GSA's compressed air treating equipment turning Top air quality
GSA’s generation-II, energy-saving refrigerated air dryer is a cycling system designed to save energy in a simple and efficient fashion. It is relatively simple, compact and highly reliable compared to products which use variable-speed drive (VSD) designed to control the RPM of the refrigerant compressor and a brushless DC (BLDC) motor or those with phase change materials (PCM) or thermal mass.
The aluminum heat exchanger of the generation-II, energy-saving refrigerated air dryer plays a role of thermal mass which has great heat transfer performances. Since the product is made with a single material, it has no thermal resistance. Therefore, cooling energy stored in the heat exchanger can be utilized efficiently. It generates the greatest efficiency at the lowest costs when load is low or the compressed air use pattern is intermittent with a long length of time by maximizing the use of cooling energy accumulated in the heat exchanger.
Compared to other heat exchangers, an aluminum heat exchanger is greater in terms of accumulated heat under the same mass due to high specific heat. With greatthermal conductivity, it displays great cooling effects of compressed air with high and stable dew points. Under same mass, the machine is 2.3 times and 1.9 times greater than copper and stainless steel respectively in terms of cooling capacity. With great thermal conductivity, furthermore, it ensures stable operation according to load changes.

High-efficiency Aluminum Heat Exchanger
With a high-efficiency aluminum heat exchanger, GSA refrigerated air dryer offer larger heat-exchange area and performance guarantees of stable dew point than any other brands adopting other types of heat exchangers such as shell & tube and plate ones. Made with a single material, it has no thermal resistance and a little risk of corrosion or freezing burst.
Efficient Condensate Separation Technology
It separates a large amount of condensate produced during heat exchange efficiently by increasing the volume of a separator. Therefore, this machine offers stable performances and dew points even under diverse load and pressure conditions.
Minimizing the loss of compressed air with low differential pressure
The occurrence of differential pressure was minimized by offing a large heat-exchange area and a sufficient cross-sectional area for compressed air flow. The efficiency of the compressed air system can be enhanced due to low differential pressure after increasing heat-exchange efficiency and minimizing resistance. In addition, operating costs can be reduced.
Simple and Smart Controller
The simple but functional controller helps users observe the exact dew point and check energy-saving status through the ECO lamp. In addition, this multifunctional controller offers a 4.3” color TFT touch panel (optional) and various mobile communication features such as WiFi and BT.
Highly reliable drain without loss of compressed air
The efficiency of compressed air facilities was enhanced by applying a magnetic float-integrated AUTO DRAIN which guarantees no loss of compressed air. The magnetic float ensures great operating performances. In addition, decrease in drain performances or failure resulting from oil or diverse substances in the air was minimized.
Efficiency maximization with the use of a high-efficiency condenser
To ensure stable performances at high temperature or under unfavorable circumstances, grooved copper tube and corrugated split fin were applied. In addition, a condenser which has a high coefficient of heat transfer due to great fin adhesion after complete and uniform tube expansion was adopted. Therefore, it ensures stable operation in diverse situations such as a high-temperature region.
