Have you ever had a compressed air dryer fail and continued operating because there was no dew point sensor after the dryer to pick up on the problem? Our customers have and the problems caused by dryer failure can become very expensive. The solution is simple and incredibly cost effective: fit an S305 dew point monitor downstream of the dryers. This wall mounted and self contained unit incorporates a dew point sensor, display and relay outputs to signal that an alarm situation has occurred. 4 screws, a 6mm connection to the compressed air and a mains or 24Vdc power supply connection and it is ready to go with no setup or complicated configuration.
Water contamination can be pre-existing in older compressed air distribution systems and the five S305 units shown here are for a customer that wanted protection for five critical systems at point of use. Compared to other dew point solutions, the S305 is so cost effective that there is no need to worry about budgets and comes in 2 range options: -20 +50degC suitable for refrigerated dryers or -50 +20degC for desiccant dryers.
We were recently discussing these issues with a customer that didn't have any downstream dew point verification after the dryers and they admitted they had serious issues with a dryer failure that wasn't noticed for months and cost them a huge amount of money due to the consequences of water contamination. When asked how often they had a dew point audit to verify the system, the answer was once a year! Fitting a pair of S305's solved their problem for less than the price of another audit and they are reassured that they have done everything necessary to prevent another critical failure going unnoticed.
Does your system rely solely on the dew point sensor on the dryer with nothing downstream as a verification monitor? How do you know the dryer sensor is working or still in calibration? What would happen if your dryer failed and the air main was contaminated with water, would it be very expensive? Ask us about the S305 so the it can be fitted and forgotten about until a failure occurs and then saves you a huge amount of time and money.
