What is Dew-point?
The Dew-point of air is the point where the moisture starts to form drops of water. When the air in the sky is reaching the dew-point, it is starting to rain. The higher the pressure, the less water the air can carry. The colder the air, the less water it can carry. This is why the dew-point drops when the pressure increase and or the temperature decrease.
Refrigerated air dryers from 750 liters/min up to 6500 liter/min ex-stock. Larger ex overseas. Dew point 4°C under pressure. Automatic drain pre and manual drain after filters.
Screw compressors have no valves or other mechanical forces to cause imbalances unlike piston compressors.
Airpower keeps universal spare parts for compressors. Pressure switches, non return valves and safety valves are universal to all compressors. Bottom entry filters/ regulators, electric motors and starters can be used for many makes of compressors.
