At present, the problem of the compressed preparation (drying and purifying) at the railway rolling stock and enterprises has no single unique solution. The authors try to analyze and systemize the mechanical method for compressed air preparation at the mains of charging and testing breaks device at car depots. It is suggested to use SWOT analysis as the key to analyze strong and weak sides of the method and consider the possible opportunities and threats of its implementation. As an example, the pneumatic system of the “Bataysk-Sever” car exploitation depot is considered for the implementation of energy-saving-compressed air purification systems. The jalousie separator placed in tanks is suggested as an energy-saving technology to be applied for the compressed air purification at pneumatic systems.
