UNIQUE HEAT EXCHANGER:
Vertical profile allows for minimum pressure drop and self cleans using gravitational force
VARIOFLOW HOT GAS BY-PASS:
Stable dew point regardless of varying operating conditions - patented design
Reliable condensate discharge and maximum energy savings
ENERGY SAVING TECHNOLOGY:
Oversized condensers and smaller high performance compressor maximize energy savings
Warm compressed air, saturated with water vapor, is precooled in the air/air heat exchanger (1) when entering the refrigeration dryer. The required cooling capacity of the refrigerant in the downstream air/refrigerant heat exchanger (2) is reduced by this action and the system becomes more energy-efficient. The gravitational force sustains a particularly high droplet separation of nearly 99%. In the very large condensate collection chamber with subsequent recirculation, the flow velocity is significantly reduced.
Re-entrainment of already separated droplets is reliably prevented in this manner (3). The accumulated condensate is discharged from the iDRY® via the level-controlled iMAT® condensate drain (4) avoiding any compressed air loss, and can be processed reliably using an oil-water separation system or emulsion-splitting plant. Prior to leaving the iDRY®, the dried and cold compressed air is reheated in the air/air heat exchanger. Through this process, the relative air humidity is significantly reduced and the cooling capacity employed is recovered by up to 60%.
