Features & Benefits
Hertz HDA Heatless Desiccant Air Dryers provide constant -40 oC pressure dew point. These dryers are designed to supply clean and very dry compressed air for critical applications. Pre-filters and after-filters are supplied along with Hertz Heatless Air Dryers to keep the air stream clean and maintain the integrity of the desiccant medium. A very reliable electronic controller makes sure that the dryer operates perfectly all through the service life of the dryer.
HDA Heatless Desiccant Dryers are equipped with very special valves and desiccants in order to perform very well and have one of the lowest pressure drops available in the Market.
Hertz HDA Heatless Desiccant Air DryersPrinciple of Operation
The twin tower design allows for continuous adsorption of water vapor from compressed air by using the hygroscopic desiccant with high crush strength and a high surface / volume ratio. Drying is accomplished by passing compressed air through one desiccant bed adsorbing moisture while the other is being simultaneously regenerated with the expanded purge air.
Regeneration of desiccant is accomplished without the use of heat. The wet bed is dried by diverting a small portion of the super – dry air from the outlet at near atmospheric pressure. The purge flow rate is adjustable to suit the specific outlet conditions (desired dewpoint).The super dry air flows in a counter direction through the wet bed, sweeping all the water vapour previously absorbed by the desiccant.
PLC is standard
HRD Desiccant Dryers has a very reliable electronic controller makes sure that the dryer operates perfectly all through the servicelife of the dryer. Touch screen PLC is capable of showing the cycles as well as the valves which operate on real time. It also shows the dew point (if applicable).
User friendly multi-langual PLC helps the end users understand the operation system any field issues easily.
Hertz uses a mixture of adsorption media in its heatless range of desiccant dryers to achieve consistent dewpoint. Activated Alumina, Molecular Sieve and Silica Gel are used in varying ratios depending on the application.
