Switch has easy-to-read pressure

N-series pressure switch, with a big, bright LED display, eliminates the struggle to read operating pressures accurately. A timesaving, one-button operation allows the user to toggle between process pressure, set point, and reset point without complicated procedures. The switch can be combined with an isolator as opposed to a multiple-fitting approach with difficult media.

Air dryer uses air power

Balston SMD Membrane Air Dryer provides pure, dry, compressed air as an economical alternative to refrigerant dryers. It dries compressed air to dewpoints as low as 35 F at flow rates up to 600 scfm. The unit has no moving parts and operates reliably and efficiently without operator attention. Dry air is achieved by returning a small portion of the dry air to sweep out moisture, which passes through the membranes.

Kit reduces compressed air energy consumption

Blower Purge Upgrade kits can be a very economical solution to conserving compressed air and energy. Kits convert heatless desiccant air dryers to externally heated regeneration dryers at a fraction of the cost of a new unit. Heated dryers consume less compressed air for regeneration than heatless dryers. Upgrade kits fit any brand of dryer.
