The Unbreakable TX Air Dryer

The Unbreakable TX Air Drier

The design of any air dryer is critical to its life span.   Many dryers, especially the smaller dryers for air compressors with capacities from 0.45 to 2.5 m³/min are built to a price.

tx_dryer-120x140.jpgThere are a number of components that make up a dryer. They are a Freon compressor, a heat exchanger to cool the compressed air to 3°C and the finned condenser coil with its electric fan.

It’s the condenser coil and the fan that invariably causes a dryer’s premature failure.  The fan, on many small capacity dryers has a bush, not a bearing.   Atmospheric dust & dirt cause it to fail, the fan motor burns out, the fan stops, &  the Freon system gets excessively hot. The high gas temperature now burns out the Freon compressor winding as well. 

Result, a dryer that you will need a new Freon compressor, a new fan motor, plus the cost of the gas and the technicians time and travel expenses and you may  as well go and purchase a new dryer!  If the fan bush does not fail, the close fin design of the condenser is the next cause of failure.  As dirt blocks the cooling air flow through the condenser the gas temperature rises, the fan switch overworks, the bush works harder along with the fan motor. Either an elevated gas temperature “kills” the Freon compressor or again the bush fails!  Result, a busted dryer that will cost more than it’s worth to repair.

The TX Series of air dryers is a “bomb” proof air dryer that will work in any  site conditions that it is  exposed to… 

Why, because the design is radically different.   It has a static condenser.  It’s the same as your  wide spaced freezer condenser panel at  home. An evaporative cooler with no fan.  That means no bush,  no close fin spacing, so dirt cannot accumulate on the condenser coil. There are only 3 moving parts on the dryer, an electric condensate drain, the Freon compressor and a rotary dew point indicator.

The Freon circuit is very different to a “normal” dryer.  The gas leaving the compressor is passed into the static coil for cooling by  atmospheric heat  exchange, then to the air to  Freon exchanger, this cools the hot Freon and re-heats the c/air  ready to  enter the air line. The gas then passes to the main air to  Freon exchanger to  cool the compressed air to  dew point. From there it returns to   the compressor.  It’s the most reliable dryer ever built in the last 4 decades.

It is the ultimate in compressed air dryer reliability in the international market
