5 reasons why a Cerades™ dryer will improve your compressed air system performance
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
Some inventions change everything. Atlas Copco’s Cerades™, a new desiccant for compressed air dryers, is such a revolutionary innovation. The first ever solid, ceramic desiccant, Cerades™ gives you better air quality, lower energy and service costs, and health and environmental benefits.
1. You save big on energy costs.
Traditional adsorption dryers force compressed air through towers filled with thousands of loose desiccant beads. In Cerades™ dryers, the air flows straight through solid tubes for a no-resistance flow and significantly lower energy costs.
2. You get better air quality.
Loose desiccant beads bounce around in the drying towers, which causes them to decompose over time. This can compromise your dew point. Cerades™ lasts longer to give you better air quality and extended service intervals.
3. No desiccant dust to deal with.
The decomposing beads of traditional dryers release a fine dust into your air system. This dust is not only a health and environmental hazard but also creates additional filtration and maintenance costs. Cerades™ eliminates this dust issue altogether.
4. You enjoy installation and operational flexibility.
Cerades™ is vibration-resistant and can be mounted horizontally. This allows for easy installation and continuous operation in demanding applications such as the transportation industry.
5. You get more space.
Cerades™ dryers are smaller because they can handle a higher airflow. This reduced footprint gives you more free space and flexibility in your compressor room.
