SECOTEC – that's the name of KAESER's renowned industrial quality refrigeration dryers that have long been valued for their stable pressure dew point performance, their exceptional dependability and their low total life-cycle costs. Together with the innovative SECOPACK LS latent heat storage heat exchanger system and the SIGMA CONTROL SMART controller, the next generation of these advanced dryers sets new standards when it comes to energy efficiency, compact design and user-friendliness.
SECOTEC TF series refrigeration dryers require less than 87 W of electrical power per m³/min of compressed air (ISO 7183 A1). Thanks to the energy-saving control, reserve cooling performance can be temporarily accumulated in the thermal storage medium during partial load operation and can subsequently be used for drying purposes without the need for additional energy consumption. The rapid reaction SECOPACK LS heat exchanger system ensures stable pressure dew points at all times.
The thermal mass storage section of the innovative SECOPACK LS heat exchanger system is filled with a phase change material. Its significantly higher thermal storage density means that 98 % less storage material is required to achieve the same capacity as conventional storage media. This impressive storage capacity not only ensures excellent pressure dew point stability, but also drastically reduces space requirement. Optimised flow channels reduce pressure losses and further enhance the energy efficiency of the SECOTEC TF series dryer.
The electronic SIGMA CONTROL SMART controller with colour display and language-neutral menu design is simple and intuitive to operate. Message memory, component-specific operating hours counters and maintenance timers enable efficient monitoring and analysis of operating data. Floating contacts make networking with master controllers, such as the SIGMA AIR MANAGER, quick and easy.
The high quality cooling circuit in SECOTEC TF series refrigeration dryers enables dependable performance in ambient temperatures up to +45 °C, and optionally as high as 50 °C. The generously sized condensate separator and the electronic ECO-DRAIN condensate drain ensure dependable condensate removal in all load phases. Durability is also increased through the use of stainless steel compressed air piping and because the condenser and SECOPACK LS are made from aluminium. The electrical equipment complies with standard EN 60204-1.
