What can I do to lower the energy cost of my air dryer?
My use multiple air dryers in my facility, and they are causing the energy cost to be high. What can I do to make my air treatment system more energy-efficient?
Pneumatech cycling dryers are energy efficient and are the most commonly used dryer to save on energy and maintenance costs. Cycling dryers are ultimate energy savers. The energy consumption in a cycling dryer will flucuate according to moisture load and flow rate in the compressed air system. Pneumatech's cycling dryers use a Cycle Saver algorithm that starts and stops the dryer to save energy while keeping the relative humidity of the compressed air below 50% to prevent the formation of liquid water. A hot gas bypass valve is used to prevent ice from forming in the dryer during periods of low flow along with an intelligent shutdown feature in the event of freezing ambient temperatures.
For a facility that uses a dryer throughout the day, but may have small lull periods, a cycling dryer is the ideal solution. If your facility is in need of an energy-efficient drying solution and constantly uses compressed air to operate, a cycling dryer is needed. Pneumatech offers durable and reliable cycling (and non-cycling) dryers in various sizes to accomodate the need of any industry. You can browse Pneumatech's refrigerated dryers HERE.
Air dryers are used downstream of an air compressor to rid the compressed air of any moisture or humidity before it reaches your application or final product. Using air dryers is imperative in many applications such as the food/beverage industry, electronics manufacturing and spray painting in the automotive industry.
Compressed air will always contain some level of moisture depending on the environment and ambient temperature surrounding the compressor. Using the air while it contains moisture can cause a number of issues for your tools, other equipment and ultimately your business.
