TMC Air Dryers 

We ensure supreme air quality

When air is compressed, the concentration of moisture and other contaminants increases. If allowed to remain in the system, this corrosive mixture has a damaging effect on all pneumatic and air operated equipment, causing the risk of unnecessary corrosion, high wear and tear, reduced equipment lifetime and breakdowns.

TMC Air Dryers

Refrigerant Air Dryers – Preventing Vapor

The purpose of air dryers is to prevent vapor from forming within the pipe system. Refrigerant air dryers are among the most common types of air dryers due to their ease of maintenance and their cost-effectiveness. They’re highly suitable for air-drying applications where a pressure dew point of + 3 degrees C is the lowest achievable.

Once the compressed air is cooled and water is removed, the air is reheated to approximately ambient temperature. This ensures no more vapor forms within the pipe system.

TMC refrigerant air dryers are equipped with a hot gas bypass control, which ensures a constant dew point even under different load conditions. Both air-cooled and water-cooled air dryer versions are available.

 

Desiccant Air Dryers

Desiccant air dryers work on the principle of moisture always migrating to the driest medium possible. Therefore, water vapor is removed from compressed air by passing it over a bed of adsorbent desiccant material. When the air gets in contact with the adsorbent material, water vapor transfers from the wet air to the dry desiccant.

However, adsorbent materials have a fixed adsorption capacity. Once this capacity is reached, they must be regenerated or replaced. Therefore, to provide a continuous supply of clean, dry compressed air, adsorbent dryers utilize two towers/receivers of desiccant material. At any one time, whilst one chamber is on-line, drying the incoming compressed air, the other is either off-line, being regenerated or is re-pressurized, ready to come on-line.  

There are two types of desiccant air dryers: Heatless and Heated. The most common is the heatless type, especially for marine and offshore applications where high ambient temperatures is a challenge. 

Membrane air dryers

TMC membrane compressed air dryers are characterized by their compact design and low purge-air requirement. They are easy to install and maintenance free. Electrical connection is not required. 

These units are often recommended for point-of-use applications, near explosive hazards, or in remote locations without power supply. Membrane air dryers can deliver pressure dew point down to -40 °.

Whether refrigerant, desiccant, membrane or combinations are the right fit for you, we can provide what you need. Contact us for a proposal, and we’ll get right back to you.  

 

Certifications and Quality

TMC is certified according to the quality standard ISO 9001, the environmental standard ISO 14001 and HSE standard ISO 45001, and is certified by all of the marine classification societies.
