With its patented i.HOC (integrated heat of compression dryer), Kaeser has succeeded in launching a desiccant dryer that utilises 100% of the available hot compressed air from the second compression stage to directly regenerate its desiccant. The advantages of this full-flow regeneration make the i.HOC particularly efficient and streets ahead of the competition. This guarantees stable pressure dew points, even in unfavourable conditions, such as low final discharge pressure, high ambient temperatures or reduced utilisation. The integrated Sigma Control 2 controller also adjusts the i.HOC to any change in operating conditions, for example variations in compressed air flow, working pressure or ambient temperature.
Dew point regulation ensures stable pressure dew points
For particularly sensitive compressed air applications, Kaeser offers optional pressure dew point regulation for all FSG series, oil-free rotary screw compressors with an integrated i.HOC. Should the cooling conditions deteriorate, perhaps due to rising ambient temperatures, the dew point regulation registers the resulting pressure dew point increase and boosts the dryer’s regeneration potential accordingly. This ensures that the pressure dew point is optimised. Thus, the dew point regulation is ideal for air cooled compressors. It offsets the daily and seasonal fluctuations in the cooling air temperature, thereby achieving constant pressure dew points.
Three in one – compressor, compressed air dryer and heater
Apart from the i.HOC, the water-cooled FSG boasts a highly efficient, integrated heat recovery system, which helps to use the available compression heat twice: once in the i.HOC to dry the compressed air and again via the integrated heat recovery to heat process or hot water up to 90°C. An automatic, fail-safe cooling system protects the compressor – and thus the compressed air supply – from excessively high water temperatures.
Savings have never been easier
The highly integrated design of the FSG i.HOC saves both space und costs for an external dryer pipework, without compromising on access for service technicians. Saving money has never been easier.
Established in 1919 as a mechanical engineering workshop, Kaeser Kompressoren is a family-owned business and today is one of the world’s leading compressor manufacturers and compressed air systems providers. Kaeser’s production centres are located in Coburg (main plant) and Gera, Germany. The company has approximately 6000 employees worldwide.
Kaeser’s comprehensive product range comprises stationary and portable rotary screw compressors, stationary and mobile reciprocating compressors, vacuum pumps, rotary blowers, filters, dryers, air tools and accessories. Furthermore, Kaeser’s state-of-the-art compressor control systems with advanced IT technology take compressed air efficiency to the next level and beyond. Both users and the environment therefore benefit from the consequent energy-savings.
Subsidiaries and authorised partners in over one hundred countries ensure that users are able to enjoy all of the benefits that the very best in compressed air engineering has to offer. Key markets include the EU, the United States, Latin America and the Asia-Pacific region. Kaeser owes its enviable reputation not only to the exceptional efficiency and quality of its products, but also to its reliable field service. More recently, the other industry-leading services offered by the company – such as operator models for compressed air stations, concepts within the framework of Industry 4.0 and predictive maintenance – have increasingly moved to centre stage.
Kaeser’s many years of strong growth and expansion are directly attributable to its passion for innovation and strict quality standards. Both are driven by the hard work and dedication of its employees, whose expertise, combined with ongoing professional development, keep them attuned to the very latest technology. The company’s opening-up of key global markets in recent years has also created many additional jobs and secured existing ones, both in Germany and around the world.
The company is headed by Thomas Kaeser, Dipl.-Wirtsch.-Ing, grandson of the company’s founder, and Tina-Maria Vlantoussi-Kaeser, Dipl.-Wirtsch.-Ing.
