11/2009 - Energy efficient refrigerant dryers

BOGE has just launched a new range of energy saving refrigerant dryers. The new DS series of refrigerant dryers from BOGE are not just energy efficient but they have also been designed without compromise to assure utmost reliability. Time proven, tried and tested components used in compressed air drying systems are the basics integrated into the DS series design. Optimally dimensioned components assure reliability and efficiency, even in the most demanding conditions. The DS series dryers also constantly adapt to changes in ambient and volume flow to ensure dry compressed air is always delivered.

At the same time the intelligent heat exchanger system creates a much lower pressure drop when compared to conventional systems. This low pressure drop means that the compressor generation pressure can be reduced - highly desirable when you consider that each 1 bar pressure reduction nominally saves 6% in energy costs! By ensuring the lowest possible pressure loss a high level of energy efficiency can be achieved.

As the energy consumption of the compressor is far greater than the dryer then these savings have a much larger impact and so also substantially increase the efficiency of the compressor.

It is estimated that over a 5 year operating period the purchase price of a compressed air dryer accounts for only about a third of the total cost. A third of all costs are spent on the electricity required to run the dryer for 5 years. A further third is consumed over a 5 year period by the compressor in order to overcome the dryer's pressure drop.
With the BOGE DS series, lowest possible pressure losses reduce energy consumption year on year, impacting on the associated electricity used year on year.

The DS dryer control continuously adapts the dryer operation to the real operating conditions. This additionally ensures continual energy saving.

The extended lifetime this quality product offers coupled with the energy saving heat exchanger system makes the DS series refrigerant dryers a popular choice for any factory manager keen to keep their associated energy costs down.

The new DS series dryers are compact ensuring a small footprint and have been designed for ease of maintenance.

The DS series has a standard 3oC pressure dew point and a flow capacity from 7,5 to 180 m3/min. The range is environmentally friendly, emits zero ODP, low GWP and is Montreal Protocol compliant. For more information freephone 0800 318104.
