Condensate Management Systems

Controlling and removing air compressor condensate

When you run a compressed air system that uses oil lubricated air compressors it generates condensate, which is a combination of water, oil and dangerous particulates that are not visible to the naked eye.

If condensate is not removed from your compressed air system, it can damage your equipment and can cause many issues such as operational problems, machine inefficiencies, system breakdown and production downtime. You, therefore, need to remove condensate from your compressed air system, but it will have to be disposed of in a safe and responsible manner.

Air compressor condensate is a waste product and as such there are regulations to follow for its disposal.  Installation of a condensate Management System will enable compliance with the hazardous waste regulations 2005 and the Water Resources Act 1991, which requires condensate from an air compressor must be cleaned and discharged down a foul drain. Failure to do so can render you liable for fines of £20,000 or more in a Crown Court. (BCAS Fact Sheet 302-1 Hazardous waste and compressed air condensate.) You should not allow condensate to discharge directly on the ground.
