Air Main Charging Valves

Air Main Charging Valves


Compressed air clean air treatment equipment is designed and rated to perform under specific CFM volumes in specific environments. As an example a fridge dryer achieves a 3°C, (37°F) pressure dew point. Based on an inlet pressure of 100 psig and ambient and approach  temperatures  of 100°F. Following a system shut down, and repressurization these conditions are seldom achieved and often exceeded, resulting in compressed air contamination carryover. This is particularly prudent at weekends and holidays. Kaeser’s air main charging valve controls the amount of compressed air being allowed to flow into the clean air treatment equipment by modulating open and closed at factory set intervals. In essence the air main charging valve ensures that filters and dryers are able to cope with the influx of compressed air flow and pressure, at any particular temperature following a restart.

The system

The air main charging valve typically sits directly after the clean air treatment equipment, (final stage after filter). The air main charging valve can also be connected to a master control system and is designed specifically to operate in perfect harmony with Kaeser’s Sigma Air Manager (SAM).
