After Cooler Heat Exchangers
Water or moisture is not desirable in the transmission lines of an air compression system. Water carried through the lines washes away lubricating oil from the tools the compressed air is running. This causes the tools to operate sluggishly & increases the need for maintenance. The effect is compounded in high speed tools, where wearing surfaces are limited in size & excessive wear reduces efficiency by creating air leakage.
Further problem results from the decrease of temperature caused by sudden expansion of air at the end. This low temperature creates condensation, which freezes around port and valves & impairs efficiency. These conditions can be minimized by removing the moisture from the air directly after compression, before the air enters the distribution system.
The compressed air discharged from compressor is hot. Compressed air at these temperatures contains large quantities of water in vapor form. As the compressed air cools this water vapor condenses into a liquid form. As an example if an after cooler is not used, a 200 scfm compressor operating at 100 psig introduces 45 gallons of water into the compressed air system each day.
Overview of After Cooler Heat Exchangers:
Gireesh are considered as one of the most illustrious After cooler Manufacturers from India. We offer after cooler that is fabricated implementing latest production techniques. After coolers are specialized heat exchangers that are used in multi-stage compressor systems to cool the pressurized air or gas. After cooler is designed for direct / floor mounting arrangement. Moreover, compressed after cooler is available in standard horizontal / vertical models, with or without built in Moisture Separators.
Features of After Cooler Heat Exchangers:
Gireesh After coolers are heat exchangers that remove the heat from compressed air. The most common compressor after coolers use much cooler ambient air or cool water to remove the heat, which is also effective in removing moisture from compressed air.
After coolers remove moisture / water vapour in compressed air systems by cooling the air below its dew point, causing water vapour to condense into liquid form. Moisture, either vapour or condensed in compressed air systems can cause considerable damage to distribution equipment and or the final product.
Maintenance of After Cooler Heat Exchangers:
Final water coolers from the allow the efficient and economical purification of compressed air by cooling the air at the outlet of the compressor at an outlet temperature of only 10°C higher than that of the inlet water.
This cooling cause’s condensation of up to 80% of the moisture present in the compressed air that can be separated thanks to an AS/MS centrifugal condensate separator installed at the outlet of the cooler.The final coolers consist of a shell and tube exchanger cooled in perfect counter current by a flow of cooling water.
