Compressed air contains contaminants such as water, oil and particulates which must be removed or reduced to the acceptable level based on specific application requirements.
Standard ISO 8573-1 specifies air purity/quality classes for these contaminants. Humidity (water vapour content) is expressed in the terms of Pressure Dew Point (PDP) where Dew point is the temperature at which air is 100% saturated with moisture.
Our range of air dryers ensure protection of your downstream systems and processes in a reliable, energy-efficient and cost-effective way.
Refrigeration Air Dryers
Omega Air RDP refrigeration dryers have been designed to effectively separate water from the compressed air thus lower pressure dew point all the way down to +3oC.
Drying is achieved on the principle of cooling which takes place inside highly efficient and ultra compact 3 stage heat exchanger. In the first stage (air-air heat exchanger) hot and humid inlet air is being precooled by the cold outgoing air.
In the second stage (air-refrigerant heat exchanger) intensive water condensation takes place due to cooling the air.
All condensed water is separated from the main compressed air stream in the third stage by integrated demister. A proven and robust design enables efficient and reliable operation, fast installation and simple maintenance.

Adsorption Air Dryers
An adsorption air dryer is an unique and highly efficient type of dryer that produces compressed air. The adsorption method of drying generates compressed air with very low dew point, from -20oC to -70oC.
Omega Air adsorption dryers are designed for continuous separation of water vapour from the compressed air thus reducing the pressure dew point. A wide range of adsorption air dryers are available to choose from depending upon the application and your industrial requirement.
The range of Adsoprtion dryer includes the following
- Modular type Adsorption air dryers
- Twin tower heatless desiccant air dryers
- Twin tower Heat reactivated desiccant air dryers
Sorbeo type adsorbents are highly porous materials suitable for use in many adsorption applications. Adsorbents are available in several pack sizes. For detail specification please refer to technical datasheet of specific adsorbent.
