Refrigerated air dryers use the same cooling principal as typical air conditioning units in homes across the world. Using the refrigeration system and passing compressed air through a heat exchanger, the air is cooled to approximately 3°C/40 °F. As the air cools, water droplets begin to form in the air due to condensation much like the water droplets that form on the outside of a cold drink. The moisture laden air then undergoes a mechanical separation process where the liquid or “condensate” is separated from the air stream. The air is then rewarmed using the incoming air which lowers the relative humidity of the air and traps any remaining moisture in a vapor form.
Pneumatech offers a Standard (S) range and a High Efficiency (HE) range of compressed air filters to best meet your process needs. Both filter ranges offer similar benefits such as:
- Maximum contaminant removal
- Energy savings
- Increased reliability
- Easy maintenance
The HE range is engineered for minimal pressure drops and offers significant energy savings over time. Pneumatech filters are available in a number ofgrades (P, G, C, S, D and V) and sizes:
ConservAIR® technology is used to control the demand side of a compressed air system, utilizing an Intermediate Control (I/C)® flow control device.
An Intermediate Control (I/C)® flow control device monitors and stabilizes air pressure by adjusting flow. The Intermediate Control (I/C)® flow control releases air from storage to maintain a continuous, optimal air pressure supply. The result of using ConservAIR® flow controls is reduced waste from leaks, reduced energy consumption from the compressor room, and, most importantly, constant, stable air pressure for production.
