The air receiver enables: storage of compressed air in order to meet heavy demands in excess of the capacity of the compressor. balancing of pulsations from the compressor. cooling of the compressed air and collection of residual condensate.
The air dryer reduces the water vapor content of compressed air. Moisture can cause equipment malfunction, product spoilage and corrosion. Two methods are used : absorption and refrigeration.
Filters restrict the passage of oil and water particles conveyed by compressed air within the system.
Drains eliminate condensate (condensate water mixed with other impurities generated by compressed air and sources of pollution).
The separator receives condensate from the drains. It separates oil and water avoiding any polluting discharge.
