Balston compressed air dryers

Balston Compressed Air Dryers

Fluid Controls are leading suppliers of Balston compressed air dryers. Parker Balston, part of the Parker Hannifin Group, offer superior coalescing filtration technology. These compressed air dryers feature an innovative membrane system which delivers clean, dry compressed air to dewpoints as low as -40°C.

Balston air dryers provide low cost operation and minimal maintenance and have been engineered for easy installation, operation and long term reliability. These are important features in heavy duty machinery and hard-wearing applications.

Features of a Balston air dryer

There are numerous benefits of a Balston compressed air dryer. Below are just a few of the main features:

• Reliable, efficient and economical alternative to pressure swing and refrigerant dryer technologies.
• No electricity is required, lowering operation costs.
• Prevent freeze-ups.
• Explosion proof.
• Silent operation.
• Dewpoints as low as -40°C.
• No desiccant to change.

Balston air dryers are available for operation in a range of temperatures and should be chosen dependent on application requirments. Balston compressed air dryers are also designed to operate 24/7, with minimal maintenance. This provides the most efficient operating environment for all applications and industries.

How does a Balston air dryer work?

Balston compressed air dryers feature innovative technology and highly engineered components that allow them to operate effectively in a wide range of applications, affordably. These compressed air dryers use water vapour from the compressed air supply, which passes through hollow fibres of the membrane.

Dry air product is then redirected along the length of the fibres, sweeping out the water vapour, which is vented to the atmosphere to produce clean, dry air. A compressed air flow rate and pressure controls the power of the membrane.
