Refrigerant Dryers, Blower Purge Dryers, Adsorption Dryers, Filtration and Condensate Treatment

The treatment of compressed air is often the most neglected aspect of any compressed air installation. We offer filtration, drying, storage and condensate management solutions to achieve the most stringent ISO 8573 classifications of Class 1.1.1.

Air receivers, filters, compressed air dryers and refrigeration dryers form part of our extensive air treatment product range.

Condensate management, treatment and correct disposal in terms of legislation is achievable with our range of oily water separators.

This is mandatory for all factories and a requirement for ISO14000 accreditation.

What is the difference between a refrigerated dryer and a desiccant dryer?

The most significant factor that can be used to draw a line between refrigerated and desiccant dryers, is the desired dew point. A

refrigerated air dryer is capable of providing a dew point between 3 – 5 degrees Celsius. This temperature is sufficient for most industrial

applications. On the other hand, if your application require high-quality compressed air, then you should opt for a desiccant air dryer.

Desiccant dryers can achieve a dew point of up to -70 degrees Celsius, which is a standard temperature that guarantees the cleanest and

driest compressed air.

There is always some moisture in the atmospheric air sucked in by the compressor. The amount of this humidity varies depending on the temperature of the air and geographical conditions. When the temperature of the compressed air coming out of the compressor in the working environment is reduced with an air dryer, the moisture, that is, the gaseous water, condenses and becomes liquid water. Humidity in the air causes corrosion of the installation, diameter losses and a series of the problems that trigger each other in compressed air systems. These damages, which cause loss of work, time and money, are prevented by evacuating the liquid formed, by cooling the compressed air with a refrigerated dryer (+3 °C Dew Point temperature). Clean and dry compressed air will reduce the operating cost of your facility and ensure it is an efficient operation.
