Refrigerated Compressed Air Dryers

Refrigerated Air Dryers

Southern Cross Compressors offer a high quality refrigerated air dryers range to ensure you get effective and efficient cooling of compressed air all year round regardless of your application or environment.

When selecting the appropriate refrigerated air dryer for your application a number of variables must be taken into consideration if the air dryer is to function properly.

Refrigerated air dryers remove liquid condensate (moisture) from your compressed air which will protect your equipment and process from the damage moisture can cause.

Factors for correctly sizing and selecting refrigerated air dryers:

  • Air flow rate
  • Air pressure
  • Ambient air temperature (for the hottest working days of the year)
  • Air Dryer inlet temperature (generally 10° C above the ambient air temperature)
  • Pressure dew-point at which water vapour condenses to form water – typically we select a 3° C PDP.
  • Removing moisture vapour from your compressed air can be achieved by using a desiccant air dryers in specialist applications.

Remember that this is Australia so you must select your air dryer for Australian conditions if it is to function correctly.
