Refrigerated Compressed Air Dryers

Nortec offers an impressive range of Refrigerated Air Dryers to meet your energy efficiency or high pressure or high inlet temperature requirements.

Energy Saving Refrigerated Air Dryers

  • Alarm Digital Controller with remote.
  • Aluminum Cooling Technology for efficient heat transfer, reduced energy consumption and
    pressure drop.
  • Constant Pressure Hot-Gas By-Pass Valve for precise pressure dew point control
    over full range of load conditions.
  • Fan Pressure Switch on all Models — Dryer can operate in ambient's as low as 35º F.
  • Robust Controls on Large Dryers — All three phase dryers come standard with NEMA 12
    Electrical, thermal overload protection and refrigeration low and high pressure safety switches.
  • Oversized Condensers — Allows dryers to operate in ambient's in excess of standard conditions.

High Inlet Air Temperature Dryers

  • Every model equipped with an Aftercooler.
  • Every model has an integral 3 micron separator filter.
  • Inlet Temperature up to 210º F.
  • 3 Micron Filter — Separator with drain.
  • Aluminum Cooling Technology— Air to air, air to refrigerant, separator module with efficient heat transfer, reduced energy consumption and low pressure drop.
  • Constant Pressure Hot Gas By-pass Valve — Precise pressure dew point control over full operating range.
  • Fan Pressure Switch on ALL models — Dryer can operate in ambient's as low as 35º F.
  • Dual Easy To Service Programmable Electronic Timer Drains — First for the After-cooler — Second for the  refrigerated Dryer Separator.

Aluminum Modular Dryers

  • Compact design.
  • Precise Dew Point Control.
  • Fan control standard.
  • Excellent performance : These dryers achieve excellent performance even in installations with high ambient and high inlet temperatures. The highly efficient and ultra compact heat exchanger is able to operate effectively in ambient temperatures up to 115º F and inlet temperatures of 130º F with minimal pressure drop.
  • Economy of Operation : The dryers are sized to match standard compressor outputs. E.g. a 10 HP (7.5kW) air compressor with theoretical output of 50 scfm at 100 psig matches the dryer rated at 50 scfm. It is therefore unnecessary to select a larger model.
  • Environmentally Friendly Construction: All materials used in the construction of these dryers are easily recycled. Only environmentally friendly refrigerants are used.
