22. Do Air Filters Reduce the Air Dew Point?

Filters can generally only remove solid, liquid particles (drops), while water vapour and oil vapour can pass unimpeded through the curved pathways of the filter material. Therefore, mechanical filters cannot remove them (except for activated carbon filters). The only way to fundamentally remove water and oil vapours is to lower the dew point temperature of the air with a dryer.
