Level sensor senses the level of the condensate and opens the drain, preventing any loss of compressed air when condensate is drained.
Equipped with backup manual drain as standard and drain alarm (FD 120-285).
2.High-efficiency heat exchanger
Counter-flow compact brazed plate (FD 5-50) or aluminum (FD 60-285) heat exchanger, with air-to-air side for optimum cooling efficiency.
Reduces energy consumption and optimizes the pressure dewpoint at very low temperatures
4.Robust and compact design
Forklift opening for easy transport.
Inlet and outlet located at the top (can be optional) for easy installation.
Easily removed front and side panels for full access.
Optional: IP54, DD/PD filters (with pressure drop monitoring for FD 120-285) and OSD (FD 60-285 only) integrated condensate treatment.
5.Advanced control and monitoring system
The controller displays the pressure dewpoint (PDP) and relative humidity.
Setting allows dryer to cycle or not (Saver Cycle Control algorithm) and restart or not after power failure.
Remote alarm through voltage-free contact.
The controller offers additional features such as energy-saving flow switch algorithm, alarm history, standard remote visualization (Ethernet plug) and communication extension possibility (FD 120-285).
6.Optimum performance and safety in all conditions
Hot gas bypass valve prevents freezing at lower loads.
R134a piston compressor with high coefficient of performance (FD 5-95) or extremely reliable R410a rotary compressor (FD 120-285) provide the best performance for each size while having minimum environmental impact. Capillary tubes cope with all conditions – no moving parts for extra reliability.
FD 120-285 also offer condenser with louvered fin technology for improved performance in dusty environments.
FD 310-4000: Superior productivity
1.High-efficiency heat exchanger
Counter-flow on both air-to-air and air-to-refrigerant sides for efficient heat transfer. As the outgoing air is reheated, it protects the outlet piping against pipe sweating.
Unlike some other dryer designs, a separate pre-filter is not required. This results in a low pressure drop. The design ensures a smooth air flow which makes the dryer less sensitive to contamination.
2.Integrated water separator
Low velocity condensate separator with high separation efficiency even in low flow conditions.
Reliable and effective condensate evacuation from the separation chamber via the no-loss condensate drain.
3.Electronic no-loss condensate drain
Level sensor senses the level of the condensate and opens the drain, preventing any loss of compressed air when condensate is drained, which is the case with timer-based drains.
Designed to perform reliably under extreme conditions of 50°C/122°F ambient temperatures and 60°C/140°F inlet temperatures*. This is due to the sizing of key components such as the heat exchanger, refrigerant compressor, valves etc.
* Some models might require flow correction.
5.Hot gas bypass valve
Prevents freezing at lower loads.
For processes requiring higher levels of filtration, Atlas Copco offers integrated DD and PD filters (optional on FD 310-510).
Monitoring of all parameters to ensure maximum reliability for your installation.
Fitted inside a real IP54 cubicle for easy cabling and safety.
