Don't let moisture (water) in your air supply rob you of your productivity. Behind insufficient air supply, moisture is the second largest enemy to blasting productivity. "Wet" air causes flash rusting, clogs blast pots with damp abrasives, damages control valves and reduces productivity. Remember – moisture is a problem in even seemingly dry conditions! Blasting operations that simply add a Schmidt® high volume aftercooler moisture separator have documented increased production of 12 to 15%.
Schmidt® AirPrep™ systems are designed and manufactured to help maintain and promote productivity in your blasting system and feature negligible pressure drop.
Designed for high efficiency removal of moisture, resulting in cool, clean and dry compressed air for use in abrasive blasting equipment. If your blasting operation or jobsite is in a region where there is not a big difference in the daily high and low temperatures, an aftercooler may be sufficient to handle the moisture in your blast system. Note: sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) applications most often require the additional drying capabilities of an air dryer for best performance.
Designed for maximum performance to handle high humidity environments or offer a higher level of moisture removal for critical applications. If your blast operation or jobsite is in a region that experiences wide differences in the daily high and low temperatures, an air dryer is a must to handle the moisture generated in these environments. An air dryer is usually recommended for sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) applications.
Helps reduce the amount of moisture in the blasting system, for smoother flow of abrasives and reduced contamination of controls. Suitable for drier, more arid environments where the level of performance offered by an AirPrep Aftercooler or Air Dryer may not be needed.
