The company’s new D-EC line of energy-saving, refrigerated compressed air dryers are suitable for small commercial compressed air users, such as machine shops, automotive repair and refinishing businesses and light manufacturing applications. Available in eight models, the dryers range in capacities from 10 to 125 standard cubic ft/min (0.28 to 3.5 cubic m/min). The D-EC cycling dryers incorporate a thermal mass that stores cold energy, providing enhanced operating efficiency over competitive non-cycling products in this range. The thermal mass cools the air flowing through the dryer, allowing the refrigeration system to turn off during periods of low demand without degrading air quality. The new line offers many features that are not typically available on small capacity models. The patented, multi-layer heat exchanger combines the chiller, evaporator and pre-cooler/reheater to optimize the efficiency of the dryer and compressed air system. In addition, the precooler/reheater exchanger warms the air exiting the dryer, thereby eliminating the potential for ambient moisture to condense on the outer surface of the downstream piping.
