OXAIR Desiccant Air Dryer
A typical OXAIR Desiccant Air Dryer pays for itself in less than a year by reducing and eliminating maintenance costs and downtime. Clean, dry air makes your operation more productive. At 24°C / 75°F and 75% relative humidity, a 500 SCFM/850 NM³/HR Air Compressor takes in about 340 litres of water in vapour form during a 24-hour period. The Compressor After Cooler Condenses about half the amount of water. As the air flows from the compressor into an Air Receiver and Air Distribution lines, it cools. The vapour condenses causing rust, scale, in The Air Receiver and ultimately leaks in pipes, valves, instruments, and air-operated tools and equipment. Moreover, when exposed to freezing temperatures, the moisture in airlines will freeze and restrict airflow. As long as the compressed air is not exposed to temperatures below the temperature the air was Dried to in the desiccant air dryer, (the dew point temperature), no troublesome liquid will form in downstream air lines and equipment. Dry air keeps pneumatic equipment running at peak efficiency and extends the service life of air tools, motors, and cylinders. Dry air allows pneumatic instruments, valves, and controls to operate reliably and helps ensure product and process quality.
