Pneumatech high temperature refrigerated air dryers are designed specifically for use with piston and reciprocating air compressors without an aftercooler. Whereas a standard refrigerated dryer is only capable of handling cooler incoming air, the ADA series of high temp fridge dryers are capable of handling inlet compressed air temperatures of 180F degrees.
The Pneumatech ADA-50 is meant to be paired with a 10hp or 15hp reciprocating air compressor and can be placed right next to the air compressor to save on space. Pairing an ADA-50 with a 10hp compressor will result in a 38ºF pressure dew point and will produce a 50ºF dew point if paired with a 15hp piston compressor.
The pressure dew point display provides an accurate dew point reading for increased dryer information. The display also includes a power on symbol, fan rotation symbol, and a dew point alarm. An automatic service indicator will also display when the air dryer reaches its appropriate service interval.
Refrigerated air dryers are the most common and cost effective way to remove moisture and condensation from compressed air systems. Refrigerated dryers (aka fridge dryers) take the warm compressed air that is discharged from the air compressor and cools it rapidly, letting vapors condense into liquid that can be drained out.
