The development of condensate during compression

Calculation step 1: amount of water sucked into the compressor

Amount of water sucked
into the compressor (m Water In)

0,00[l/h]

Calculation step 2: condensate accumulation after the compressor


0,00 [l/h]
0,00[l/h]

Calculation step 3: Condensate accumulation after the refrigeration dryer

Condensate failure n.d. refrigeration dryer

0,00 [l/h]

Remaining residual moisture i. i.e. compressed air

0,00[l/h]

Calculation step 4: Total condensate

Total condensate discharged

0,00 [l/h]

Remarks:

  1. Air 100% saturated after compression
  2. Pressure at installation site 1.01325 bar (atmospheric pressure)
  3. The maximum humidity of the temperature at the installation site fmax TU [g/m³] is taken from a stored table
  4. The maximum humidity of the temperature after the compressor outlet fmax TA [g/m³] is taken from a stored table
  5. The maximum humidity of the temperature after the refrigeration dryer fmax T3 [g/m³] is taken from a stored table

Did you know that in a day shift (8h full load):

 

  • at a volume flow of 1000 m³/h,
  • a final compression pressure of 10 bar (g) and
  • a humidity of 60% (at 30°C) a total of approx. 140 l condensate is produced?
