Parker Hannifin is launching the Moduflex Dry Air System that is described as a complete air preparation system combining air filtration and drying to cut the cost of dry air. The system is designed to increase the efficiency and reliability of compressed air systems, with integral pre-filtration to 0.1micron and further filtration after the air is dried, thereby preventing degraded desiccant from passing downstream.
Operation and maintenance is simple and cost-effective, as the Moduflex system combines long-lasting quick-change filters and dryer combi-cartridges. The quiet-running unit can be serviced in situ in under 15 minutes due to multiple in-line inlet and outlet connection ports, which helps to keep maintenance costs down. Furthermore, the system offers service intervals of up to 12,000 hours and a built-in electronic service indicator notifies maintenance personnel when attention is needed.
This unit is able to clean and dry compressed air down to -40degC pressure dewpoint as standard, enabling ISO 8573.1 Class 2 to be met simply and cost-effectively, while a pressure dewpoint of -70degC is also achievable to meet ISO 8573.1 Class 1 for critical applications.
The Moduflex Dry Air system is suitable for a wide range of industrial applications, such as CNC machine tools, co-ordinate measuring machines, laboratory instrumentation, and packaging, process and automation systems.
A number of additional features can be specified with the system, such as remote indication of servicing requirements, a wall-mounting kit for securing the dryer vertically or at a 45-degree angle to a wall or canopy, or the facility to pipe away the regeneration exhaust air for silent operation. With IP66/NEMA 4 protection as standard, the compact and lightweight product can be safely floor-, bench- or wall-mounted almost anywhere.
