Starting with the basics: Air purification 101

When compressed air heats up it becomes "dirty", resulting in the system omitting too much moisture or oil into the air which can cause havoc to your equipment and air quality-particularly in lab and hospital environments that require high quality "medical air or for electronic assembly environments that requiring dry "shop air". This is true for numerous industrial applications as well.

As such, it's important to remove the moisture and contaminates to ensure an optimal air quality environment. This involves equipment such as compressed air dryers, filtration, condensate management systems and air quality monitors.

Compressor World BOSTON carries all the air purification products you'll need from leading manufacturers around the globe.


This equipment essentially cools down and dries the moisture in the air before it is used which would otherwise ruin the application process.

FILTRATION (Coalescing oil filters/Particulate filters):

Although the moisture has been cooled, there are still trace amounts of oil and particles remaining. In order to protect both your equipment and the air quality, filtration systems lowers the levels of dryness and filters out harmful particles.


Regardless of the volume of condensate generated, it must be removed to ensure that air quality is free of excess oil and moisture which is a by-product of all air systems. This equipment will reduce the amount of contaminated condensate generated and will dispose of it properly and cost-effectively.


In environments, such as hospitals and lab air intakes, consistently checking for air quality is imperative to ensure patient, employee and public safety. This equipment provides round-the-clock monitoring that will alarm if it detects CO2 or other high moisture content.


Nitrogen is a dry, inert gas which is used in a wide range of applications where oxygen may be harmful to the product or processes. Nitrogen generators use regular compressed air to deliver a continuous supply of high purity nitrogen - offering a cost effective and reliable alternative to the use of cylinder or liquid nitrogen across a wide range of applications.

The advanced nano N2 range of nitrogen generators use integrated Adsorbent Media Tube (AMT) drying cartridges to provide dehydration of the compressed air prior to separation. This innovative patented feature eliminates the need for a separate desiccant dryer - saving up to 20% purge loss, significantly reducing capital and installation costs and reducing overall pressure drop by 10 psig or more over traditional nitrogen generation systems.

A few of the many industries making the switch to nano N2 nitrogen generators includes;

· food (MAP)

· beverage (bottling)

· plastics (PET)

· pharmaceutical (product transfer)

· chemicals (blanketing)

· laser metal cutting (burring reduction)

· fire prevention (eliminating combustion)

· electronics (wave soldering)

Remember, it makes no difference to us whether you need a replacement part for your current air purification system, or need our assistance in determining your air purification requirements –Compressor World BOSTON wants to be the resource you can trust!
