Quality, efficient compressed air treatment begins with drying.
Kaeser offers a wide range of efficient compressed air dryers, based on various operation principles, that deliver application-specific compressed air to meet all needs with regards to quality, pressure dew point and delivery volume.
The graph provides and initial overview:
- Energy-saving refrigeration dryers, such as Kaeser’s “Secotec“ series units, are generally used to treat “normal” works- and control-air and provide a minimum pressure dew point of +3 °C.
- Heatless or heat regenerating desiccant dryers (depending on flow volume requirement) provide pressure dew points down to -70 °C and are used to treat air for applications requiring exceptionally dry air, such as those in the electronics, food and beverage industries. They are also used for systems that are subject to sub-zero conditions and provide quality process air e.g. for the pharmaceutical industry. Kaeser desiccant dryers ensure exceptional efficiency and reliability.
- Kaeser membrane dryers are the perfect choice for fixed or mobile applications (e.g. in containers or trucks) where space is at a premium, or where the compressed air requires additional drying after the refrigeration drying process, e.g. areas subject to sub-zero conditions on a seasonal basis. They are also ideal as point-of-use dryers for smaller compressed air volumes and can be installed directly upstream from the air-consuming equipment, e.g. on CNC machines.
