Types of Compressed Air Dryers
The four main types of compressed air dryers are:
- Refrigerant air dryers: These air dryers use heating and cooling to remove vapour from the air.
- Desiccant air dryersl: In desiccant air dryers, air flows over an absorbent material that extracts moisture.
- Chemical air dryers: In these dryers, air is passed over chemical beds consisting of calcium chloride or lithium chloride, which absorb any moisture present.
- Membrane air dryers: These air dryers lower the dew point of the compressed air to make humidity and condensation not possible. This is done with various filters and a special membrane that removes moisture.
Uses and Benefits of Refrigerant Compressed Air Dryers
Refrigerated compressed air dryers are preferred over other compressed air dryers because they:
- Have a low initial cost
- Save energy
- Increase compressor longevity
- Are reliable
- Are low-maintenance
- Are easy to use

Frequently Asked Questions
Compressed air dryers work in different ways depending on the type of design. At Probe, we stock the finest refrigerant compressed air dryers, which use heating and cooling to extract moisture from compressed air.
Untreated air is first cooled down using an air-to-air heat exchanger. It then enters an air-to-refrigerant heat exchanger where it is cooled to 3-4 degrees Celsius. This triggers the moisture present in the air to turn into water droplets which are collected and then separated from the air through a drainage system. The air is then heated up again before exiting the dryer as now dry compressed air.
