How to achieve year-round optimal energy efficiency with your refrigeration dryer
From the hot humid weather of the summer months to the colder weather of the winter months – constant changes in temperature can have a large impact on how efficiently your compressed air refrigeration dryer works. This is of course largely impacted by the technology behind your dryer. In this blog post we therefore look at how the latest advances in compressed air refrigeration technology can assist you in achieving year-round optimal energy efficiency.
When it comes to operating a fluid-injected (or oil-injected) rotary screw compressor, selecting the right cooling fluid and ensuring its on-going integrity are both essential to the continuing reliability, efficiency and overall lifetime of the compressor and its wearing parts.

Bill, a Maintenance Manager of a logistics centre, recently contacted us to price up a new compressed air system. He needed to double his facility’s output and assumed he needed to buy more air compressors to meet the higher demand for compressed air this would create. After a few questions we determined a new compressor might not be necessary. In this blog post we look at the steps taken after Bill’s enquiry that assisted us in not only saving Bill the cost of purchasing new compressors, but also helped him lower his existing energy consumption.
