CompAir offers a full range of energy efficient and environmentally friendly compressed air dryers, such as refrigerant dryers, heatless and heated desiccant dryers as well as HOC dryers.
Air is a colorless, odorless, tasteless mixture of many gases, primarily nitrogen and oxygen. Air is naturally contaminated with solid particles, such as dust, sand, soot and salt crystals. This contamination varies with differing environments and altitude.
Water vapor is another natural ingredient which can be found in variable amounts in the air. The amount of water vapor and contamination of the air plays a vital role in the compression process and in the quality of the air delivered by the compressor.
The damaging and corrosive properties of water are well known. Untreated air at atmospheric pressure contains large amounts of water and other contaminants such as oil droplets and dirt particles.
When the air is compressed the concentration of moisture and other contaminants increases. If allowed to remain in the system this corrosive mixture has a detrimental effect on pneumatic equipment, causing unnecessary production downtime, product spoilage and reduced equipment life.
Compressed air filters remove the oil and dirt content while compressed air dryers remove water vapor before air reaches the point of use.
Reliable refrigerant dryers, proven in thousands of applications, ensure a reliable supply of high-quality air for your processes. CompAir refrigerant dryers are characterised by their energy efficiency, which helps to reduce running costs, thanks to their patented heat exchanger technology.
CompAir offers a range of refrigerated air drying solutions including:
The CompAir A-Series dryers use the heat-less, or PSA, method to regenerate the adsorbent material. These are the simplest adsorption type available and have long been the choice for many industries and applications. Reliable and cost effective and for small to medium flow systems, these are often the only viable technology available. Modular versions such as the A-Series are an even more reliable, smaller, more compact and lightweight solution. They can be installed in the compressor room or at the point of use.
Compared to traditional twin tower dryer designs, the CompAir compressed air dryer’s unique modular construction is typically a lot smaller and lighter than comparable twin tower desiccant dryers. Providing a simple to install and easy to maintain design which is fully corrosion protected and supported by numerous international standard approvals.
A_XS and A_TX series adsorption dryers have activated carbon stages & are a reliable and proven purification unit which meets extreme requirements when the compressed air must not only be dried, but also be odourless and free from oil.
Series A_TV and A_RS series adsorption dryers utilise active-heating, combined with intensive vacuum supported cooling, which defines the industry standard for heat-regenerative dryers.
For many oil-free applications the heat-of-compression drying process is the most energy efficient way. CompAir offers a range of highly efficient HOC dryers offering lowest operating costs and extremely low-noise operation.
