Chicago Pneumatic Air Compressor Dryers

Atmospheric air contains water which is drawn in along with the air. After compression, the air and water are then discharged, with some of the water content being removed by an after-cooler and then discharged. However, a large proportion of the water vapor content remains in the compressed air, moving in the pipe distribution system as the air is consumed.

As time passes, the water can cause damage to pipes and applications, resulting in production downtime and higher maintenance costs. CPX dryers are machines designed for treating compressed air. By using the refrigerant characteristics of certain fluid, these dryers lower the temperature of the compressed air, causing water vapor to condense and discharge prior to it entering any distribution system.

CPX - Refrigerated Air Dryers

Sized to handle 12 to 2472 CFM, the CPX dryers fit any application. Extremely quiet and reliable, CPX dryers deliver dry air with minimal pressure drop.

Features:

  • Eliminates Water, Oil and Dirt from Air Systems
  • Prevents Damage to Tools and Cylinders, Adding to their Longevity
  • Fewer Finished Product Defects
  • Prevents "Fisheye" Paint Splotches
  • Reduces Operational Downtime
  • Eliminates Air Line Purging
  • Compact Design for Small Footprint
  • Quality Components for Efficient Cooling
  • Internal Layout and Enclosure Allow for Quite Operation

CPXHT - High temp dryers

A perfect complement to the RCP. With a maximum inlet temperature of 180F, no after-cooler is required. Included filtration eliminates dirt and oil giving you clean, dry compressed air. The CPXHT dryers are easy to install and have a compact design. Supplied with 115 Volt power means no special wiring is required and the space saving design incorporates an air cooled aftercooler, refrigerated air dryer, moisture separator, electronic water drain and coalescing filter.
