New dryer system delivers major energy savings

Updated dryer leads to major energy savings for a customer experiencing pressure related issues.

A customer was experiencing pressure-related issues at its site which was due to the existing air treatment system being undersized for the system’s compressed air demand. As the system had grown, no consideration had been given to the air dryer and filtration sizing resulting in the problems seen.

Direct AirĀ  & Pipework recommended a new, large capacity Beko refrigerant dryer together with matching filters and a new pipework system. The installation had to be carried out during a very short downtime period and so the dryer and filter assembly was prefabricated off-site prior to the agreed date.

Major energy savings will be seen for the system due to the reduced pressure drop and the air quality delivered will meet the system’s requirements now that the dryer and filtration is correctly sized.
