Refrigerent Dryers – Principle of Operation –
Wet air enters into the dryer and passes through the heat exchanger. The warm wet air entering the dryer is cooled down by the outgoing cold and dried air which reduces load on the refrigerant compressor, saving energy costs.
Next the compressed air passes through the air to refrigerant heat exchanger which cools the air temperature to the pre-set dewpoint. This is set at +2C, water in the air at this stage condenses and turns into water droplets. This condensate is removed automatically by the autodrain as bulk water. (This should then pass into an oil/water separator before going to drain).
Finally, the cool and dry air is reheated by thermally mixing it with the incoming air which also reduces its relative humidity (water-loading), thus preventing pipework corrosion and annoying condensation on downstream pipework.
