|□ Full-flow regeneration
||□ Partial-flow regeneration
|↓ Regeneration area: Hot air removes moisture from the desiccant.
|↑ Drying area: Moisture is drawn into the desiccant from the cold air.
The i.HOC (Integrated Heat of Compression Dryer) system uses 100 % of the heat of compression from the second compression stage for drying purposes (full-flow regeneration). This heat, which is produced in any case, is therefore effectively available at zero cost.
- No additional energy input for the drying process
- Higher regeneration potential than with partial-flow regeneration dryers
- Full performance, even with low compressor load
The advantages of full-flow regeneration become obvious, especially with increased coolant temperatures. Kaeser rotary dryers achieve outstanding drying results even without additional electric heating of the regeneration air.
