The HPC Kaeser Secotec thermal mass dryer series are the ultimate in energy saving dryers, these dryers save energy because the refrigerant system is shut down during breaks, periods of low demand and downtime - the control system operates without preset run-on periods. The integrated thermal mass ensures that the system is ready for operation at all times. SECOTEC dryers use flow-optimised piping so pressure losses are therefore kept to a minimum, which means that maximum system pressure can be significantly reduced.
This leads to considerable savings, as each 1 bar reduction represents a 6 % decrease in power consumption and also means less air is lost through leakage. A further advantage of SECOTEC dryers is that they exceed the energy efficiency criteria required to be eligible for Enhanced Capital Allowances (ECA's) so further savings can be made.
