Gardner Denver, the leading compressed air brand, has launched its latest refrigerant dryer range, helping ensure compressed air systems remain reliable and energy efficient throughout their working life.
Fulfilling a vital role in a compressed air system, a refrigerant dryer cools the compressed air to allow water vapour to condense and then be separated. Clean and dry compressed air helps make sure a system is never compromised. Furthermore, with many modern production systems and processes demanding high quality compressed air, in accordance with the air quality classes defined in ISO8573-1:2010, refrigerant dryers have a critical role to play in achieving this. This is true for all manufacturers, where production uptime is critical for profitable and trouble-free operations. Companies will often need to adhere to strict compressed air guidelines and legislation, and therefore cannot afford to deal with corrosion and its impact on efficiency levels in air distribution systems, as well as the potential contamination of goods on production lines. To meet this need, Gardner Denver has launched its new GDD refrigerant dryer range. Offering air flow rates of to 191.67 m3/min, the range has been designed to ensure consistent dew points at all times, no matter the load level.
Focused on energy saving
The GDDF-series of refrigeration air dryers has been designed to maximise efficiency and reliability. All models are equipped with a high efficiency heat exchanger including an integrated condensate separator. The heat exchangers, completely designed and developed in our labs, are capable of achieving the highest levels of performance required from the market, together with a very low pressure drop rate.
Innovative Control Panel
With all the main functions you would expect to control and monitor the unit:
Anti freeze mode – shuts dryer off to avoid icing
Alarm display: dew point, high/low temperature, high ambient temperature
Remote ON/OFF (optional)
Condensate drain management
GDD4F – GDD80F: Electronic drain valve
The programmable electronic drain valve is a standard feature (up to GDD80F) and is fully adjustable to help minimise air loss.
Easily adjusted from the dryer control panel to match all possible working conditions.
Proven reliability – thousands in service.
Includes a strainer for quick maintenance.
GDD100F – GDD1920F: No-loss Drain
The powerful no loss electronic drain is standard from GDD100 and above, optional on all other models, and eliminates the need for pre-setting the unit. It uses state of-the-art software combined with a special transducer interface to measure the presence of condensate so that it is released only when needed. Continuous monitoring ensures fast and effective discharge of the condensate with no deficit of compressed air.
