Abstract


Today, energy conservation is a priority. This is due to the shortage of energy resources, the growth of their cost and global environmental problems. The production of compressed air is a wery costly and power-consuming process. One of the areas of energy saving is to improve the quality of the air preparation equipment, in particular, to increase the energy efficiency of this type of devices such as adsorption dryers for compressed air. Reduction of unnecessary energy losses in this sphere is possible due to the use of innovative technologies. The functioning of the adsorption dryer is associated with the consumption of compressed air, which is consumed during the periodic regeneration of the adsorbent. The practical value of the research includes an explanation of the regularity of the influence of the temperature drop, at which the adsorbent regeneration process takes place, on the reduction of the airflow loss during the proceedings of the dryer.
