for 2-Stage Air Compressors
Two-stage compressors are designed to operate at the high input pressures that JT Dryers require. Single stage air compressors cannot achieve these pressures.
JT Dryers use the Joule-Thomson effect whereby a gas that is expanded becomes very cold. Since cold air cannot carry water the way hot air can, the water then condenses out of the air stream and is collected in the bottom of the dryer. See the About / Gallery page for a graphic of this process.
Yes! JT Dryers produce the same overall performance as Freon-based dryers because we use the same basic method to dry air - cooling it until water carried in the air stream condenses out.
Because we use pressure differential rather than a complex Freon cycle to cool the air stream, JT Dryers are far simpler than FREON based units and, therefore, less expensive to manufacture.
In general, JT Dryers are sized as follows: JT-20 for 3 to 5 HP compressors. JT-40 for 7.5 to 10 HP compressors. JT-80 for 15 to 20 HP compressors. JT-120 for 25 to 30 HP compressors.
Yes! Anyone with even modest mechanical skills can easily install one of these dryers. See above to view the installation sheet.
JT Dryers are a true air dryer that can remove both liquid water and water vapor (that can condense into liquid water inside the air lines) from the air stream. Work Station Traps remove liquid water only.
JT Dryers are suitable for use with all General Purpose air applications such as: Auto Repair Shops - Body Shops - Machine Shops - Home Workshops - Paint Shops - Plasma Cutters - CNC Machines - Sand Blasting - Powder Coating, - Farm Shops - Service Trucks - Dry Cleaners - Dental Labs - Water Jet Cutting - HVAC Systems - Manufacturing Plants - Chemical Plants - Process Equipment - Food Packaging – and More.
JT Dryers make dry air easy and low-cost. The best air dryer for 2-stage compressors from 3 to 30 HP (the most common sizes for commercial or home air dryers), JT Dryers can solve your water problem for good at a lower purchase price and lower operating costs – without the need for Freon. Suitable for all General-Purpose air applications, our Patented design provides the same performance as refrigerant dryers, with no maintenance needed, no filters or refrigerants to replace, and a 2X longer life span - just install it and forget it! Why pay more?
JT Air dryers offer free shipping to all US addresses, even Alaska and Hawaii. Why wait? Our low cost refrigerated compressed air dryer systems are the Best Way to dry compressed air for 2-Stage air compressors.
