REFRIGERATED AIR DRYERS
Kaishan Australia offers the highest quality range of refrigerated air dryers to ensure you get effective and efficient, dry compressed air all year round regardless of operating conditions or your application.
When selecting the appropriate refrigerated air dryer for your application a number of variables must be taken into consideration if the air dryer is to function properly. These include air flow, working pressure, ambient temperature and compressed air temperature. A dryer incorrectly sized will not function correctly, can cause pressure drop or shut down during hot weather resulting in liquid condensate entering your system.
Refrigerated air dryers remove liquid condensate (moisture) from your compressed air which protects your equipment and process from damaging moisture which can cause product spoilage or contamination, corrosion or equipment malfunction.
Large heat exchanger resulting in low pressure drop and maximised overall energy efficiency.
Patented ATS high contact mixing chamber ensuring excellent heat transfer and condensate separation.
Pressure dewpoint maintained at a steady 3C under all operating conditions. (Subject to correct dryer selection parameters).
Electronic programmable condensate drains.
Comprehensive electronic controller with concise information display.
DESICCANT AIR DRYERS
Kaishan Compressors has a desiccant air dryer to suit every application ensuring whatever your needs are we have the desiccant air dryer to help you achieve the highest quality and driest air you can get.
A desiccant air dryer is suited to applications where air with an extremely low residual moisture content is required. Processes which are susceptible to moisture contamination where even the smallest traces of condensate can cause product spoilage or instrument failure require a desiccant dryer.
A twin tower desiccant air dryer will reduce the pressure dew-point of compressed air to -40°C. This is equivalent to an atmospheric dew-point of around -60°C. Compressed air is dried within one tower while the second tower is regenerated using a controlled volume of dried air. This cycle is automatically reversed after a pre-set period of time. This cycle time can be reduced with the inclusion of optional dewpoint dependent controls. Ask our sales team for more information.
In operation, the desiccant material adsorbs a quantity of moisture in proportion to its weight and ambient conditions.
The dried air, thanks to its low moisture content and due to the expansion that occurs inside the second de-pressurised vessel, causes the removal of moisture in the saturated vessel. The humid purge air is exhausted to atmosphere through the purge valve and muffler. The regenerated tower is then gradually re-pressurised before it reverts to drying the compressed air stream.
AIR COMPRESSOR SPARE PARTS
Kaishan Air Compressors maintain an extremely large inventory of spare parts to support our extensive range of air compressors and ancillary equipment.
An extensive inventory of air compressor parts are kept at our Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane warehouses. We also have the resources to source spare parts for other brands when required. If you need air compressor parts of any type please contact us and we will provide you with a prompt quotation.
All air compressor parts supplied by Kaishan Australia are highest quality, genuine parts so you that you get the confidence in the reliability, integrity and safety of your compressed air system.
Kaishan Compressors has a wide selection of air receivers which range in size from 0.3 m³ up to 40 m³ and with design pressures up to 40 bar to ensure we have the right air receiver for your system. An correctly sized air receiver will increase efficiency and reduce maintenance costs by providing a clean signal buffer between the compressor and reticulation system. Air receivers offer the added benefit of removing condensate from the air stream.
A correctly sized air receiver is critical to the efficient operation of a compressed air system. Inefficiencies caused by frequent loading and unloading can be reduced considerably by installing a correctly engineered vessel.
Energy savings realised by allowing the compressor to fully unload between cycles can far outweigh any cost saved by purchasing a vessel which may be too small. A rapidly cycling compressor will result in a marked increase in maintenance, wear & tear and energy cost.
A correctly sized air receiver will pay for itself over and over again. Air receivers offer the added benefit of acting as a moisture separator to remove condensate from the air.
The larger the vessel, the longer the air is allowed to travel through the air receiver and the more condensate that will drop to the bottom to be drained away. Condensate can damage equipment and cause product spoilage.

Kaishan Australia Air Compressors offers a range of high quality air cooled aftercooler that will effectively remove the majority of condensate (water) from compressed air to protect your system.
Air compressor aftercoolers offer the lowest capital and running cost in removing condensate from compressed air and may be a necessary pre-cooler if you intend to install a refrigerated dryer.
Compressed air is cooled through either an air cooled or water cooled heat exchanger forcing moisture entrapped in the air to condense. The air is then channelled through an efficient condensate separator that spins out a large portion of the condensate.
Aftercoolers can be supplied as an aftermarket accessory for your existing compressor set and can be matched to your reciprocating or rotary screw compressor.
Many new compressors have an air aftercooler internally fitted however, most reciprocating and diesel driven compressors don’t resulting in condensate contaminating the process. An aftercooler is a good way to address problematic water issues in existing systems.
Aftercoolers are the lowest cost and most effective way to remove condensate (water vapour that has condensed back to water) from compressed air. Aftercoolers are not normally needed on many rotary screw and scroll compressors as most new machines are fitted with them as standard.
Aftercoolers operate similar to a radiator in your car. An air (or water) cooled aftercooler cools compressed air to condense most of the entrained moisture back to water. Water is then removed by using a condensate separator. Delivering dry air to your factory is fundamental to reduce potential damage to your equipment or the products you are manufacturing.
An air compressor aftercooler makes the separation and removal of water easy.
Aftercoolers typically remove about 70% of the water vapour from compressed air, if they are correctly sized to do the job.
To size an air compressor aftercooler properly a number of parameters including air flow, pressure and temperatures must be taken into account.

Air filters ensure effective filtration of contaminants from your air supply. Kaishan Australia has an extensive compressed air filter range.
Compressed air coalescing filters will significantly improve the air to your plant by removing airborne contaminants leading to reduced maintenance and avoiding product spoilage, meaning increased productivity and reduced business expenses.
Compressed air used in industrial applications can contain more than 100 million polluting particles for every 1.0 Nm³ of compressed air. Depending on the grade of filter used, contaminant particles can be effectively removed and the air deemed technically oil free.
Most of the particles contained in the air stream are so small (less than 5 microns) they cannot be intercepted by the standard intake filters installed in a typical air compressor.
Compressed air will contain minute traces of oil aerosols and oil vapour which become entrained in the airstream. These oil particles can cause damage to system components as well as product spoilage. Fitting the appropriate compressed air coalescing and absorption filters to meet the quality needs of your system can remove these particles.
It is not only oil lubricated compressors that require filtering, “oil free” compressors still draw in oil and oil vapours from the atmosphere.
There are 4 main types of compressed air filters, the optimal set up for your compressed air system will depend on the application.
Kaishan Compressors has an extensive condensate separator range to ensure you get effective condensate removal leading to high quality compressed air that protects components and product from expensive damage leading to higher productivity and reduced maintenance costs.
Centrifugal condensate separators will efficiently remove already condensed moisture.
Condensate separators are designed to operate at high flow volumes and remove the bulk of condensate and larger particles from the compressed air. This allows filters and other condensate and particle products to filter out the smaller amounts of condensate and particles leaving you with better quality compressed air
