Heat of Compression Dryers
  



Clean, Dry Oil-Free Air:
Ingersoll Rand heat of compression (HOC) dryers provide energy efficiency, flexibility, reliability and instrument quality air at operating costs well below those of typical desiccant dryer designs.

  

  

Energy efficiency
 
    HOC dryers utilize the heat already generated by the air compression process, which is normally considered waste
 
    Low pressure drop desþ conserves energy by permitting the air compressor to run at lower pressures
 
    Highly efficient, patented stainless steel water-to-air heat exdrangers provide optimal performance
 
    The Standard water-cooled HOC model consumes less than 150 watts, whidr is equivalent to the energy consumed by one light bulb
 


HOC at work saving you energy
 
    1 - Hot air from one or more compressors enters the dryer.
 
    2- Heat energy from the hot air removes moisture from the desiccant being regenerated.
 
    3 - Hot air enters the heat exchanger and is cooled causing moisture to condense.
 
    4 - Condensate is removed from the air through a moisture separator.
 
    5 - Air flows through the drying vessel, where any remaining moisture is adsorbed by the desiccant
 
    6 - Air exits through a filter providing high quality, instrument grade compressed air.
  
Flexibility to accommodate your application

Ingersoll Rand recognizes that each customer's application is unique. That is why we designed our HOC dryers with flexibility to accommodate:

 
    Air-cooled or water-cooled applications
 
    Ingersoll Rand or other oil-free compressors
 
    Existing compressors through field upgradable/ retroflt options

The HOC dryer was also specifically designed with a low profile to facilitate ease of installation and maintenance as well as promote safety.

 
    Critical components are within easy reach for safe and simple maintenance
 
    Low overall height fits areas with low overhead clearance
  


Reliability You Can Count On

Tried-and-true components, combined with innovative tedrrology, yield reliable HOC dryers.

 
    High performance switdring valves are desþed for high temperature compressed air service
 
    Highly efficient, patented stainless steel water-to-air heat exchangers provide optimal performance under the harshest conditions
 
    Long lasting, high quality desiccant ensures reliable dew point performance
 
    CNo-loss drains with auto-bypass ensure condensate removal
  
 
Superior features, solid dependability

Performance. Ingersoll Rand HOC dryers deliver consistently clean, dry air for critical processes.

 
    Instrument quality air for a variety of applications
 
    Optional Advanced HOC model with Smart Control provides -40"C (-40'F) pressure dew point from 0% to 100% load
 
    Unique twin-cooler design minimizes dew point and temperature flucluations
 
    Advanced HOC model can be used with muþle compressors, resulting in a reduced footprint and lower installation costs
  
  
Full-featured controller comes standard

The new full-featured controller on Ingersoll Rand HOC dryers is user-friendly to set up and intuitive to operate.

 
    Interface: Simple navigation, icon-based interface with backlit LCD display, integrated toucþad and multiple languages.
 
    Operation: Precise control of valve positioning real-time dryer function monitoring and alarm logging
 
    Indicators: Multi-point critical temperature tracking, maintenance alerts and key alarms
 
    Communications: Modbus via RS-485 interface and compatibility with Ingersoll Rand system automation
  
  
 
How smart control works

Reliable, high quality air-lngersoll Rand Advanced HOC dryers use Smaft Control to adapt dryer operation to system and, o environmental changes, ensuring a constant -40'C (-40"F).

Smart Control continually scans environmental and system parameters and make adjustments to minimize temperature fluctuations and provide air at a constant dew point.

  
  
Why smart control

The problems created by having moisture in your compressed air system can range from an annoyance to wreaking havoc on your equÍpment and end products.

 
    Premature wearing and scoring of surfaces
 
    Rust and conosion in tools, piping and equipment
 
    Damaged instruments
 
    Spoiled paint surfaces
 
    Increased scrap rate
 
    Unsafe or unpleasant work environment
