    Thanks for sharing Keith.  This is the first I hear of liquid water getting into the medical air piping due to dryers being used at greater than capacity...Have others seen this too?

    Hi Jonathan

    I have come across it many times, but only in refrigerant dryers.

    I haven't seen it myself but I'm sure it can happen with dessicant dryer systems.

    I've seen numerous refrigerant dryers fail under heavy load.
