Dryer before compressor

  • Thread starter LotteVV
  • Start date

I was wondering if a dryer is ever placed before the compressor? For limiting the presence of water vapor before the compressor inlet, I was thinking of drying the air before the compressor (it's a closed system btw). Is this the right technique? Or you this be done otherwise?

Limiting the water vapor is so make sure no bacteria can reach the oil filter that is located right after the compressor.

Kind regards
