New Revolutionary Rotary Drum Dryer to be launched by the end of 2017

New Atlas Copco air dryer technology guarantees stable PDP of -40°C/-40°F at almost zero energy cost

Wilrijk, Belgium, October 2017 – Atlas Copco, the world’s leading manufacturer of air compressors and treatment systems will start production of their new revolutionary rotary drum dryer by the end of 2017.

Product Product Release Category 2017

Many industries expect air dryer solutions to efficiently deliver a Pressure Dew Point (PDP) of -40°C/-40°F at the lowest operational cost. A dryer’s efficiency is normally defined by two factors: the electrical consumption and the amount of compressed air purged. Today most existing air dryers can’t live up to the demand for a stable PDP of -40°C/-40°F and low power consumption.

The Atlas Copco Oil-free Air division has developed an innovative new technology to improve reliability and power efficiency for a PDP of -40°C/-40°F. After years of development and testing, the team proudly presents the new MDG rotary drum dryer – the most groundbreaking air dryer to provide stable and guaranteed PDP of -4O°C/-40°F at almost zero energy cost.

The new simplified design has no heating elements, no blower and no loss of compressed air and therefor guarantees the highest energy efficiency. With a total power consumption below 0,2kW in all operational conditions, the new MDG air dryer is a groundbreaker for the compressed air market. Philip Ernens, President of the Oil-free Air division, comments:

“With the MDG dryers we now can provide the ultimate energy-efficient solution for customers who are looking for high quality of compressed air and who are interested in the lowest total cost of ownership”

In addition to the highest energy-efficiency, there are fewer moving parts which means less maintenance cost and more reliability. Another advantage of the simple design is that it takes up less space in the customers facility. Atlas Copco’s new MDG sets the new standards for air dryer technology.
