Compressed air dryers are one of the most common types of air dryers. They are simple in design, require little maintenance, and are relatively inexpensive.
Without additional cooling, the air is about 80 degrees Celsius or more! Check the temperature of the compressed air coming out of your compressor. You can also get information about refrigerated air dryer via the web.

When purchasing a cold compressed air dryer, there are a few important things to keep in mind:
Maximum pressure. The maximum pressure of the dryer must be equal to or higher than your compressor pressure.
Maximum flow. The maximum airflow that can flow through your dryer should be higher than your compressor can deliver. Choosing an air dryer that is too small will cause a large pressure drop in your dryer (due to airflow problems).
Inlet temperature. The air dryer has a maximum inlet temperature. If this temperature is exceeded, you may damage parts of the dryer or the dryer does not have sufficient capacity to reach the desired dew point.
Maximum outside temperature (room temperature). Did you put the dryer in a hot room? There is a chance that the dryer could overheat and shut down. Find out what the maximum temperature (in summer) is in your compressor room and buy a dryer that can handle it.
