Parker Zander ZMX Heatless Desiccant Air Dryer

Parker Zander ZMX Heatless Desiccant Air Dryer

Parker Zander Modular Heatless Adsorption Dryer series advanced aluminium forming technology makes ecodryMAX typically half the size and weight of traditional twin tower dryers, taking up less floor space and making installation easy.



  • Parker Zander ecodry Heatless Adsorption air dryers ZMX heatless desiccant air dryer utilise high tensile extruded aluminum columns containing twin chambers each filled with desiccant materials which dry the compressed air as it passes through.
  • One chamber is operational (drying), while the opposite chamber is regenerating using the Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA or Heatless) method of regeneration.
  • A small volume of the dried compressed air is used to regenerate the desiccant bed by expanding air from line pressure to atmospheric pressure, removing the water adsorbed by the desiccant material, and therefore regenerating the dryer.
  • Using Parker Zander Microfilter pre and after filters will further increase the reliability of the dryer.
  • The modular design eliminates the need for complex valves and interconnecting piping which is used in conventional twin tower dryers.
  • Parker Zander’s unique modular construction means that extra banks can easily be added if air demand increases.
  • Multibanking of dryers enables individual banks to be easily isolated for routine maintenance work, or even a decrease in air capacity requirements (e.g. night shift). This means no interruption to your clean, dry air supply.


  • Protects your compressed air system – A moisture-free system will increase the reliability of production processes, giving better quality finished products and preventing damage to the compressed air system.
  • Reliable performance – Long-life pneumatic cylinder valves provide reliable switching, and high-quality desiccant ensures stable dewpoint performance.
  • Energy-efficient – With low differential pressure and a reliable energy management system cost-effective operation is assured.
  • Modular design – ZANDER’s unique modular construction means that extra banks can easily be added if air demand increases.
  • High quality clean dry compressed air – Used in conjunction with ZANDER Microfilters, ecodryMAX will deliver air at -40F (-40C) pressure dewpoint as standard, in accordance with ISO 8573.1 :2001 class 3.2.1.
  • Compact, lightweight construction – Space saving design is easy to install.
  • ‘Snowstorm’ desiccant filling – Consistent airflow and long desiccant life.
  • Corrosion protected – Corrosion inhibited by alocroming and dry powder epoxy painting for an extended lifetime.
  • Efficient regeneration – High quality desiccant with minimum purge requirements.
  • ‘Ecotronic’ energy management system – Controls dryer cycle times to match plant requirements.
  • User-friendly control and monitoring – A range of easy to read and operate control panels to suit your requirements.
  • Quiet operation – Reduced blowdown noise.
  • Options – A wide range of options are available including:
    • Remote fault indication
    • Re-transmission of dewpoint display
    • Ability to interface with building management systems via remote communications
  • ZANDER can specify a system to match your exact requirements.
  • -4ºF (-20ºC) and -100ºF (-70ºC) pressure dewpoint options are also available for general purpose and critical applications.


The use of adsorption dryers with heatless regeneration is preferred in the following applications:

  • Capacity range of up to 1000 scfm
  • Higher pressure ranges
  • High inlet temperatures
  • Installation in explosion proof areas
  • Use under ground
  • Portable applications
  • Hazardous locations (pneumatic controls)
