German steel mill gets Beko dryer

19 August 2008

A steel mill in Lower Saxony, Germany has installed a heat-regenerated absorption dryer for the application-based processing of compressed air.

The BEKO Everdry FRP 5500 C type provides measuring devices, used in the steel production process with compressed air.

The dryer is controlled by a PLC (programmable logic controller). All process data is indicated at the control cabinet and transmitted to the primary control unit via Ethernet. The electrical control was designed in close co-operation with the plant operator, in accordance with the in-house standard of the facility.

‘The hopes we placed on EverAir, a company of the Beko group were entirely fulfilled’, said a representative of the steel mill. ‘We activated the plant and, afterwards, we could forget about it, so to speak.’

The dryer supplies a volume of 5,500 Nm³/h with a pressure dew point of 40°C. Compressed air, which is not required for the application, is fed into the general operational network for the shop air.
