How to Get Rid of Contaminants from Air Compressor

Table of Contents

Take action to eliminate microorganisms and avoid regrowth if you find them in your air compressor. Contaminants are kept to a minimum by modern air compressor technology. Several tools will assist in preventing microorganism buildup and removing microorganisms from your air compressor device. Learn what these components do and how you can help them stay in good working order. To remove contaminants, follow the steps outlined below.

Air compressor repairs

Filters should be used and modified on a regular basis – Air compressor repairs

Maintain a fresh supply of filters along with the compressed air system. Your filters can not need to be replaced based on a visual examination. Microorganisms, after all, are impenetrable to the naked eye. Track differential pressure in addition to your filters — a large drop may indicate a problem. Check these gauges often, and change filters if there are any problems.

Filters should also be replaced at fixed times, whether or not they seem to be functioning. Replace filters at least once a year, if not more often, depending on how often you use them.
Reduce the amount of water in the air by using an aftercooler.

Heat is generated by compressing air. Warm temperatures encourage microbial replication, so it’s important to keep your system’s temperature down. An aftercooler, installed after the compressor, will help you achieve this. The condensation that would otherwise pass through the device is trapped.

Filter the mist with a Mist Eliminator

When it comes to eliminating microbial contamination, a mist eliminator with a large tank and a built-in differential pressure gauge make a huge difference. Oil, water, and other contaminants are removed from compressed air using a filter like this one. Although it won’t completely eradicate microbial life, it will reduce the amount of water and oil that microorganisms need to survive and reproduce.

Use an electronic control system with a zero-loss liquid drain

Condensation can collect in the lines of a compressed air device. Since microorganisms need water to live, it’s critical to drain the system of any accumulated condensation. While some air compressors have a manual valve for releasing condensation, this can cause compressed air to escape and be wasted. Internal float drains, which open as water builds up, may become jammed open, allowing air to escape, or jammed shut, preventing water from exiting.

The best alternative is an electrically operated, zero-loss drain. These drains can detect the presence of condensation and open the valve when necessary. Before any compressed air is squandered, the valve closes. Although one of these zero-loss drains is more expensive than manual or internal float drains, they are much more effective.

Condensate should be properly disposed of

Never pour condensate down the drain. It’s classified as hazardous waste due to the possibility of oil and contaminants. Make use of a condensate purification kit. This system separates oil from water so that it can be disposed of as hazardous waste.
