Moisture Removal Systems

Air Prep Systems

Having dry and high pressure (above 100 psi) compressed air is an essential ingredient in an industrial sandblasting operation. Whether you are blasting in the open or in an enclosed industrial blasting room, an ample supply of dry compressed air will make your job easier, make your sandblasting production more efficient and dramatically reduce downtime and time wastage due to blast abrasive clumping. It has the added advantage of being able to optimize your grit valve or abrasive valve – to reduce abrasive consumption. The best and most economical method of removing moisture from the compressed air stream – is using a air prep system or sandblasting air dryer. These abrasive blasting air dryers have large ports and non-restricted air passages which results in no or minimal pressure loss/pressure drop through the air prep system.

A top priority for corrosion control contractors is knowing how to dry air for sandblasting. It is essential that you remove the moisture from your compressed air for efficient blasting. Moisture can cause your abrasive to clog, slow down your blasting speed and even cause your freshly blasted surface to rust.

Cool, dry air exits the air dryer and is connected to the hose for your blast machine. The result keeps moisture from the blasting surface which minimizes any potential rusting before the protective coating is applied.

Air dryers are used to dry the air between the compressor and the blasting or spraying equipment. Warm, moist air from the compressor enters the air prep dryer and travels into a radiator where the air is cooled. As the temperature drops from warm to cool, it then enters the expansion tank which causes the water to drop to the bottom. Cool, dry air exits the air dryer and is connected to the hose for your blast machine. The result keeps moisture from the blasting surface which minimizes any potential rusting before the protective coating is applied.
