Hybrid Refrigerated / Desiccant Dryers

Desiccant dryers are commonly used to bring the pressure dew point well below freezing (commonly -40°F) in order to prevent moisture from precipitating in the compressed air system and production equipment. In most cases, the need is actually seasonal, and a refrigerated dryer is perfectly capable of meeting air quality needs for most of the year – and with much lower operating and maintenance costs. It is possible to install separate refrigerated and desiccant dryers in series for these applications. Better still are combination or “hybrid” dryer systems that combine dryer technologies into a high performing dryer with even lower operating costs.

No conventional desiccant system comes close to KAESER Hybritec dryers when it comes to lowest total life cycle costs. This is mainly due to Hybritec’s lower energy consumption and the fact that these versatile dryers become even more cost-effective as energy prices increase. Hybritec dryers also require less maintenance – further reducing cost of ownership.
