Any air flow necessary for the operation of the dryers shall be in excess of the minimum net flow rate of 500 SCFM. The design inlet conditions shall be 94 degrees Fahrenheit (94 F), 14.5 PSIA and 57% relative humidity. The compressor/dryer system shall be skid mounted, either together or separately.
