2 Adsorption Drying: why? Modern industries require compressed air that is increasingly filtered with low dew point and condensate. Today, the equipment is more sophisticated as there are requirements that compressed air impurities free from the usual content. The atmospheric air intake contains contaminants, dirt particles and humidity. This can lead to premature deterioration of your pneumatic equipment and increase the risk of the product spoilage. Multiple air treatment solutions OIL AND DUST FILTRATION Network filters: treatment of residual oil and dust particles. Depending on the filtration level, our range of ALUP filters capture and eliminate: Particles down to 0.0 micron (smoke, dusts, etc.). Oil concentration down to 0.05 ppm. WATER SEPARATION Air drying: elimination of water vapour that can potentially condensate in your compressed air system. The drying solution that suits your needs best: The cyclonic water separator eliminates water already in a liquid state, from the compressed air. The ADQ refrigeration dryer that eliminates water down to a pressure dew point of 3 C. The AD adsorption dryer eliminates any risk linked to moisture due to a dew point that can reach 70 C. Cyclonic () water separator MF ADQ SF AD/40 - AD/70 DF AD/40 - AD/70 AF
3 Adsorption dryer AD Water vapour contained in the air is corrosive and can affect your compressed air network, solenoid valves, pneumatic equipment etc. Dust and other contaminants can reduce the working life of your pneumatic equipment, resulting in premature breakdowns and higher maintenance costs. In addition, these contaminants can mix with your raw material (paint, pneumatic handling, etc.), and increase the possibility of product spoilage. To preserve your equipment and guarantee total quality, ALUP offers a complete range of air treatment solutions. We can recommend superior air quality for less operating costs. CONDENSATE TREATMENT Our automatic drain offers you a choice of a float drain; electronic drain or a level detection drain to ensure zero air loss.

4 AD adsorption dryer: Moisture free air Adsorption drying produces dry compressed air which eliminates the risk of contamination from residual water vapour contained in the compressed air. Dew points from 40 C down to 70 C, depending on the application, guarantee delivery of dry, clean air that will satisfy even the most sensitive applications. Its compactness will make installation easy in any industrial facility, or close to a workstation that requires specific air treatment. It s a global solution for any demanding air treatment. Running principles The adsorption drying principle is based on the ability of the desiccant material to adsorb water vapour in the compressed air. During the drying phase, water vapour is adsorbed into the surface of the desiccant. At the same time, the other tower is purged by a small quantity of dried air passing over the wet desiccant material. The resulting moisture is vented in to the atmosphere. After the pressurization, the unit is then ready for a new drying phase. Coalescent filter MF and high efficiency coalescent filter SF remove the dirt particles and protect the dessicant material against any contamination. This giving an extends the operational life. After the AD dryer, the air is filtered through a dust filter DF, which eliminates desiccant dust. Principle Drying phase: Wet air from the compressors passes through the inlet filters () which remove the oil and enters in to tower A. The desiccant contained in it adsorbs the water vapor molecules. After a fixed (timer) or variable time (sensor) the 3 way valve (2) deviates the air flow from tower A to tower B and it becomes the operative tower. Regeneration phase: During the drying phase in the tower A, some dry air is deviated into the top of tower B, extracting the trapped water vapor from the desiccant material. During this phase, tower B is open to the atmosphere, allowing the purge air to expand. The silencers (3) on the outlet ensure quiet operation. Pressurization phase: Once regeneration has taken place and tower B is pressurized, the 3 way valve (2) changes the air flow again.

5 AD (Timer) Electronic Timer Control AD (Sensor) Dew Point Management System 2 Developed with high quality components, AD dryers guarantee a stable dew point of -40 C, due to the use of an optimized desiccant volume. ( -70 C available as an option). A wide vessels ensure a low air speed and a longer contact time. Purge phases are controlled by an electronic timer on models AD/Timer. With a similar design to AD/Timer, the AD/Sensor version is also available where the drying phase is dew point dependent and is controlled by an electronic dew point management system. This controls the dew point and can reduce the drying air consumption resulting in significant energy savings. The two inlet coalescent filters MF - SF and the outlet dust filter DF, have to be mounted on the air distibution line. THE FILTERS ARE INCLUDED BUT NOT PRE-MOUNTED. 3 AD/Timer 4 5 Wide vessels for optimum air speed and reliable drying.

8 Regeneration Phase: How to decrease your consumption? Regeneration phases One feature of the adsorption drying technology is the small amount of air required to eliminate water previously adsorbed by the dessicant material during the air drying phase. This process ensures a constant dew point of 40 C and this optimum air quality. For these reasons, there are two types of AD dryers available: AD/Timer Constant purge air calculated to operate in the most demanding conditions. Purge air flow is fixed at 5% of the AD dryer max capacity. AD 650 Timer Regeneration phase On/Off As the air volume is fixed, the same volume is used even in case of low air demand. AD/Sensor Purge airflow is variable and based on achieving a constant dew point for significant energy savings. The electronic Pressure Dew Point control (Sensor) extends the drying phase of the dryer's cycle. It is done by measuring PDP of compressed air on the dryer outlet and only switching the columns when desiccant in the active tower is saturated. The regeneration part of the cycle stays fixed. As most of the time compressor and dryer runs < 00% load, this results in significant extension of the drying time and a reduction in purge air consumption. Typically, the extra investment in Pressure Dew Point control is paid back in a few months by savings made on dryer running costs. AD 650 Sensor Dew point control variable regeneration Dew point control of the regeneration air volume: a guaranteed return on investment.
