WBC – Water Cooled Aftercoolers

ABC – Air-Cooled Aftercoolers

Compressed air flows into the ABC afterccooler and enters the copper heat exchanger coils. Cooling air is blown across the heat exchanger by a motor driven axial fan. The fan can be driven by either an electric or a pneumatic motor, depending upon your needs. As the air cools, the moisture condenses. When the air reaches the water separator, centrifugal motion causes the condensation and other contaminants to hit the walls and drip away to the drain.

Features & Benefits

  • No Cooling Water Required – Because the unit is air-cooled, there is no need to supply expensive cooling water. Also the need for supplying water piping and connections is eliminated saving more money as well as valuable space.
  • High Efficiency Heat Exchanger – The coil has copper tubes and aluminium fins. The size and weight is reduced when compared to conventional aftercoolers which saves on the amount of floor space used.
  • Limited Condensation Build Up – Because the compressed air outlet that leads to the separator is located beneath the heat exchanger there is virtually no accumulation of condensate or sediment within the cooler therefore eliminating the need for manual draining.
  • High Efficiency Separator – Installed at the base of the aftercooler it will remove greater than 99% of the condensate.
  • Approved Design and Construction – Designed, built and tested where applicable to any of the major international pressure vessel codes.
