Pressure Vessel Testing
All new and existing compressed air installations must conform to both the requirements of the Pressure Equipment Regulations and Pressure Systems Safety Regulations (PSSR 2000). All pressure systems larger than 250 bar/litres must have a “written scheme of examination” and a statutory inspection in accordance with the written scheme. A “Written Scheme of Examination” is a list that details the inspection periods, safety devices and components associated with the system’s pressure vessels. We can carryout Air Receiver Tests and Written Schemes on all compressors.
Why a refrigerated compressed air dryer?
Refrigerated compressed air dryers are one of the most common used types of air dryers. They are simple in design, need very little maintenance and are relatively cheap.
A refrigerated compressed air dryer is the standard choice if you’re shopping for a dryer and don’t have special requirements, like an ultra-low dewpoint. They don’t need much or any special maintenance and if you buy a quality one, and install it properly, it’s basically set-and-forget.
How does it work?
As the name implies, a refrigerated air dryer works by cooling down the air (like a refrigerator). The warm wet air enters the dryer, where it is cooled down to about 3 degrees Celsius. All water vapor that was in the air condenses into water. Much like your window does on a cold day. The liquid water is then removed from the compressed air by a water-trap.
After that, the cold air is re-heated to room temperature. Since a lot of water has condensed into water, the air is now much dryer.
The cooling is done in the same way as your freezer and fridge are cooled. In a separate circuit, liquid refrigerant is evaporated in the evaporator, to cool down the warm compressed air. The air is cooled, while the refrigerant gets warmer. The refrigerant is compressed by a small compressor and cooled again in the condenser.
