The moisture present in the intake air is partially converted into water condensate drops in the compressor. This occurs when the pressure drops below the dew point. Due to radial acceleration of the compressed air flow within the cyclone separator, oil and water droplets are thrown against the inner wall and collect in the condensate collection chamber and separator as a result of gravity.

Considerable amounts of condensate may be produced. Dangerous for the downstream compressed air system! This can lead to corrosion in the compressed air lines and compressed air consumers. Cross-sectional constrictions in the pipelines of the compressed air network can also occur, leading to considerable compressed air losses. And this drives up the energy costs for maintaining operation. Even loss of production and product damage due to condensate can result.

With the cyclone separator, separation efficiencies of up to 98% of the total condensate can be achieved. In addition, foreign particles are separated from the air flow. Pressure losses increase with increasing kinetic energy.
