Avoid high ambient air temperatures and save money !
During the summer period operation costs for compressed air installations unnecessary rise. Due to high ambient temperatures in the compressor room the efficiency of compressors and dryers are decreasing dramatically. At the same time the numbers of technical failures are potentially increasing.
A temperature rise of 10 ° C reduces the compressor efficiency by as much as 3%, and has a negative impact on the service life of the compressor oil, which may lead to unnecessary maintenance. The refrigeration dryer efficiency even drops to 30%!
Most of the failures of refrigeration dryers occur during hot days, the dryer has to cool much harder than usually which increases the change of a breakdown or not reaching its full capacity.
Optimising your compressed air room is the answer. Small changes often deliver great improvements.
