Catalog excerpts

Dirt, water vapor, and other impurities enter the compressor with the atmospheric air. During the compression process, oil (liquid and vapor) is also commonly introduced. If not removed, these contaminants may cause costly production problems such as equipment contamination, accelerated tool wear, and product rejects. Kaeser offers a complete line of air treatment products to prepare compressed air for even the most stringent requirements. Selecting equipment Ambient air temperature, humidity, and quality directly influence the effective- ness of air treatment equipment. Your application...

Aftercoolers and separators Atmospheric air entering a compressor contains water vapor. The compression process heats the air enough that the ingested water vapor is still in the vapor state when air is discharged from the compressor. As the air travels downstream, the vapor cools and condenses into liquid. If not removed, it contaminates the entire compressed air system and causes corrosion. Corrosion in turn leads to air leaks, pressure drops, and scale formation. Products and processes are ruined, resulting in lost production time. Aftercoolers are an economical way to remove water vapor...

Condensate drain traps Once the moisture is collected, it must be discharged from the system. Kaeser offers a variety of drain traps to remove moisture automatically from separators, receiver tanks, intercoolers, aftercoolers, dryers, filters, and drip Kaeser's Automatic Magnetic Drain (AMD) and Eco-Drain series of auto- matic demand drains offer superior energy savings and excellent reliability. Designed only to open when condensate is present, they lower your electrical costs by conserving compressed air for intended uses. The Eco-Drain series is ideal for filters including our Filtered...

Filters Filters provide the additional protection from contaminants that degrade process equipment and decrease air tool performance. Filters remove solid particles, oil aerosols, moisture, and oil vapors. Adding filters to the compressed air system will save considerable costs in process downtime, cleaning tools, and repairing equipment. The right filter combination plays a key role in preventing unwanted dirt and oil from reaching end products like food and beverages. Filters up to 780 scfm include bayonetted or screw on housings for easy element replacement. Other features include easy...

for applications requiring pressures up to 1000 psig. They include seam welded stainless steel cores for greater durability and corrosion resistance. The HP filters are well suited for PET bottling systems and should be installed downstream of high pressure compressors or boosters and dryers. They are also available in all filter grades except HTA; see previous page. Kaeser Activated Carbon Towers (KAT) Single Tower Desiccant Dryer (KDF) Kaeser Activated Carbon Towers (KAT) remove oil vapor and odor. They are used where oil vapor and odor may contaminate end products such as food, drugs,...

Desiccant dryers provide extremely dry air for processes that are very moisture sensitive or applications where the compressed air system is exposed to very low ambient temperatures. Dew points may be as low as -100°F. The desiccant material adsorbs moisture in the air until it reaches its maximum capacity at which point it must be regenerated. The method of regeneration is what differentiates the types of desiccant dryers (KAD, KED, Kaeser Heatless Desiccant Dryers (KAD) Also called "pressure swing" desiccant dryers, KAD dryers regenerate without an external source of energy. At rated...

Kaeser Heated Blower Purge Dryers (KBD) Kaeser Blower Purge Dryers (KBD) use little or no purge air by introducing atmospheric air and heating it. Heating ambient air lowers its relative humidity, increasing its ability to hold moisture. The hot, dry ambient air regenerates the desiccant. KBD’s provide excellent energy savings by eliminating the need to use costly compressed air for purging. Sizes: 500 – 4300 scfm Heated blower purge desiccant dryer Hybritec Combination Dryer This innovative compressed air drying solution combines the energy savings of a refrigerated dryer with the low dew...
