Desiccant Air Dryer Control: Seeing Isn’t Always Believing | Compressed Air Best Practices

Desiccant Air Dryer Control: Seeing Isn’t Always Believing | Compressed Air Best Practices | Industrial Compressed Air | Scoop.it
Many thousands of dollars of annual electrical savings are being achieved worldwide using special purge reduction controls on desiccant air dryers. These controls reduce the expensive purge air that must flow through the dryer to regenerate the desiccant beds.
Ken Bean's insight:

Dryers built by Pneumatic Products Corporation (PPC) are the only dryers on the market which utilize in bed capacitance probes to monitor the moisture front movement directly in the desiccant bed of the dryer.  The probes never require calibration and guarantee a lifetime of accurate readings thus eliminating the inherent problems of controlling a dryer with a dew point meter.
