Compressed Air Treatment

Quality of compressed air deteriorates due to the presence of contaminants in the air. To keep the air in your air compressor clean, compressed air treatment is used. The process of compressed air treatment involves dehumidifying and cleaning the air of all contaminants so that you get quality compressed air.

Contaminants in Air Compressors

There are various types of contaminants that enter a compressor and cause harm to it, including dirt, dust, oil, water caused by water vapour, particles of debris and corrosion. The presence of these in an air compressor not only reduces its efficiency but may also damage its parts.

Water Vapour – Water vapour enters into an air compressor from the atmosphere and is compressed with the air. High pressure leads water vapour to condense and turn into liquid. The presence of water in an air compressor is harmful and needs to be removed. For the removal of water and water vapour from an air compressor, sophisticated dryers are used. Since they are designed for the purpose, they efficiently remove all traces of water and water vapour from the compressed air system.

Oil – Along with water vapour, other contaminants such as oil also harm the compressor. Oil remains in a compressor mainly from the lubricator used and smaller quantities of oil also enter the compressor from the air in a gaseous form. The presence of oil in an air compressor is hazardous, as it can impact the quality of the manufactured goods or cause deterioration in the quality of air for breathing.

Solid Particles – Solid particles can also enter an air compressor from the outside or may be created by wear and tear. These particles also result in loss of quality in the output.

Compressed Air Treatment

By removing all contaminants from your compressed air system, you can increase the life of your system, run it at its optimum level, and receive high quality output, uncorrupted by water vapour, dirt, oil, etc. At Maxair, we provide compressed air treatment for air compressors of all makes. We use sophisticated dryers, filters and cleaning agents to remove water vapour, oil, solid particles and dirt from your air compressor system.

You can give a longer life to your system while enjoying a smooth and flawless operation by getting the treatment done from time to time. It is an investment worth its cost, as it keeps your operational expenses low by minimising wear caused by the contaminants. Moreover, the air that you get after the treatment is dry and does not damage the quality of your manufactured goods.

Refrigerant Dryers – Dry Range

The condensation present in a compressed air network is the cause of:

  • increased wear
  • increased corrosion withing the pneumatic eqiupment
  • high running expenses
  • damage to machinery

Faulty or spoilt products, lower quality, increased spare part expenditure and loss of production for repair work are the usual consequences. A well thought out air drying process is therefore essential to the efficient running of a compressed air application.

Compressed Air Threaded Filters

Our comprehensive range of silicone free compressed air and gas filtration products are perfect for use in almost every industrial environment.

By using in-house research and development facilities we create high quality filtration products which satisfy the increasing demands of today’s sophisticated market. Within our standard range of threaded filters we offer 10 models with connections from 1/2″ to 3″ (A60-A2400) offering flow capacities up to 1412 scfm (40m3/min). These models incorporate the unique ‘push on’ filter element, which reduces maintenance time and allows the filter to be located in the most confined places.

These filters are manufactured using die-cast aluminium housings for pressure ratings up to 16 barg (232 psig). They are a proven success due to the high efficiency filter construction enabling a low pressure drop and ensuring low operating costs. All filter bodies are coated with blue polyester finish to eliminate corrosion. Click here to find out more about our ABAC Quality Air Solutions.

Why Maxair?

With over 100 years of experience in the industry, we have conducted compressed air treatment on a wide variety of air compressors and understand the problems you face in its maintenance. Our treatment includes:

  • Efficient drying of water vapour
  • Removal of all dirt and dust
