The right grade of air treatment

Air treatment using a refrigeration dryer (+3 C pressure dew point)




Dairies, breweries

Food and semi luxury food prod.

Very clean con- veying air, chem- ical plant

Hospitals, breathing air

Weaving mach., photolab, pharma

Paint spraying, powder coating

Packaging, control and instrument air

General works air, quality sandblasting

Shotblasting

Low quality shotblasting

Aeration for waste water systems

No quality requirements

For air mains endangered by frost: treatment with a desiccant dryer (down to-70 C dew point)


Medicine prod., dairies, breweries

Optics, microchip and (semiluxury) food prod.

Breathing air

Process air, photolabs, pharmaceuticals

Breathing air

Very dry applications endangered by frost: paint spraying, very fine pressure controllers
