CompAir Australasia has just announced the launch of the FX series range of energy efficient refrigerant compressed air dryers. With flow capacities from 0.5 to 90.10 m3/min, the new range can satisfy the requirements for clean and dry compressed air for a wide variety of applications and industry sectors.

Air treatment is a prerequisite wherever clean and dry compressed air is required. It is a necessity for critical applications such as those found in the medical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage sectors. It is also very important for any application that relies on compressed air as part of the production process.

Compressed air is saturated with water as well as other atmospheric contaminants in addition to dirt and oil. Untreated compressed air not only adversely affects the end product being manufactured, but it also jeopardises the integrity of associated components, equipment and processes.

To effectively and energy efficiently meet the requirements for dry compressed air, CompAir has developed the FX series range of refrigerant compressed air dryers.

Reliable, efficient and environmentally friendly removal of moisture, oil, and moisture borne contaminants from compressed air is possible with the FX series.

For flow capacities up to 1.6 m3/min the FXS series models are pure and simple! They produce pure, clean and dry compressed air from a simple, yet robust and sophisticated refrigerant dryer design.

Dependable high quality compressed air is assured thanks to excellent dew point performance under all conditions. These models are ideal for point of use applications such as in hospitals and laboratories as they are both quiet in operation and have a small footprint. A static condenser and waste heat recovery system further ensures an energy efficient solution with the lowest operating costs.

The larger FXR series models, for flow capacities starting at 2.5 m3/min, utilise an advanced stainless steel plate heat exchanger as well as advanced separation and refrigeration technology for optimum life cycle costs as well as dependable and energy efficient operation.

For absolute control, monitoring and diagnostics on the larger FXT series models, the System Control Monitor II can be incorporated. This LED display provides key information such as chiller inlet and discharge refrigerant temperatures allowing for the ultimate energy efficient refrigerant compressed air dryer solution.

The new FX series from CompAir are easy to install and simple to connect. Flow capacity ranges from 0.5-90.10 m3/min. R-134a or R-407c refrigerant is used in all of the new FX series models for a truly environmentally friendly solution.

To accompany the launch of the FX series refrigerant compressed air dryers, CompAir has launched a new iPad App. The ‘FX Dryers’ App allows the user to calculate the size of refrigerant compressed air dryer they require and provides more information on the new FX series compressed air dryer range.

The FX Dryers App is free to download from the iTunes store. Click here to download.
