Refrigerated Air Dryers

Champion’s CRN Series refrigerated air dryers are engineered to benefit you today and tomorrow from the tradition of durability that is Champion. Quality components and engineering excellence meld to ensure you of a stable ISO Quality Class 4–5 pressure dew point. These exclusive compressed air preparation packages combine reliability, cutting-edge design, and innovative packaging into a single space saving unit. The air quality delivered from a CRN Series dryer may define the difference between moderate and superior results from your plant’s processes or systems.

Champion’s CRE Series air dryer automatically cycles the refrigeration compressor on and off in response to inlet load conditions. As the inlet air load is reduced, the refrigeration compressor cycles off, providing you with savings.  The load matching design saves energy and reduces your costs.

SBD10 thru SBD75:

Saylor –Beall 10-75 scfm models feature a patented static condenser design established as the quietest in the industry.  In operation, cool compressed air exiting the evaporator at a 39ºF dew point pre-cools the warm compressed air as it enters the dryer.  Inlet air temperature is reduced to save space and energy.  The traditional air-cooled condensing unit is eliminated.  Coil spacing is increased 400% to resist fouling from dirt and rust.

Saylor-Beall 100-300 scfm models feature traditional refrigerated drying technology.  In this flow range, they deliver a space-saving package with established component designs.  These full-featured dryers achieve a high-rate of heat transfer with non-fouling, smooth-tube copper heat exchangers.  The hot gas bypass valve precisely controls the flow of refrigerant.  Once coupled to capillary tube sensors, Saylor-Beall is able to deliver stable pressure dew point temperatures and avoid freeze-ups – even under no-load conditions.
