How to Achieve Clean, Dry, Compressed Air for Food Processing Applications without Sacrificing Energy Efficiency

On Demand until April 26, 2019

Duration:60 minutes


Compressed air quality has a major impact on production in food processing applications and is one of many considerations for food safety. Without clean, dry air, maintenance requirements increase and pneumatic tool life decreases. On the other hand, over-treating compressed air results in unnecessary pressure drop and higher energy costs. Strategies for properly selecting and correctly sizing compressed air dryers, piping, and filters are essential for reducing scrap and optimizing product costs.

Join compressed air experts Werner Rauer, Michael Camber, and Neil Mehltretter as they cover best practices for air treatment, including:

  • Determining air quality needed for an application
  • Understanding how component selection impacts energy efficiency
  • Building an effective and efficient compressed air system
