Aftercoolers are heat exchangers for cooling the discharge from a air compressor. They use either air or water and are an effective means of removing moisture from compressed air.
Aftercoolers reduce the amount of water vapor in a compressed air system by condensing the water vapor into liquid form. Aftercoolers combined with a seperator are an excellent way to reduce moisture in a compressed air system. In a distribution or process manufacturing system, liquid water causes significant damage to equipment.
An aftercooler is necessary to ensure the proper functionality of pneumatic or air handling devices that are a part of process manufacturing systems. Aftercoolers can use either air-cooled or water-cooled mechanisms.
