Features & Benefits

The use of only the best materials and components available guarantees reliability and ensures a sound, long term investment

Dryers are designed as a complete solution to suit your application needs instead of the more common bit-by-bit approach

Whether produced in the U.S., Europe or Asia they are built to meet the market specific requirements

Three basic designs are highly configurable into a wide array of variants optimized for the customer’s application

Dryer technologies ranging from demand controlled zero purge to heat of compression and combination dryer designs

iDRY® Blower Purge Desiccant Air Dryer

Adsorption Phase
Saturated compressed air enters the dryer through a required coalescing prefilter (not pictured) and flows through the open inlet valve [1]. Air flows upward through the tower where the desiccant extracts and retains water vapor [2], thereby lowering the dew point, before exiting the top of the tower. The dry air passes through the outlet check valve [3] and passes through the particulate post-filter (not pictured) before exiting the dryer to the air distribution system [4]. The blower intakes ambient air through an in-line heater [5] and exits into the regeneration tower under atmospheric pressure.  

Regeneration Phase
The heated, dry air flows through the tower [6], evaporating water from the moisture laden desiccant, before exiting near the bottom of the tower. This moist purge air passes through the purge exhaust valve and is vented to open atmosphere [7] through the muffler. After a set amount of time, the heater turns off [8], and the blower is cooling the heater down to a pre-set temperature. After temperature is reached, the purge valve opens [9] and additional desiccant bed cooling takes place [10] for a pre-set amount of time, and the exhaust valve closes [11] and the vessle is re-pressurized. The air flow through the dryer will then reverse, turning the drying tower into the regenerating tower.
