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.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
