SKF recently introduced the SFD (Separator Filter Dryer) Dryer System, designed to enhance the performance of compressed air systems. The system meets the demands of several industries that use compressed air, including automotive refinishing/collision repair, cement/construction, and various point-of-use manufacturing applications, including SKF’s own plants. The SFD features a regenerative desiccant dryer system designed to remove oil, contaminates and water from compressed air systems. Each unit contains internal oil separators engineered to extend the unit’s service intervals and reduce operating costs by protecting downstream pneumatic components. Additionally, the unit’s compact and integrated design allows for easy installation and maintenance, and requires no additional expensive external filters for successful operation. The technology has been proven effective within harsh environments in other markets for many years.
