Aircel AES Series Energy Saving
Refrigerated Air Dryer

600 - 10,000 scfm
AES Series digital scroll compressors modulate on and off immediately and accurately based on system demand. This uses less energy when demand is lower, delivering proportional energy savings. The compact, stainless steel heat exchangers pre-cool the air with the outgoing cold air to minimize energy consumption while maintaining the required dew point. Aircel’s zero loss condensate drain provide effective condensate removal without the loss of compressed air. Each cabinet is designed for easy service accessibility. Each cabinet provides easy access to critical components located inside.

• Chevron design creates turbulent flow, allowing the air to flow freely and efficiently.
• Delivers ISO 8573-1:2010 Air Quality Class 4 pressure dew point.
• Heat exchangers and air lines are wrapped in non-degrading insulation to maintain highest thermal efficiencies.
• Digital compressor is the most efficient compressor over widest range of inlet flow conditions.
• Highly reliable, proven design.
• 71% fewer parts provide greater reliability and significantly decreased maintenance than reciprocating compressors.
• Dryers utilize R-404a refrigerant.
• Push to test button ensures system operation reliability.
• Dryer enclosure opens, providing access for routine maintenance.
• Powder coated cabinets look great for years to come, while protecting the inner workings of the dryer from harsh environments.
• Inlet and outlet air connections located at the top provide installation ease.


AES Series dryers come standard with industry leading controller technology providing the easiest, most innovative way of monitoring dryer status. Each AES Series dryer includes a user-friendly 4” LED touch screen with ethernet-ready capabilities to connect to your existing system. This screen control monitors system performance, operation of the digital scroll compressor, and tracks energy savings, while displaying system operational steps.

How It Works

• Saturated, compressed air enters the system and moves into the pre-cooler/reheater (A), where it is pre-cooled by the cold outgoing air.

• The air is then directed through the air to refrigerant heat exchanger (B), where it is cooled to 38°F by the refrigeration system.

• The cold, saturated air flows into the three-stage separator (C), where liquids are removed from the air and ejected from the system via the Aircel condensate drain (D).

• The cold, dry air is then reheated by the incoming warm air (E) before leaving the dryer.
How Aircel AES Series Works


Recommended Installation





Aircel AES Series

Due to the increasing cost of energy around the world, the compressed air industry has been challenged to create a dryer to deliver long-term energy savings. To address this need, Aircel engineers designed the AES Series - a dryer that precisely matches power usage to inlet air demand. AES dryers automatically modulate the refrigeration compressor on and off, delivering significant power and energy savings to your bottom line.
