressures.
- Inspections: Other inspections of condenser coils, condensate drains, moisture separator filters, pre-filter element & drain, after-filter element & drain, water control valve, water leaks, and refrigerant leaks.
