Established in 1966, PARAMINA SA deals exclusively with Compressed Air.
Driven to the third generation of ownership as a manufacturer of screw compressors, high pressure piston compressors and auxiliary compressed air systems suitable for industrial/general purpose air, gas (nitrogen, helium, argon), marine and offshore, as well as breathing air (diving, firefighting, oil and gas/H2S protection, motorsports, defence (air force, navy, army) and paintball/shooting sports applications.
Compressed air contains large quantities of moisture and other contaminants.
This moisture and contaminants must be removed from compressed air, in order for the final quality of air to meet the requirements of EN12021 breathing air directive.
Cleaning of the air is achieved inside breathing air filter (BA), through absorption by molecular sieve (moisture adsorption – drying) and active carbon (oil hydrocarbons and oil odour adsorption).
When molecular sieve is saturated, BA cartridge must be changed.
However, Molecular Sieve’s absorbance capability is affected by compressed air’s temperature, which increases or decreases according to the ambient temperature as well.
The higher the air temperature, the more it decreases BA cartridge’s lifetime.
“CRYO” refrigerated dryer, decreases compressed air’s temperature to 3oC (dew point), liquifying most of the moisture which is then drained automatically to ambient.
By installing ”CRYO” before compressor’s BA filter, only a small quantity of moisture reaches BA cartridge for adsorption, thus increasing the life span of the filter cartridge.
Advantages of refrigerant dryers:
- Maintenance and operation costs are low
- Removes particles, water droplets, and oil vapours from the compressed air system
- High reliability and extends the life of your compressor
- Increases BA Cartridge life span
