Sizing of Air Dryers (Refrigerant & Desiccant)
Air Dryers are normally sized by the maximum output of the air compressor (when installed within the compressor room). Point of use air dryers are used for a variety of air drying applications, we recommend sizing point of use dryers by the end air demand. If you don’t you don’t know the CFM of your air compressor, use 1 CFM for every 1 horsepower. For example, if you have a 25 Horsepower Air Cormpessor, (4 CFM)(25 HP) = 100 CFM. Remember to take in account of the incoming temperature and ambient when when sizing air dryers.
Here is a quick sizing chart that shows the dryer size in CFM and the Compressor size in Horsepower and CFM;
|Compressor Size||Output||Recommended Dryer Size|
|5 hp Air Compressor||17 CFM||20 CFM Air Dryer|
|7.5 hp Air Compressor||23 CFM||25 or 35 CFM Air Dryer|
|10 hp Air Compressor||35 CFM||35 or 50 CFM Air Dryer|
|15 hp Air Compressor||50 CFM||50 or 75 CFM Air Dryer|
|20 hp Air Compressors||80 CFM||100 CFM Air Dryer|
|25 hp Air Compressors||100 CFM||100 or 125 CFM Air Dryer|
|30 hp Air Compressors||125 CFM||125 or 150 CFM Air Dryer|
|40 hp Air Compressors||165 CFM||200 CFM Air Dryer|
|50 hp Air Compressors||210 CFM||250 CFM Air Dryer|
|60 hp Air Compressors||245 CFM||250 or 300 CFM Air Dryer|
|75 hp Air Compressors||350 CFM||400 CFM Air Dryer|
|100 hp Air Compressors||450 CFM||500 CFM Air Dryer|
