What is Compressed Air Condensate?

Definition: condensate is a liquid formed from water vapour in the air as a result of a drop in temperature and/or an increase in pressure.  Most times it is an oil/water mixture; sometimes it is formed as an oil/water emulsion.  This liquid mixes with atmospheric hydrocarbon contaminants as well as oil carried over from lubricated compressors to form acidic, oily condensate sludge.  An 18kW (25hp) compressor may produce up to 10’000 litres of oil contaminated condensate per year.
