Ingersoll Rand HOC Dryers Now Available with an Air-Cooled Configuration

HOC air-cooled dryers allow for more cost-savings and flexibility on the job

Davidson, N.C. — June 26, 2012 — Ingersoll Rand, a world leader in creating and sustaining safe, comfortable and efficient environments, has added an air-cooled model to the heat-of-compression dryer product line to allow for greater flexibility, energy efficiency and reliability in a low profile package.
HOC dryers turn wasted heat into useful energy, resulting in clean, dry air at a fraction of the cost of traditional desiccant dryers. By using heat produced during the compression process, HOC dryers can deliver instrument-quality air using virtually no energy.
The air-cooled model is an extension to the water-cooled HOC dryer released last year. These new models deliver Class 2 (-40 °F) air for customers that do not have a water source available yet desire the energy efficiency benefits afforded by the new HOC dryers. The unit is also flexible and can be connected to as many as three oil-free compressors, reducing footprint requirements and installation costs.
“With the formal introduction of the air-cooled models, the HOC product line is complete,” said Scott Hardeman, marketing manager for the customer center and AIRD channels at Ingersoll Rand. “The new addition offers flexibility for either air- or water-cooled operation to meet customers’ specific application requirements to maximize energy conservation and savings.”
HOC dryers feature smart control technology to maximize savings under all operating conditions. By monitoring inlet process air conditions, smart control technology adjusts dryer operation to deliver consistent, dry air and helps maximize dew point and temperature spikes. The advanced air-cooled HOC model offers superior dew point performance by providing constant -40 degrees °F pressure dew point under all load conditions.
