Beyond the Ink: How Compressed Air Dryers Can Save…

Posted by AVP on Apr 24th 2023

As experts adept in compressed air dehydration solutions, we understand the importance of compressed air dryers in the printing industry. Compressed air is used in printing equipment to operate pneumatic cylinders, air-powered tools, and other components.

However, the moisture and contaminants in the compressed air can damage the printing equipment, leading to costly repairs and production downtime.

That's where compressed air dryers come in, providing clean and dry compressed air for printing equipment to operate smoothly and efficiently.

In this article, we will explore the importance of compressed air dryers in the printing industry, and the benefits they provide to printing companies.

We will also introduce some of the compressed air dryers available here in Air & Vacuum Process Inc., such as Aircel's ABP Series, Aircel HRS-L Series Dryers, and Aircel Ultrapac 2000 Series Dryers, and highlight their features and benefits.

The Importance of Compressed Air Dryers in the Printing Industry

Compressed air is widely used in printing presses, bindery and finishing equipment, and other related machinery. Compressed air serves various functions, such as operating pneumatic cylinders, powering air tools, and even providing air for the printing process itself.

However, the air drawn from the ambient atmosphere contains moisture and contaminants that can cause damage to the equipment, affect print quality, and increase maintenance costs.

That's why compressed air dryers are crucial in the printing industry.

By removing moisture and contaminants from the compressed air, these dryers prevent corrosion, reduce downtime, and prolong the lifespan of the equipment. They also ensure consistent print quality by providing dry air that prevents ink smudging, bleeding, and other issues.

Benefits of Compressed Air Dryers

Compressed air dryers provide several benefits to printing companies, including:

Preventing equipment damage: Moisture and contaminants in the compressed air can cause corrosion and damage to the equipment, leading to costly repairs and downtime.

Improving print quality: Dry air prevents ink smudging, bleeding, and other print quality issues.

Reducing maintenance costs: Dry air reduces the need for maintenance and repairs due to equipment damage caused by moisture and contaminants.

Saving energy: Dry air improves the efficiency of the equipment, reducing energy consumption and operating costs.

Prolonging equipment lifespan: Dry air reduces corrosion and other damage, prolonging the lifespan of the equipment.

Compressed Air Dryers Available at Air & Vacuum Process

As an authorized distributor of all Aircel and Van Air Systems, Air & Vacuum Process offers a range of compressed air dryers for all your compressed air purification needs. Let's take a closer look at some of the Aircel compressed air dryers available:

Aircel's ABP Series

Aircel's ABP Series is a blower purge heat reactivated dual tower regenerative air dryer equipped with an Energy Management System (EMS). The EMS provides users with energy savings and reliable performance.

The ABP Series utilizes a high-efficiency blower to intake ambient air for the heat regeneration cycle, reducing the amount of compressed air needed. This results in a significant decrease in energy consumption during the drying process.

One of the most impressive features of the ABP Series is its remarkably low average process air use of only 2% of the dryer's rated capacity, making it one of the most energy-efficient air dryers on the market today. With Aircel's ABP Series, users can enjoy optimal performance, cost savings, and peace of mind.

Aircel HRS-L Series Dryers

Aircel HRS-L Series Dryers use desiccant to effectively remove water vapor from the compressed airstream, ensuring the compressed air remains clean and dry.

In the twin tower design of the HRS-L Series, one tower dries the compressed air while the desiccant in the other tower is being regenerated, allowing for continuous and uninterrupted operation.

These dryers are commonly called "heatless" or "heated". Heatless dryers operate without any external heat source for regeneration, instead utilizing the heat generated during the drying phase, also known as the "Heat of Adsorption".

Aircel Ultrapac 2000 Series Dryers

The Ultrapac 2000 Series utilizes the heat generated during the drying phase, also known as the "Heat of Adsorption", for regeneration. This innovative technology makes it a highly energy-efficient option for those seeking an effective solution for compressed air purification.

The Ultrapac 2000 Series is designed to provide users with a complete purification system, ensuring that their compressed air is free from contaminants and moisture.

The system includes an automatic condensate drain and silencer, offering a user-friendly experience. Additionally, the prefilter and afterfilter work together to provide optimal air quality, ensuring that the compressed air is pure and safe for use.

With Aircel's Ultrapac 2000 Series, users can expect top-of-the-line performance, reliability, and efficiency. Whether for industrial or commercial use, this advanced air drying system is an ideal choice for those seeking a comprehensive solution for their compressed air purification needs.

In conclusion, compressed air dryers play a vital role in the printing industry by ensuring that the compressed air used in printing equipment is free of moisture and contaminants. This results in better print quality, reduced equipment damage, and lower maintenance costs.
