Energy-saving refrigeration dryers, 37.5 - 90.0 m³/min

High-flow units designed for continuous operation – and cost reduction

Kaeser TH - TI series refrigeration dryers are designed for continuous operation and allow operators of larger compressed air stations to take advantage of unimaginable energy savings. The dryer system not only features extremely low differential pressure, it also employs an innovative refrigerant compressor that continuously adjusts its power consumption: when air flow falls, so does power consumption!

  • Reliably dry compressed air from 37.5 to 90 m³/min
  • For working pressures up to 16 bar
  • Air-cooling or water-cooling
  • Optional FE microfilter for extremely high air purity

Your advantages

  • Huge savings in partial-load operation:
    Depending on the temperature to which compressed air is cooled, a cycled solenoid valve varies the size of the compression chamber of the refrigeration compressor, which consumes correspondingly less power in partial-load operation.
  • Extremely low differential pressure:
    Generously dimensioned stainless steel plate-type heat exchangers ensure optimal differential pressure values, thereby further enhancing the energy efficiency of the system.
  • Industrial quality control cabinet:
    Kaeser energy-saving refrigeration dryers are produced to EN 60204-1 and tested for electromagnetic compatibility according to the German EMC Act (EMVG). In contrast to equipment that is only tested to VDE 0700, they are designed to meet the high-test requirements of industrial processes.

The perfect partner: the AQUAMAT oil/water separator
AQUAMAT condensate treatment system

Our tip: Take advantage of cost-effective, legally-compliant treatment of condensate before drainage into the regular wastewater system with AQUAMAT oil/water separators.

Energy saving potential of KAESER dryers

Energy-saving dryers from Kaeser only consume energy when they're actually drying compressed air. Thanks to the Kaeser energy-saving system, electrical power consumption rises and falls in proportion to the air flow volume when operating in the partial-load range.

Sample statement of savings: TI 521 – with an assumed average volume of 40 %

Annual energy savings: € 5,513/year
TI 521 power consumption: 2.6 kW
Power consumption of comparable dryer with hot gas bypass control: 6.2 kW x 93 % = 5.8 kW
(5.8 kW - 2.6 kW) x 8760 h/year x € 0.20 /kWh

Environmental CO2 reduction: 16.5 t CO2/year
165 t CO2 / 10 years (1000 kWh power = 0.6 t CO2 in emissions)
