Dew point can be a tough measurement in a compressed air system. An accuratemeasurement and better understanding about dew point in compressed air canmean the difference between clean dry air and water running through yourcompressed air system pipes.

This interesting white paper answers the 9 most frequently asked questionsabout dew point in compressed air leading to a better understanding and a betteroperating compressed air system. 80% of compressed air systems use refrigerantdryers, but many lack accurate dew point measurement, leading to unnecessaryoperating costs and lower end product quality.

This paper discusses topics that are important to accurate dew point measurement:

  • Definition and properties of dew point
  • What is pressure dew point?
  • Compressed air quality standards and dew point
  • Telltale signs of a malfunctioning dew point sensor
