Atlas Copco Introduces R410A Refrigerant Dryers For GA Compressors

Atlas Copco Compressors LLC, a business of Sweden-based Atlas Copco AG, has debuted its R410A (ID 95-285) refrigerant dryers designed exclusively for the company's GA, GA+ and GA VSD 50-125 HP oil-injected screw compressors, which are used in applications including textiles, printing, packaging and other applications. According to Atlas Copco, the dryers use an energy-efficient refrigerant, the company's patented Saver Cycle and an air-to-air heat exchanger to provide high-quality dry air while minimizing power usage.

"Compared to conventional dryers with similar cooling capacity, the integrated ID 95-285 dryers reduce direct power consumption up to 40 percent, even at full load," said Bob Baker, senior marketing support specialist, Atlas Copco. "These significant energy savings are achieved through the introduction of R410A refrigerant and by optimizing the design of key components, including the refrigerant compressor and heat exchanger with low pressure drop."

Other features available with the R410A dryers include an optional DD/PD integrated two-stage air filtration system combined with the condensate separator inside the unit canopy; and an integrated dryer retrofit kit for previously designed installations.
