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.
