PSE and SPS Refrigerant Air Dryers
For a manufacturing facility reliant on compressed air, Water Contamination can directly impact safety, productivity and efficiency. Compressed air treatment is therefore essential and for non-critical uses of compressed air, the Refrigerant Air Dryer is an ideal choice.
Parker Hannifin has introduced two new refrigerant dryer series, to bring its complete range of low-pressure refrigeration dryers up to date, using the new low GWP (global warming potential) refrigerant gas R513A.
SPS (Starlette Plus-E) = 14cfm to 353cfm
PSE (Polestar Smart-E) = 424cfm to 6,357cfm
Both series are designed for efficient removal of water vapour from compressed air in all industrial and general-purpose applications requiring a pressure dew point as low as 3°C.
LOW Global warming Potential
With a GWP as low as 573 compared with the current refrigerants R134a (GWP 1430) and R407C (GWP 1774), the new ranges are fully equipped to meet the requirements of the European F-gas regulation EU 517/2014, in terms of GWP reduction and impact on the environment.
For the end-user, investing in a solution that works with a low GWP refrigerant is not only an environmentally sound decision but also guards against potential disruptions (associated with higher GWP gases), such as shortages, price increases and future bans.
Energy-saving capabilities available as standard on all models, and variable speed fans on larger models (from PSE460), together with low-pressure-drop heat exchangers, reduce both the adsorbed power and the running costs.
Highly efficient micro-channel condensers minimise refrigerant charges on all units, with a reduction of about 40% compared with traditional condensing solutions.
A modern range of controllers, with touch screen versions available from 777cfm (PSE220) and enhanced communication capabilities, make the units easy to use, and the data easy to access.
Industry 4.0 Modbus protocol available on all units as standard, and IIoT capabilities from model PSE460, via MQTT protocol or optionally OPC UA, simplify remote supervision and connectivity for data management, maintenance, and servicing needs.
