What is a refrigeration dryer?
Exactly how the name sounds, a refrigeration dryer functions in a comparable manner to home refrigerators in that a cooling method is used that prevents moisture. As a kitchen refrigerator cools and preserves perishable foods, a refrigerated air dryer maintains the air quality for industries.
Air dryers eliminate the moisture following the compressed air process. Dry compressed air is a concept that is an indication of how dry the compressed air is or needs to be, commonly referred to as dew point. Air can be compressed; however, water is unable to be compressed.
Why install an air dryer?
What would happen if moisture entered your machine? Moisture in wood causes rotting, moisture in metal causes rust, moisture in walls creates mold. Now in terms of an air compressor, moisture in your machine can damage the compressor, air motors, and valves, as well as possibly contaminate the product. All because a refirgerated air dryer was not installed.
Benefits of a refrigerated dryer:
- Low initial cost
- High reliability, easy to use and maintain
- Extends the life of your compressor
- Energy Savings
Compressor air dryers are an essential piece of equipment that are used to ensure the continuous, optimum productivity of your air compressor.
