Air Dryers

The main function of a compressed air dryer is to remove any water or vapour from compressed air. If left unattended, water or vapour in the compressed air can cause a multitude of problems. Our extensive range of air dryers can optimise your air compressor performance by enabling it to operate more efficiently. Let Cleveland Compressed Air Services help you evaluate your business goals and find the perfect air compressor dryer solution to suit your individual needs and requirements.

Compressed Air Dryer Products

Compressed air purification equipment must deliver uncompromising performance and reliability while providing the right balance of air quality with the lowest cost of operation.  Many manufacturers offer products for the filtration and purification of contaminated compressed air, which are often selected only upon their initial purchase cost, with little or no regard for the air quality they provide, the cost of operation throughout their life or indeed their environmental impact.

Compressed air dryers are used in a number of industries such as manufacturing and engineering. When purchasing purification equipment, delivered air quality, the overall cost of ownership and the equipment’s environmental impact should always be considered. As one of Australia’s leading providers of compressed air products and services, Cleveland Compressed Air Services can help you find the air compressor dryer that can help take your business to the next level.

Frequently Asked Questions

A compressed air dryer is a pneumatic machine that is intended to be used in conjunction with an air compressor. Air compressors naturally form water due to fluctuating temperatures caused by the compression process. An air dryer acts as a necessary filtering system to remove any excess water vapour that may damage the surrounding machinery or the worksite.

A refrigerant air dryer, also known as a refrigerated air dryer, is one of the simplest, most reliable and easiest to operate devices available. The design of this type of air dryer can vary depending on the amount of water vapour that needs to be removed, but they generally come in two different forms - cycling and non-cycling. Cycling dryers offer a more energy-efficient solution by determining power from the airflow rate and moisture content of the air, while non-cycling dryers run continuously. This type of air dryer can be used in many different industries, but it's often found in buildings with HVAC systems where the moist air creates an ideal environment for bacteria to grow and thrive.

Regenerative or desiccant air dryers tend to be on the more expensive side, but they are more effective than other types of air dryers. A desiccant dryer functions using moisture-absorbing chemicals to strip water vapour from the air in an air compressor. It does this by passing hot and humid air over the wet material until it reaches an equilibrium temperature.

This process removes more water than just heating the moist air alone because both heat and humidity can be transferred to the material at once. The drying time for a desiccant air dryer machine is also shorter than other types of air systems, making it ideal for production line settings where time is money! The reliability of desiccant dryers makes them especially good for moisture or temperature-sensitive work.

A membrane air dryer uses a filtration system to remove contaminants and water from compressed air. This process of separating liquid from the vapour is known as "vapour recompression". Membrane air dryers work by drawing in moist, warm, and contaminated air that passes over an absorbent material. The membranes then allow for the separation of heat and moisture from the gas stream resulting in drier, cleaner and more pressurised gas being delivered to downstream equipment such as air filters or turbines.

Membrane air dryers can be used for various industrial processes such as food dehydration or chemical production.  They provide a reliable, energy-efficient and space-saving alternative to some other air dryer types. This type of air dryer is often found in pharmaceutical plants, paper mills, and textile factories.

When choosing your air dryer, it is important to consider factors such as:

  • The maximum pressure of your air compressor
  • The maximum airflow rate of your air compressor
  • The maximum temperature of your air compressor
  • Your budget
  • The nature of your work

If you’re unsure which air dryer is most suitable for your needs, our team is on hand to help you choose the perfect one.

Compressed air dryers are intended to be used in tandem with air compressors. They are often used in applications where water vapour can damage machinery and equipment. A compressed air dryer can be used in various situations, including medical applications, food and beverage industries, construction and more. At Cleveland Compressed Air Services, our machines are available in a wide range of sizes and configurations to suit virtually every application requirement.

We are proud to offer a wide range of compressor air dryers suitable for a variety of applications and industries. All of our air dryers offer benefits such as:

  • Competitive upfront costs
  • Minimal maintenance costs
  • 24/7 emergency maintenance services
  • Durable and effective operation
  • High energy-efficiency levels
  • And more

Pressure dew point is the temperature at which water vapour in the air becomes saturated with water and condenses to form liquid dew. The higher the dew point, the more moisture there is in the air. It is a common measurement to assess how much moisture will be present in an environment over time.

Flow rate is the amount of fluid that passes through a given point at a specific time. Technically, it's the volumetric flow rate of air which means how much volume flows past a point per unit time. This can be measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM). The more CFMs, the more air your unit will disperse throughout your space.
