All Air Preparation
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.
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.
