Why Moisture Management is crucial & how to overcome moisture problems with effective maintenance.
29 July 2021
Nowadays, each industry demands moisture-free, clean compressed air for different applications. Moisture is present in the compressed air in the form of vapor or aerosols, which can hazard the various operations in many industries for ex. It can damage valves, motors & also badly affect the entire system which leads to risky operations in the manufacturing process.
Moisture content in compressed air should be monitored closely to avoid downtime in the manufacturing process & for a better quality product. If this monitoring is not happening regularly, peak performance in operation can be disturbed or you will be in need to replace essential parts in systems.
Why prevention is must for moisture content:
Moisture content can increase risk for compressed air system with operational issues as below:
Failing parts can cause risk of production loss and major downtime of the system
Clogging in pipes can cause operational failure
Loss of lubrication badly affect the wear and tear of moving parts
Increase in rust, corrosion & other damaging contaminants
Leakages in pipes may result in pressure drop & may add excessive moisture & contaminants inline
Bacterial growth can take lead & adversely affect the medical & food sectors, also affect the quality of the final product
How to overcome moisture problem with ‘Effective Maintenance:
Compressed air is costliest energy used in many industries today. Moisture free air is the need of compressed air system for different applications, which can reduce downtime of operation and gives better quality product, Saves Energy as well money.
Some of maintenance tips to increase production performance & reliability as below:
With help of dew point meter, moisture content can be measured in compressed air
To avoid major part replacement or loss in production performance, preventive maintenance can be arranged & rescheduled as per need.
To remove moisture content in compressed air system, air dryers, coalescing filter combination or drain devices are the best tools for better results.
In-line filters gives protection for compressed air system, regular check ups & replacement of filter element increase efficiency of overall compressed air system to remove moisture.
