Refrigerated air dryer series
The FLEX Series refrigerated air dryer is designed to efficiently remove liquid from compressed air. Phase change material (PCM) harnesses latent heat produced as it converts from solid to liquid or liquid to solid. While latent heat is being absorbed or released, the process is isothermal (no temperature change) and the energy from the heat is used to change the form of the material. The PCM has high latent heat properties, meaning it absorbs a lot of heat at constant temperature as it melts or freezes and stays colder for longer periods of time. Designed with a 3-in-1 heat exchanger, the PCM encapsulates the refrigeration and compressed air circuits. This allows the phase change material to stay colder for longer periods of time, cycling the refrigerant compressor less often than conventional energy saving designs.
