AD Series – Compressed Air Refrigerant Dryer

AD Series – Compressed Air Refrigerant Dryer is a well-tested and popular product at a competitive value. Pneumatech’s reliable and innovative noncycling refrigerated dryers are a cost effective solution to remove condensation and the resultant corrosion from your compressed air system.

An AD Series –Compressed Air Refrigerant Dryer r is a device commonly used in pneumatic systems to remove water vapor from compressed air. The primary purpose of an air dryer is to prevent condensation and the resultant problems it can cause in industrial equipment and processes.

When air is compressed, its relative humidity increases because the same amount of water is contained in a smaller volume of air.

Without treatment, this moisture-laden air can lead to corrosion, frozen air lines, quality control issues in painting or other moisture-sensitive processes, and damage to air tools and machinery.

AD Series – Compressed Air Refrigerant Dryer work by cooling the air to lower its dew point, which is the temperature at which water vapor in the air begins to condense into liquid.

There are several types of air dryers, each using different methods to remove moisture:

  1. Refrigerated Air Dryers: These are the most common type of air dryer. They cool the compressed air, condensing water vapor into liquid form, which is then removed from the system. The dried air is then reheated to prevent any condensation on the outside of the pipes.
  2. Desiccant Air Dryers: These dryers use a chemical called a desiccant, which absorbs water vapor from the air. The desiccant is usually a material like activated alumina or silica gel. These systems can achieve much lower dew points than refrigerated dryers.
  3. Membrane Dryers: These use a special membrane that allows water vapor to pass through, while retaining the dry air on the inside. They are simple and quiet as they have no moving parts, but they are less efficient than other types and are best suited for small volumes of air.
  4. Deliquescent Dryers: These use a hygroscopic material that absorbs moisture and dissolves into a liquid, which is then drained from the system. The chemical needs to be replenished regularly.

By employing air dryers, manufacturers and other users of compressed air can improve the longevity and performance of their equipment, ensure the quality of their finished products, and enhance the overall efficiency of their operations.

AD Series – Compressed Air Refrigerant Dryer

The AD Series – Compressed Air Refrigerant Dryer is a well-tested and popular product at a competitive value. Pneumatech’s reliable and innovative noncycling refrigerated dryers are a cost effective solution to remove condensation andthe resultant corrosion from your compressed air system.

An AD Series – Compressed Air Refrigerant Dryer is a device commonly used in pneumatic systems to remove water vapor from compressed air. The primary purpose of an air dryer is to prevent condensation and the resultant problems it can cause in industrial equipment and processes.

By employing air dryers, manufacturers and other users of compressed air can improve the longevity and performance of their equipment, ensure the quality of their finished products, and enhance the overall efficiency of their operations.

Here is how they work: Refrigeration dryers come in air-cooled or water-cooled models. Both are used to cool the warm and wet air that comes from the compressor.

Initially, that happens in the air-to-air heat exchanger, and then, in a subsequent stage, in the air-to-refrigerant heat exchanger.

As the temperature falls, the moisture in the air condenses and can then be drained from the compressed air.

That air is then reheated to about room temperature in the air-to-air heat exchanger. That lowers the pressure point of the outgoing flow and prevents the formation of condensation on the outside of the piping system.

This heat exchange between ingoing and outgoing compressed air therefore also reduces the required cooling capacity of the refrigerant circuit by lowering the temperature of the incoming compressed air.

As the most popular drying technology for compressed air, the applications for refrigeration dryers are nearly endless.

AD Series – Compressed Air Refrigerant DryerPneumatech Refrigerated Air Dryer Pneumatech air dryer, a standalone unit designed for the removal of moisture from compressed air. This model sports a modern, industrial design with a compact, vertical, box-shaped structure that makes it suitable for placement in a variety of industrial settings. The unit's enclosure is a light grey color, indicative of its industrial purpose, and likely constructed from durable metal to ensure longevity and protection against environmental factors. It features a prominent front-facing grille, suggesting an air intake or exhaust port for heat exchange, a key component in the refrigeration drying process. On the upper front side, there is a control panel or display, which could include operational status indicators, pressure gauges, and temperature readouts, allowing for monitoring and control of the drying process. The Pneumatech logo and branding are clearly displayed, signifying the make and model of the unit. The overall design suggests functionality focused on efficiency, ease of use, and maintenance, as well as reliability in continuously providing dry compressed air to downstream applications.
