Your air compressor is a critical investment for your business. It’s important to take care of it, and part of that is ensuring that you have the right accessories to improve performance and help it last into the future.

Below are three must-have accessories that will improve performance:

Compressed Air Regulator

Air compressors require a significant amount of energy. Different applications require a different amount of air, and when you get that wrong, it can be damaging to different components in the system.

The pressure in the air supply is vital no matter your application. A regulator controls that pressure so that you get exactly the air that you need. A regulator can adjust for the devices that are on the supply line and assure the right pressure for downstream components.

High Performance Filter

The air within your compressed air system isn’t naturally clean. It likely contains many of the particles, aerosols, and vapors that can be found in the natural environment. This can be a problem, no matter the application that you use it for.

The filter’s job is to remove contaminants from compressed air. The type of filter that you need will vary by machine and application. Generally, it comes down to coalescing filters, vapor removal filters, and dry particulate filters.

Air Dryer

Lingering moisture can damage your air compressor system and equipment. Moisture acts as the enemy of any type of metal or machinery, causing rust or allowing mold growth. This isn’t good for any application but can be particularly problematic for healthcare or food, where the standards are higher.

Air dryers can help you avoid this outcome. The two main types of dryers are desiccant dryers and refrigerated dryers. Find out more about how and when to add a dryer to your air compressor system.
