JAC Series After Coolers

JAC Series After Coolers

The series of air blast aftercoolers are designed to meet the rigorous needs of industry. Compressed air from the majority of air compressors is contaminated with airborne solids, water vapour & in most installations, burnt carbonised oil from the compressor. These contaminates, if not removed can cause high reject rates on end products.

Contaminated air also creates air wastage by causing valves, couplings and drain traps to jam open & increasing expensive air losses to atmosphere.

 The JAC series of aftercoolers reduces the compressed air temperature to within 10 Deg C. of the ambient cooling air. By the forcing the cooling (ambient) air over the finned tube stack that contains the hot compressor air, and reducing the compressed air temperature to within 10 Deg C. of ambient temperature.

This causes the water and oil vapour to condense. This condensate is collected in a separation area that can be drained with an Artic 22 timed auto drain.

Activated Alumina

Activated Alumina

Activated alumina, there are many micro-paths, so the specific surface is large. It can be used as absorbent, desiccant and catalyst carrier. It is also a kind of trace water desiccant and the pole-molecular absorbent, according to the absorbed molecule polarization, the attachment force is strong for water, oxide, acetic acid, alkali ect. The capacity is stable. It has high strength, low abrasion, no soften in water, no expansion, no powdery no crack. It can be widely used in the deep drying of cracked gas, ethylene and propylene, hydrogen-generation, air separation, instrument air drying and fluorine treatment for H2O2, also in the absorbing pollution material, such as H2S, SO2, HF and paraffin in the waste gas, especially in the drinking water defluorinate.

Molecular Sieve

Molecular Sieve is an alkali alumina silicate; it is the sodium form of the Type A crystal structure. Molecular Sieve has an effective pore opening of about 4 angstroms (0.4nm). Molecular sieve will adsorb most molecules with a kinetic diameter of less than 4 angstroms and exclude those larger. Such adsorb-able molecules include simple gas molecules such as oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide and straight chain hydrocarbons. Branched chain hydrocarbons and aromatics are excluded.

Sepura Oily Water Separators

Liquid contaminates are generated throughout compressed air systems. To protect down stream equipment the condensate must be removed and discharged from the air system in an environmentally friendly and responsible manner. 

Condensate must be purified to strict legal levels before the water content from the condensate may be discharged into a drain. Discharging of contaminated condensates not only damages the environment, but is illegal and leaves operators and CEO’s open to substantial personal fines.

An advanced low cost solution, Sepura offers a genuine alternative to more expensive machines. Simplicity in design, carbonless system construction and operation makes the purchase cost the lowest in class. The innovative design makes the unit easy to maintain and service, with the Silexa™ filtration system it makes oil removal simple and cost effective

When treating stable Poly Glycol stable solutions we have a solution. The Sepura D series has the active ingredient that simply eats the oils leaving clear water behind for legal disposal

Compressed Air Auditing  - Reducing Your Energy Costs - has become a vital tool for any plant engineer who wants to  reduce compressor air wastage and energy  consumption.

Artic Driers has the biggest compressed air audit equipment capability in Southern Africa and has invested heavily in Air Audit Equipment over recent years. All equipment used is calibrated on a regular basis 

With our twelve channel DS500 and some of 8 off CS 325 data loggers, we have the resources to provide data in multi axis graphs as well as Excel format to clients on multiple compressor houses simultaneously.  REPORTS - All our reports contain the graphs as well as a concise report / overview.  


We are able to log data  and provide graphics on the following;

  • Air Flow
  • Air flow cumulative
  • Ultrasonic liquid flow measurement 
  • Air Pressure
  • Air differential pressure
  • Air flow velocity
  • Air temperature
  • Air dew point and R.H.
  • Power in amps & kWhrs
  • Oil Carry Over Monitoring
  • CO and CO² SO² content

Air & vacuum audits are invaluable in assisting new equipment selections prior to a new purchase or identifying problem areas. Air audits can be undertaken on high pressure lines as high as 340 bar as well as vacuum systems, the only exception being wet vacuum lines.  Dew points as high a +50 and as low as -100°C are achievable


ULTRASONIC LEAK DETECTION - With a variety of tools we are can  establish the compressed air leaks in most plants with a high degree of accuracy enabling  a measurable corrective action plan to be implemented. Our in-house developed systems allow us to capture the severity of the leak, note its dbA rating as well as give an accurate values in volume and rand cost, of the volume of the c/air lost. A report detailing each leak is issued, as well as a consolidated Excel spread sheet.

Any cost incurred in using our services is very quickly recouped in power savings and reductions in wastage.

Permanent Instrumentation Packages. For larger systems, a permanent instrumentation package can be installed to provide a monitoring system that tracks the air systems  flow and pressure performance 24/7. Set alarm points can  be set  using user friendly software. The cost of a compressed air audit is cheap when compared to the cost of compressed air wastage and sub-standard compressed air treatment. The ROI period will be counted in days not months!

We are also able to offer the CS-iTEC CSM-2G system that allows for off site monitoring of any compressed air system. The CSM 2G sytems allows for information to be sent to a SCADA system as well as the engineers desktop or any other mobile device. This system can operate using ZigBee WiFi system.

High Pressure Filters

High Pressure Filters

Our high pressure filters are manufactured to exacting European standards and conform to PED 97/CE directives. The aluminium housings are robust and can be fitted with electronic external timed automatic condensate drains or intelligent level controlled systems.

Long filter element life is assured by the use of pleated cartridges with multi layer filtration media. This method of construction increases the filtration area, while the stainless steel internal & external support tubes retain the filtration media under extreme air/dirt load conditions. Filter elements are colour coded to make element identification easy for operators.

The range has a maximum operating pressure of 50 Bar G with particle removal down to 0.01 micron and oil removal to 0.01ppm.
