The Best Strategy for Eliminating Water Vapor in Compressed Air

Water in compressed air systems is one of the leading causes of failure. Pneumatic systems, regardless of their purpose, are not designed to operate with water present. How Temperature Affects Water Vapor Air is comprised primarily of oxygen and nitrogen with trace amounts of other ambient gases. Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures tells us that water vapor is present in an inverse partial pressure to the amount of oxygen and nitrogen present in any given sample of air. In normal atmospheric...
