Air Powered Services presents the KAESER SECOTEC Series of refrigerated air dryers designed to provide energy savings, optimal reliability and user-friendly operation.
In contrast to most refrigeration drying systems, the SECOTEC Series uses a highly efficient cycling system, SECOTEC Control that ensures the dryer’s refrigeration circuit consumes power only when necessary, resulting in minimal energy consumption.
Energy savings all day, every day
The high capacity thermal mass is cooled down to cut-out temperature by the refrigeration circuit, extracting the heat from the compressed air that flows through the heat exchanger. As soon as the temperature of the thermal mass rises to the cut-in temperature, the refrigerant compressor starts and cools it down again, a feature that considerably enhances efficiency compared to non-cycling controllers.
Minimal pressure drop for greater energy savings
The air/air and refrigerant/air heat exchangers are equipped with generously sized smooth-flow copper piping to ensure minimal pressure drop. SECOTEC dryers do not require a pre-filter, which means that costly pressure drops caused by additional filters are avoided.
Dependable, energy saving condensate drainage
The intelligent level sensing control in the ECO-DRAIN prevents pressure loss when the condensate is drained from the air system. When the collector tank is full, the level sensor opens a diaphragm valve to drain off the condensate without pressure loss.
Efficient stainless steel condensate separator
A deflector plate forces the compressed air that streams into the separator into circular motion. The air then flows through a stainless steel wire mesh that ensures 99.9% water separation from the air, allowing the required pressure dew point of +3°C to be reliably maintained. The stainless steel separator tank is completely corrosion-resistant.
Industrial quality control cabinet for increased safety
SECOTEC refrigerated air dryers are EN 60204-1 compliant and tested for electromagnetic compatibility in accordance with applicable EMC standards. Unlike equipment conforming to VDE 0700, SECOTEC dryers conform to a strict industrial standard and are therefore equipped with a control cabinet to IP 54, a control transformer and fuses for the control and power circuits.
The control panel can be viewed at a glance while a dew point trend gauge integrated within the panel monitors dryer operation. System features such as Emergency/Off switch, and LEDs to indicate ‘Thermal Mass Active’ and ‘Refrigerant Compressor ON’ provide superior ease of operation and further increase system reliability.
