The desiccant medium has a finite capacity for adsorbing moisture before it must be dried out, or regenerated. To do this, the tower containing saturated desiccant medium is depressurized and the accumulated water is driven off.
How this happens depends on the type of dryer.
Safeguard your production and your reputation
Atlas Copco desiccant dryers protect the reliability of your production and the quality of your products. The high-performance dryers remove the moisture from your compressed air with a standard pressure dewpoint of -20 °C/-5 °CF, -40 °CC/-40 °CF and -70 °CC/-100 °CF for complete peace of mind, at the dewpoint per unit your individual applications require.
Set new quality standards
Tested according to ISO 7183:2007, Atlas Copco desiccant dryers meet and often exceed international standards for compressed air purity. Naturally, all our dryers provide full protection of electrical components, controls and displays.
Drive down energy costs
Atlas Copco desiccant dryers come with a range of energy-saving features that cut your carbon footprint.
- • A pressure drop below 0.2 bar/2.9 psi drives down energy costs.
- • Dewpoint sensing and control adapt energy consumption to the real load of the dryer.
- • An adjustable dewpoint enables you to adapt the dryer to your actual needs.
