Compressed Air Dryers

As someone who has helped customers with compressed air problems over many years, I know that there are questions about compressed air dryers, and how to resolve the many water issues created by the compressing of air.

I know how most compressed air dryers work, in principle for some of them, and for others, by having installed an used them. Yet I am not the ultimate authority on compressed air dryers.

IR refrigerant dryer

That's where you come in. :-)

In this forum on compressed air dryers If you would share your experiences with other compressor users, in particular, any issues you have had with dryers, that will sure help other folks.

And, if you are a company that sells and services compressor air dryers, you want to keep an eye on this page for opportunities. Lots of folks are shouting out for help with their water jacket, refrigerant or their dessiccant air dryers, and don't know where to go.

Here is the page where air dryer problems can be posted, perhaps resolved, and where folks in the business can perhaps find a new customer or two.

I will help where I can. I'd appreciate some help from you too.
