Energy-saving dual control refrigerated dryers, 1300 to 3000 cfm

Designed for continuous operation and cost savings

Kaeser TH - TI series refrigerated dryers are designed for continuous operation and allow operators of larger compressed air stations to take advantage of significant energy savings. The dryer system not only features extremely low pressure drop, it also employs an innovative refrigerant compressor that continuously adjusts its power consumption: when air flow falls, so does power consumption!

  • Reliably dry compressed air from 1300 to 3000 cfm
  • For working pressures up to 232 psig
  • Air-cooling or water-cooling
  • Optional OR microfilter for extremely high air purity

Your advantages

  • Additional savings in part-load operation:
    Depending on the temperature to which compressed air is cooled, a cycled solenoid valve varies the size of the compression chamber of the refrigeration compressor, which consumes correspondingly less power in part-load operation.
  • Extremely low differential pressure:
    Generously sized stainless steel plate-type heat exchangers ensure low pressure drop to further enhance system efficiency.
  • Industrial quality control cabinet:
    Kaeser energy-saving refrigerated dryers are manufactured to EN 60204-1 and tested for electromagnetic compatibility according to the German EMC Act (EMVG). In contrast to equipment that is only tested to VDE 0700, they are designed to meet the stringent requirements of industrial processes.

The perfect partner: the KCF oil/water separator
KCF condensate filters

Our tip: Take advantage of cost-effective, legally-compliant treatment of condensate before drainage into the regular wastewater system with KCF oil/water separators.

Energy saving potential of KAESER dryers

Energy-saving dryers from Kaeser only consume energy when they're actually drying compressed air. Thanks to the Kaeser energy-saving system, electrical power consumption rises and falls in proportion to the air flow volume during part load operation.

Savings example: TI 521 – with an assumed average volume of 40 %

Annual energy savings: € 5,513/year
TI 521 power consumption: 2.6 kW
Power consumption of comparable dryer with hot gas bypass control: 6.2 kW x 93 % = 5.8 kW
(5.8 kW - 2.6 kW) x 8760 h/year x € 0.20 /kWh

Environmental CO2 reduction: 16.5 t CO2/year
165 t CO2 / 10 years (1000 kWh power = 0.6 t CO2 in emissions)
