HOC dryers

New line of heat-of-compression (HOC) dryers


A new line of heat-of-compression (HOC) dryers provides flexibility, reliability, and energy efficiency in a low-profile package. The dryers turn wasted heat into useful energy, resulting in clean, dry, oil-free air at a fraction of the cost of traditional desiccant dryers. By using heat produced during the compression process, the HOC dryers can deliver instrument-quality air using the same energy as a 150-W light bulb. Patented heat exchangers, constructed with stainless steel, provide optimal performance under the harshest operating conditions, and the automatic drain bypass feature ensures removal of condensate.
