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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
In short, Cerades™ really is a quantum leap in compressed air performance. Find out how it can boost your air system too…
