For high-quality, dry air downstream from
your oil-free screw and centrifugal compressors, Atlas Copco’s MD
rotary drum dryers meet your needs perfectly. Using heat of compression – which
requires negligible energy input – they are the perfect solution
for a wide range of applications requiring pressure dewpoints as low as
-25°C/-13°F. MD dryers are also often selected for applications
where refrigerated dryers are suitable (+3°C/37°F PDP) due to
the significant energy savings they offer. You benefit from a reliable
process, impeccable end products, and the lowest total cost of ownership.
Compared to other desiccant dryers that can consume up to 15% of the compressed
air, the MD dryer guarantees 100% flow capacity at the output.
• Maximum energy savings – The energy consumption of
MD dryers is negligible: only 0.12 kW (water cooled version). MD dryers
by no loss of compressed air, zero purge by design, low pressure drop
and no pre- and after-filtration requirements. These factors contribute
to additional energy savings and increased efficiency. A Variable Speed
Drive (VSD) dryer version is available to match VSD compressors.
• Low maintenance – The combination of an easy to service vessel,
minimal maintenance downtime and long service intervals reduces your maintenance
• Environmentally friendly – MD dryers are totally oil-free and use no
Freon or CFCs, and a minimal amount of desiccant (only 5-10% of conventional
adsorption dryers). 95% of all components can be recycled, and the units have
very low noise levels.
• Small footprint – The small footprint of MD dryers means they take
up minimal space in your facility.
