Air Compressor II
Water droplets will form when air is saturated with water vapor. This condensation point, known as the dew point, varies with pressure and temperature. The higher the temperature at a given pressure, the more moisture can be contained in the air before it is saturated. When air moves from the compressor along a pipeline, its temperature drops and water forms in the line. The greatest cooling occurs when the air is expanded or used in doing expansive work. If the dew point is not lowered by drying prior to this time, damage may occur in the form of corrosion, spray from equipment exhaust, rusting, and moistening of working parts.
