Parker: Micro-organisms in Compressed Air Untreated, compressed air entering a wet air receiver and/or distribution piping system will contain many contaminants, including liquid water, water aerosols and it will also be 100% saturated with water vapor. Water is the most problematic of all compressed air contaminants as it not only causes damage through corrosion, more seriously; wet compressed air promotes the growth of micro-organisms.
