IBP Series industrial grade dryers are 100% efficient at delivering full supply-side compressor capacity. As compressed air generation tends to be the most costly utility within a facility, IBP Series users benefit from the ability to purchase a less expensive air compressor and, a 20% reduction in air compressor energy consumption. Eliminate purge air loss to align supply-side equipment with demand-side requirements to optimize your air system.
Filtered compressed air enters on-line desiccant-filled, drying Tower 1 through valve (A). Up-flow drying enables the desiccant to strip moisture from the air stream. Clean, dry compressed air exits through (E) to feed the air system. Tower 2 (shown in regeneration mode) with valve (B) closed, depressurizes to atmosphere through muffler (C). Valves (D & F) open and the heater turns on. The high-efficiency blower draws ambient air and feeds it through the heater. The ambient airstream passes through valve (F) and flows downward through the moist desiccant in Tower 2, collecting water vapor before exiting valve (D). Once the desiccant is fully desorbed, the heater turns off. Valves (F & D) close and Tower 2 is repressurized. At a fixed time interval, valve (B) will open and Tower 2 will be placed on-line to dry the airstream and valve (A) will close. Operations will switch and Tower 1 will be regenerated.
