Types of Compressed Air Dryers
The dryer is an important part of the compressed air system that often gets overlooked. Along with filters, it ensures that the air being used in your final application is clean and free of moisture. Moisture in the air can cause fish-eyes in paint and clogged media blaster nozzles. The two main types of dryers are refrigerated and desiccant. The main difference between these two types is the drying agent inside the machine.
