It is best to ensure that compressed air is dry and clean before it is used in any pneumatic process. Moisture is always present in the compressed air along with dust particles, oil (oils particles are introduced by lubricated air compressors) and solid contaminants which can adversely affect air quality. If the compressed air is not dry there will be corrosion in compressed air pipe line, pneumatic tools and systems which will lead to their malfunctioning. The only positive means of moisture removal is the installation of Compressed Air Dryers. In most cases refrigeration dryers are suitable where application require ADP upto (-) 20 C or (-) 4 F. Refrigeration dryers are low in first cost, operating cost and energy consumption, making them the most cost effective solution for drying for general instrumentation and controls.
Refrigeration dryer operates on the method of cooling the air near to freezing point to remove the moisture and reheating it to approximately 10 C below the incoming compressed air temperature at nominal conditions. It is designed for just the right quality of air at the most economical costs. It has wide instrumentation air where requirement is between 3 C PDP to 6 C PDP. It uses less energy and hence low operating cost. The FDI series Air Dryers a packaged self contained unit, fully automatic and produces a steady level of dew point. They are available in 28 standard models, with capacities from 10.6 CFM to 6000 CFM. It provides atmospheric dew point down to (-) 20 C approx. Complete dryer operation overview from Delsmart Card MIMIC display, available in air and water cooled versions. Its energy saving, low power consumption and easy acceptability for maintenance. It can be specially designed for high pressure applications with optional features such as filter suitable for high pressure application, dryer with bypass line and valve.
