The Atacama CT (Carbon Tower) is a three stage dryer with the CT added after the adsorption dryer. Clean dry air passes through the third stage and adsorbs gases and aerosols dependant on requirements and which zeolites are selected. This makes the Atacama extremely flexible and can be used in many specific applications.
CLASS ‘0’ Oil Free
To achieve Class ‘0’ the air needs to be oil free, this can be achieved with an ATACAMA-CT. With the third tower filled with high quality carbon. Even on a fully oil lubricated screw, vane or piston compressor the ATACAMA-CT will achieve better than ISO 8573-1:2010 Class 1.
This will give a total concentration of oil of less than 0.003 mg/m3, which is significantly less than is normal in atmospheric air in our home and work places. Suitable for food production, medical air and anywhere that oil free air is specified.
The versatile ATACAMA-CT was first designed as a Breathing Air Purifier and to conform to International Breathing Air Standards. In Europe BS EN12021 & EN12021:2014 and CGA G-7.1-2011 Grade D in the USA.
ATACAMA PLUS Dewpoint control
The ATACAMA dryer has fitted as standard a digital controller and a dewpoint control function. This energy saving system requires only a dewpoint hydrometer probe to be added on the dryer to give full dewpoint control with the dewpoint LED displayed in the top right corner of the control panel.
This smart controller can be added to all makes of dryer as an energy saving option.
