    Banish moisture in compressed air with new refrigerated air dryer range

Tests have revealed that, in certain atmospheric conditions, the moisture contained in compressed air generated by a 75 kW compressor after a single days operation could be equivalent to 113 litres of water - or around 150 wine bottles full of liquid. Obviously any compressed air system containing this volume of air moisture will suffer from dramatically reduced valve and air cylinder performance. Our newly extended range of Refrigerated Air Dryers – Series IDFA 55E/75E – when tested in conditions specified in ISO7183 can now, thanks to their highly efficient, corrosion resistant, stainless steel heat exchangers, eliminate moisture from the inlet air down to an impressive ISO 8573-1 class 4 outlet air quality with a 3ºC dew point. Designed specifically for use in Europe, the 10 model, CE accredited, range offers flow rate sized options of between 12 to 660 m3/h (ANR) and each use ozone friendly Montreal protocol compliant refrigerants - R134a and R407c and operate with a 230 VAC (50Hz) voltage power supply

    Banish moisture in compressed air with new refrigerated air dryer range

Tests carried out by SMC, have indicated that in certain atmospheric conditions the moisture contained in compressed air from a 75 kW compressor after one days operation could be equivalent to 113 litres of water, this is enough to fill around 150 wine bottles. Obviously any compressed air system containing this volume of air moisture will suffer from dramatically reduced valve and air cylinder performance. Our new range of Refrigerated Air Dryers – Series IDFA – reduces the moisture in compressed air and is designed specifically for the European market, with both CE accreditation and 230 VAC (50Hz) voltage requirements. Water vapour is removed through a highly efficient stainless steel heat exchanger that offers improved corrosion resistant and a low pressure drop.
