How do you know what air treatment I need for our plant?

It depends on what type of clean filtration is required for your system and the level of dryness air you need. Example, in humid months you may need to use a dryer so that your end supply air isn’t full of moisture.

Why is it important to check and clean the moisture drains?

It is important because that is how water removed from the cleanup equipment gets out of the system. You will see a build up on these drains. Too much build up can cause your drains to stop working and cause further problems.

On a rotary screw air compressor equipped with an aftercooler, on average how much water does it help remove?

An average it helps remove 65%.
