Parker Domnick Hunter energy saving compressed air drying products have been added to the Energy Technology List (ETL), part of the government Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme.

The ECA scheme for Energy Saving Technologies gives companies tax relief to encourage them to invest in energy-saving plants or machinery specified in the ETL.

When replacing compressed air purification equipment, businesses often opt for the cheapest, which often proves to be a false economy.

Considering the lifecycle cost before investing in equipment can help reduce overall costs in the longer term.

The ECA scheme provides businesses with 100 per cent first-year tax relief on their qualifying capital expenditure.

This means businesses can write-off the cost of the equipment against taxable profits in the year of purchase.

An appropriate example is the provision of compressed air desiccant dryers, where the regeneration costs can waste a lot of energy if not optimised correctly.

Compressed air desiccant air dryers are used on approximately 15 per cent of industrial sites to remove the moisture present in the compressed air before it is used.

This type of air dryer is energy intensive, but it removes a lot more moisture than a refrigerant air dryer and is usually specified for exposed installations or special applications.

These can include circumstances where there is a risk of bacterial growth in the piping and the compressed air coming into contact with food.

The Parker Domnick Hunter Pneudri desiccant air dryer, which is fitted with Dewpoint Dependent Switching Energy Saving Controls, eliminates unnecessary desiccant regeneration cycles to provide considerable energy savings.
