- Drying compressed air prevents liquid water forming downstream where it can contaminate or damage the system causing operating problems, costly maintenance and repair expenses, as well as potential damage to the end-product.
- Only compressed air that is totally clean and dry will ensure maximum savings.
- The refrigeration air dryer cools the incoming air, condensing vapours into a liquid that is then drained from the system.
- This method of drying is very popular as it produces dew points which are adequate for most applications in an energy efficient and reliable manner.
- Typically, there is only a 5% additional energy cost for drying compressed air with a refrigeration dryer.
