BEKO Air Dryers
Compressed Air Dryers: Process safety is the deciding factor
Moisture in the form of condensate in compressed air systems creates a permanent danger for operation processes. BEKO DRYPOINT RA series refrigeration air dryers, DRYPOINT AC series desiccant air dryers / EVERDRY FRA series adsorption dryers and DRYPOINT M Plus membrane compressed air dryers provide you with considerably increased process safety and therefore significant advantages, plus they go one step further: Due to their large energy-saving potential, you can also protect your financial resources and therefore utilise them more efficiently for your core business. An important criteria for the selection of a compressed air dryer is the desired degree of drying, the air volume flow rate and the compressed air quality class. There is therefore a differentiation between three compressed-air drying methods.
Different methods of compressed-air drying
Our comprehensive range of BEKO Technologies refrigeration, desiccant / adsorption and membrane dryers optimally fulfils all requirements. We can therefore satisfy the requirements for a wide range of drying degrees and quality classes and achieve pressure dewpoints between +15 and -70 °C . In order to find the perfect solution for you, we also set the same high standards for our professional advice and consultation service as those for all of our quality products: sustainable, long-term, individual.
Refrigeration Air Dryers: the most economical drying method for any compressed air system
BEKO DRYPOINT RA & RA eco Refrigeration Air Dryers
Refrigeration dryers are used in compressed air systems worldwide and represent the current state of technology. Refrigeration drying is the most cost-effective technology for the drying of compressed air: The compressed air is cooled, so that water vapour in the air condensates inside the unit and can be drained away.
For applications where stable conditions are a key requirement, the standard BEKO DRYPOINT RA direct expansion dryer is the most efficient and cost effective solution.
For fluctuating volume flows, we recommend the BEKO DRYPOINT RA eco range of dryers as its intelligent controls enables users to make significant energy savings.
Tried and tested – The BEKO DRYPOINT® RA Series
The DRYPOINT RA refrigeration dryer is the standard solution and therefore always the first choice for applications with stable operating conditions and constant pressure dew points of + 3°C. The large variety of models enable us to always be able to provide you with the correct solution for your requirements. Every one of them impresses with reliable drying, minimal compressed air loss as well as low energy consumption, even with varying work load. The tried and tested design of the DRYPOINT RA enables not only maximum functionality, but also reliable, safe and cost-effective operation.
Superior Efficiency with Minimal Pressure Loss
A high pressure drop in the refrigeration dryer must be compensated for by an increased compressor performance and the therefore associated additional energy demand. The consequences are unnecessary energy consumption and significantly higher operating costs. In the case of DRYPOINT RA refrigeration dryers, the pressure drop has therefore been reduced to an absolute minimum. The essential elements here are the flow-optimised heat exchanger, a demister for safe separation and generously dimensioned components, which ensure a low pressure drop of 0.16 bar on average – in full load operation.

Desiccant Air Dryers: compact cold regenerating dryers & heat regenerating adsorption dryers
BEKO DRYPOINT AC & EVERDRY FRA / FRA-V Air Dryers
A BEKO desiccant dryer works according to the adsorption principle. The air is passed at intervals through a container filled with a desiccant. The desiccant is regenerated simultaneously in a second container. With DRYPOINT AC desiccant dryers, we can provide refrigeration regenerating and, alternatively, heat-regenerating desiccant dryers with EVERDRY FRA & FRA-V.
Both series are suitable for complying with high quality air requirements where very low pressure dew points must be achieved or with very high volume flow. This method for compressed-air drying can achieve pressure dew points down to -70°C.
Cold-regenerated Desiccant Dryers – The BEKO DRYPOINT AC Series
Reliable drying – even under high pressure: When the conditions are unfavourable and the air volume flows are higher, then the demands on the construction design of a compressed-air dryer are also higher.
The DRYPOINT AC cold-regenerated adsorption dryer is particularly robust and durable due to its high-quality components. They remove the humidity from the compressed air in an efficient and safe manner by utilising a desiccant.
A small proportion of the dried compressed air is subsequently implemented for regeneration. Compressed air losses are therefore retained at consistently low levels and the operating costs are significantly reduced.
Compact construction design – benefits with quality,
efficiency and service
DRYPOINT AC 119-196 – for flow rates of 10 – 120 m³/hr: The compact adsorption dryer can be connected to any worldwide standard power supply. 20 different installation options make this series particularly flexible. The desiccant is filled in cartridges and extracts moisture from the compressed air up to a pressure dew point of -40°C.
DRYPOINT AC 450-495 / HL – for flow rates up to 8200 m³/hr: The innovative shuttle valve of this series allows flow even in the event of power failure, making the system particularly safe. Extracts moisture from the compressed air up to a pressure dew point of -40°C (optional -70°C).
DRYPOINT AC HP – for high pressure from 100 – 350bar: Standard in stainless steel – Maximum service life – Easy and fast maintenance. Properties that make this high-pressure dryer particularly sturdy. Extracts moisture from the compressed air up to a pressure dew point of -40°C (optional -70°C).
Heat-regenerated Desiccant Dryers – The BEKO EVERDRY Series
The EVERDRY desiccant dryer series offers standardised system concepts with a wide range of possible variations as a heat-regenerating adsorption dryer for compressed air. The highly complex tasks involved in compressed-air drying of larger volume flows can therefore be solved particularly economically. Customer-specific requirements can be fulfilled with individual solutions. In such cases it is not the availability, rather the solution-oriented, optimal technology which determines the concept for a drying plant or system. Working in partnership, Kerr and BEKO develops and project manages complete concepts which are tailor-made to each customer´s individual requirements.

Membrane Dryers – The BEKO DRYPOINT M Plus Series
Compact, reliable, without electricity: The DRYPOINT M Plus membrane dryer dries the compressed air by means of highly selective membranes. Pressure dew points between +15 and -40 °C can therefore be achieved – one reason for the diverse range of applications even under changing operating conditions. An additional bonus: the integrated nanofilter, which fulfils all the requirements for efficient filtration and thereby also protects the membranes – a dryer and filter in one.
The full savings potential of membrane drying can only be used provided that compressed air is only dried as required for the application. The highest reliability and immediate availability of the dry compressed air are the general requirement here. This applies equally to laboratory areas as well as for applications in factory halls or outdoor areas, mobile or stationary.
