Gast Group has introduced the Jun-Air IQdryer, a high-purity, heatless desiccant air dryer that reduces the energy consumed by compressors by reducing pressure drop.

All-in-one service kits contain everything required to service the IQdryer, including new cartridges. The kits contain easy-to-follow instructions and are sealed in air-tight foil bags to prolong shelf life.

An integrated PLC control and display system provides full operational and monitoring data. It also indicates when the dryer requires servicing and, to prevent wet air travelling downstream, ensures the dryer resumes its cycle from where it was interrupted.

The IQdryer has a maximum working pressure of 12 barg and will be available for all Jun-Air oil-free compressors, including standalone and cabinet-based products.

Key features and benefits

  • To eliminate the risk associated with float drain malfunction, condensate is collected in a ‘quiet zone’ that is vented with every cycle using timed solenoids.
  • Purge adjustment screws are also located after fine dust filtration to eliminate contamination.
  • According to the company, the dryer increases reliability and simplifies maintenance procedures, while ensuring the continuous delivery of high-quality compressed air.
  • Maintenance has been simplified by combining the filter and desiccant in an externally fitted cartridge, which has increased maintenance intervals from 2,000 hours to 4,000 hours and means that the handling of loose desiccant and contaminants is avoided.
  • The IQdryer combines the filter and desiccant dryer in a single cartridge and, by eliminating external filters and drains, reduces the energy consumed by the compressor.
  • It meets high standards of purity, delivering air in accordance with ISO 8573:1 2001, Class 2 dust (1 micron) and Class 2 water (-40°C pressure dew point).
