Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9733679A1] An air drying and purification system for compressed air from a compressor is disclosed. The air drying and purification system comprises a separator chamber for at least partially drying and purifying compressed air from the compressor by separating moisture and entrained particulate material and other contaminants from the compressed air. The separator chamber has an inlet for compressed air; a contact surface facing the inlet and forming an impact zone for separating moisture and entrained particulates and other contaminants from compressed air entering the separator chamber via the inlet; an outlet for at least partially dried and purified compressed air; and an adjustable valve member for controlling the flow of compressed air from the separator chamber via the outlet.
