Many years ago, Gardner Denver set the standard for energy efficient rotary screw air compressors. The goal was to combine the rugged simplicity of the screw compressor with the energy efficiency of the larger tried and true reciprocating compressors. We called the new technology the TurnValve™ and introduced it with the Electra-Saver® Air Compressors. Now, almost half a century later, the legendary Electra-Saver® is still one of the most energy efficient designs your money can buy for plants with changing air demands. Today, Gardner Denver continues that tradition of providing energy saving solutions to help you increase profits and reduce power costs. Challenges for energy efficiency and dew point stability are answered with a technological breakthrough in energy efficient refrigerated air dryer design. We call this energy saver the RSD Series and it is unlike any energy efficient compressed air dryer technology you have ever seen.
System Pressure Savings
RSD Series Dryers start saving you money before you even turn them on. Your first line of savings results from being able to reduce your system pressure. Pressure savings result from our exclusive heat exchanger design that doesn’t need a prefilter. You save by not having to purchase and install a prefilter or pay for the costly pressure drop associated with it. This feature alone saves you 2–5% of the rated brake horsepower of your air compressor.
