Energy Saving Products

Dewpoint Monitors and Alarms

Energy Saving

 Artic Driers can offer users a reliable and easy to use system for any dew point monitoring / alarm system. From simple probes that will provide a volt  free contact to a light or horn, to  others that will provide a local dew point LCD display & settable alarm with a 4-20mAmp signal that can be coupled to a central computer system.

 Artic staff are well versed in the range of instruments and are constantly attending the latest courses to  ensure that we are up to  date at all times

 Relying on an air dryer display does not tell you the real  state of the compressed air systems dryness, and a dryers fascia panel will only  tell you the physical  compressed air temperature, not the moisture content  of the compressed air line! 

 One simple blocked drain will infect an air system very quickly and this fault is very easy for an operator to  overlook for days or even weeks.

 A dew point alarm will give you instant pre warning of an imminent system contamination

Electronic Differential Pressure Gauges

XAM - 200 DP gauge

XAM-200 is a differential pressure gauge designed to measure the differential pressure between the inlet and outlet of AIR-VIP and VACUUM VIP filters.

Differential pressure measure allows to identify when it is suitable and convenient to change out the filter element. the pressure guage has on both sides a scale in two colours in a range from 0 to 0.7 bar.

When the indicator is on the green zone means that the filter is using the right amount of energy.

When the indicator gauge is on the red zone, it means that the filter is absorting too much energy therefore the filter element should be substituted.

Some hints, as there is no pressure behind the lens and a special membrane gaskets, provide the XAM-200 with a great safety measure.

Compressed Air Auditing  - Reducing Your Energy Costs - has become a vital tool for any plant engineer who wants to  reduce compressor air wastage and energy  consumption.

Artic Driers has the biggest compressed air audit equipment capability in Southern Africa and has invested heavily in Air Audit Equipment over recent years. All equipment used is calibrated on a regular basis 

With our twelve channel DS500 and some of 8 off CS 325 data loggers, we have the resources to provide data in multi axis graphs as well as Excel format to clients on multiple compressor houses simultaneously.  REPORTS - All our reports contain the graphs as well as a concise report / overview.  


We are able to log data  and provide graphics on the following;

  • Air Flow
  • Air flow cumulative
  • Ultrasonic liquid flow measurement 
  • Air Pressure
  • Air differential pressure
  • Air flow velocity
  • Air temperature
  • Air dew point and R.H.
  • Power in amps & kWhrs
  • Oil Carry Over Monitoring
  • CO and CO² SO² content

Air & vacuum audits are invaluable in assisting new equipment selections prior to a new purchase or identifying problem areas. Air audits can be undertaken on high pressure lines as high as 340 bar as well as vacuum systems, the only exception being wet vacuum lines.  Dew points as high a +50 and as low as -100°C are achievable


ULTRASONIC LEAK DETECTION - With a variety of tools we are can  establish the compressed air leaks in most plants with a high degree of accuracy enabling  a measurable corrective action plan to be implemented. Our in-house developed systems allow us to capture the severity of the leak, note its dbA rating as well as give an accurate values in volume and rand cost, of the volume of the c/air lost. A report detailing each leak is issued, as well as a consolidated Excel spread sheet.

Any cost incurred in using our services is very quickly recouped in power savings and reductions in wastage.

Permanent Instrumentation Packages. For larger systems, a permanent instrumentation package can be installed to provide a monitoring system that tracks the air systems  flow and pressure performance 24/7. Set alarm points can  be set  using user friendly software. The cost of a compressed air audit is cheap when compared to the cost of compressed air wastage and sub-standard compressed air treatment. The ROI period will be counted in days not months!

We are also able to offer the CS-iTEC CSM-2G system that allows for off site monitoring of any compressed air system. The CSM 2G sytems allows for information to be sent to a SCADA system as well as the engineers desktop or any other mobile device. This system can operate using ZigBee WiFi system.

Artic import and markets a variety of chemical air dryer controllers



The PSK 100 controller is a cost effective unit for the basic heatless twin tower air dryers. It is fitted to the PSK series marketed by  Artic Driers. Offering many  advantages of other products it allows for adjustments to  be made to the:

  • ·         Drying time cycles,  4 to  12 minute cycles are available.
  • ·         Adjustment of the Re-Pressurisation time period

 The unit  is designed to operate up to a 5  valve configuration. Display lights indicate the tower that is on line, and  when there-pressurisation cycle is in process  as well as power on. An illuminated on/off rocker green rocker switch is standard. Power required 220/1/50



The PSK 200 controller is an effective system for controlling heatless twin tower air dryers. The use of this unit offers a cost effective method of extending  by monitoring the exiting compressed air dewpoint (dryness) dew point of the compressed air. When a dryer operates below the design criteria the time cycles between switch-over’s is extended so saving expensive compressed air and reducing the wear and tear on the air dryers valves and shuttles. The longer the cycle time, the lower the compressed air purge wastage. This reduces operating costs dramatically

The PSK 200  is designed to operate up to a 5  valve configuration. Display lights indicate the tower that is on line, and when there-pressurisation cycle is in process  as well as power on. An illuminated on/off rocker rocker switch is fitted. Power required 220/1/50

Air Saver - Timed Automatic System Shutdown Valve

Air Saver - Timed Automatic System Shutdown Valve

The Air Saver valves offer a cost effective and reliable air mains shut off after hours when compressed air is no longer required after normal operating hours in a factory

This means that air is conserved in the major arterial mains and air receivers ready for a fast track start up in the morning.

All the Air Saver series valves are ported up to 2” bsp female.

Close and opening times are easily adjusted via control panel on the fascia of the valve. Manual override is included and is very easy to activate.



  • CE tested.
  • Fully automatic
  • LED indicators, show operational status.
  • IP 45 enclosure
  • Adjactable Timing
  • Simple to install
  • Rugged ABS timer housing
  • Compact Design
