    Good afternoon, all…hoping someone can help to answer my question.

    My goal is to prove (or disprove) that compressing to a lower pressure means there's inherently less liquid water condensate to remove from the airstream. For instance, if a pump compresses to 50psi instead of 100psi, there will be less liquid condensate draining out after the heat exchanger and less moisture to remove with an air dryer.

    Is this true? Anyone help me with the math to back it up?

    Thanks,
    -Steve

    Anyone? Is my question maybe unclear to you? Explain what’s hard to understand and maybe I can decode it for you. Thanks again, -Steve

    I agree, there should be less condensate avaliable from air pressurized at 50psi than 100psi.
