The DRYPOINT® X heatless desiccant dyer series are fitted with two pressure vessels, positioned parallel to one another and filled with ⅛” activated alumina. While the compressed air is dried in one tower, the saturated desiccant is regenerated in the second. A minimal portion of the treated air is used for the regeneration process and expelled along with the condensate through the silencers.
The 160cfm XCp 160 heatless regenerative air dryer includes the BEKOTOUCH microprocessor control as standard. The intuitive and feature rich BEKOTOUCH controller has full-color, touchscreen display, data trends, high humidity alarm, and even includes a spare parts list. The BEKOTOUCH controller constantly monitors and controls the air dryer. This also provides alarms for filter contamination, maintenance due, drain alarms and more.
Humidity control comes standard on the DRYPOINT® XCp160 line of dryers. Humidity control provides the XCp 160 with an energy management function and early moisture detection within the desiccant bed.
Humidity control utilizes a humidity sensor located within a sampling chamber that monitors the mid tower compressed air from of the online drying vessel. The humidity sensor continuously checks the vessel to see if the dryer’s desiccant has a moisture level below the humidity control set point. If the humidity is below the set point, the controller program will extend the drying cycle on that vessel thus saving energy by not switching vessels and using purging air. If the humidity in the vessel is too high, it will trigger the system a minor alarm. This feature is to protect the bed from oversaturation and to provide the customer some means of energy savings
This air dryer is equipped with a pre-installed 0.01 micron coalescing pre-filter with differential pressure gauge which removes trace oil vapors prior to entering the air dryer. A 1 micron dust filter is installed on the outlet of the dryer to remove any desiccant dust that might flake off during the drying process. These filters are installed with a 3-valve bypass for ease of service.
The XCP 160 dryer is designed to provide plants with a -40ºF dew point. This removes virtually all trace contaminants in the compressed air providing clean dry air downstream. If you are looking for one of the highest quality desiccant dryers on the market, the premium heatless XCP line through BEKO is the optimal choice.
Dryer flow rates are based on 100 psig and 100°F inlet compressed air. Please contact us if you need help sizing a desiccant air dryer specifically for your air system. The internal BEKO part number for this dryer is 4032029.
