Why Do Compressed Air Systems Need Drying For Automobile Industry

Compressed air applied in automobile industry

From manufacture to maintenance, compressed air plays an important role in the automobile industry. Air-operated drills, nutsetters, grinders, buffers, pneumatic hammers, and impact wrenches are among the hand tools commonly used in both factory and garage.

Servicing the automobile provides many more applications for compressed air such as painting. It is used in equipment for removing and inflating tires, in air lifts, air jacks, pneumatic grease guns, and air jets, in blowing out clogged gasoline lines, and in cleaning out car interiors. It is also used in air guns for spraying paint or antirust coatings and for oiling springs. Compressed air is also employed in retreading and re-grooving tires, sandblasting and cleaning pistons, and sandblasting spark plugs. Agitating solutions for cleaning metal parts is still another use.

Moisture is always present

All atmospheric air contains some water vapor, which will begin to condense into liquid water in the compressed air or gas system when the air or gas cools past the saturation point, i.e., the point where it can hold no more water vapor. The temperature at which this happens is known as the dew point.This dew point becomes all important in determining how much compressed air drying is needed.

Moisture is damaging

Moisture in compressed air used in amanufacturing plant causes problems in the operation of pneumatic systems, solenoid valves and air motors and can adversely affect the process or product being manufactured. For many years, problems from moisture in compressed air lines were simply tolerated as unavoidable. Moisture:

  • Causes rust and increased wear of moving parts in production equipment as it washes away lubrication;
  • Can adversely affect the color, adherence, and finish of paint applied by compressed air;
  • Can jeopardize process industries where many operations are dependent upon the proper functioning of pneumatic controls.The malfunctioning of these controls due to rust, scale, and clogged orifices can result in damage to product or in costly shutdowns;
  • Can freeze in control lines in cold weather, which may cause faulty operation of controls;
  • Causescorrosion of air or gas operated instruments, giving false readings, interrupting or shutting down plant processes.
