Course Description

The Compressors: Ancillary Equipment course in an informative, intermediate-level overview to the ancillary equipment used to purify compressed air. In this course, learners are presented with the types of pollutants removed by the ancillary equipment during the purification stages, the lower-level purification equipment, the higher-level purification equipment, and the compressed air quality standards that drive ancillary equipment selection based on the end-use application of the compressed air. Learners who are compressed air system designers, compressed air system installers, and compressed air end users will find value in this course.
