Other than being a prerequisite under law, consistent pressure testing just makes sense. A pressure vessel can store compressed air at several times that of atmospheric pressure and can be hazardous if they are not maintained properly and tested regularly. By making sure that all air receivers or other vessels under pressure are operating according to SANS347, you are safeguarding a healthier and safer work environment. Read More….

 

Desiccant Compressed Air Dryers

Desiccant Compressed Air DryersA desiccant compressed air dryer makes use of a special material, called desiccant to parch the compressed air. The desiccant is made from a material that, for lack of a better term, ‘likes’ water. The water attaches itself to the surface of the desiccant and from time to time, the desiccant has to be dried, or ‘regenerated’, in order to remove the water again. Read More….
