Combination dryers

HYBRITEC – Cut costs with the best of both worlds

HYBRITEC compressed air dryers (*) combine the extremely low pressure dew points of desiccant dryers with the energy-saving functionality of modern refrigeration dryers. The result: outstanding flexibility and huge energy cost savings. This means that the desiccant dryer can simply be switched off during periods where more moderate DTPs are required – such as in the summer months.

  • Reliably dry, cost-effective compressed air from 12 to 150 m³/min (DTE - DTL series models)
  • PDP level can be set between −40 °C and +3 °C
  • Numerous configuration options
  • Optional special features (e.g. working pressure up to 16 bar, integration within container module, automatic summer/winter mode switching)

Your advantages

  • Maximum energy efficiency:
    Kaeser combination dryers only require some 50 % of the energy required by heat regenerated desiccant dryers and – incredibly – just 20 % of the energy used by heatless regenerated units.
  • Cost-effective and precise, individual configuration options:
    Combination dryers can be configured for virtually any application from standard models in our dryer range – a solution that saves money and ensures outstanding operational reliability.
  • Extremely low service costs:
    The lower load on the desiccant dryer within HYBRITEC dryers means desiccant replacement intervals can be as infrequent as every 10 years – and moreover, they require significantly lower quantities.

* Dryers from this series contain the fluorinated greenhouse gas R-513A.

The perfect partner: the AQUAMAT oil/water separator
AQUAMAT condensate treatment system

Our tip: Take advantage of cost-effective, legally-compliant treatment of condensate before drainage into the regular wastewater system with AQUAMAT oil/water separators.
