Refrigeration Air Drying Process

Refrigeration Drying Process Flow Diagram

Altec AIR Refrigerated Air Dryers stand out as essential components in ensuring optimal air quality for your compressed air system. Utilizing refrigeration cooling technology, these dryers efficiently condense moisture, effectively removing it from your system. Let's delve into the intricacies of their operation:

  • Pre-cooling Process: Warm, moisture-laden air enters a pre-cooler/re-heater heat exchanger at the dryer inlet. Here, it encounters outgoing cold air, initiating the pre-cooling process to regulate its temperature.

  • Air to Refrigerant Heat Exchange: The pre-cooled air then advances to the air to refrigerant heat exchanger, where it undergoes further cooling. This stage brings the air to its lowest temperature point, facilitating moisture condensation.

  • Moisture Removal: As the air cools, the moisture within it transitions from vapor to liquid form. This condensed moisture is efficiently removed by a robust stainless-steel mesh separator and is discharged from the dryer through an automatic drain valve.

  • Re-heating Mechanism: Following moisture removal, the now cold air undergoes re-heating by incoming warm air. This re-heating process occurs as the air circulates back through the pre-cooler/re-heater, ensuring optimal temperature regulation.

  • Clean, Dry Air Output: The culmination of this process results in the production of warm, clean, and dry air, ready for immediate utilization by your compressed air system.

Incorporating Altec AIR Refrigerated Air Dryers into your setup ensures not only the elimination of moisture but also the delivery of high-quality, conditioned air to meet the demanding requirements of your compressed air applications.
