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.
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.
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.
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.
Separator – Installed at the base of the aftercooler it will remove
greater than 99% of the condensate.
Design and Construction – Designed, built and tested where applicable
to any of the major international pressure vessel codes.
