Compressed Air Water Separators

Water Separator

The new range of water separators is now available from Artic Driers.

For ½ to 80 mm screwed these are priced to sell. Complete with float type drains in the housing as standard. Timed electric drains are also available as an option

These units are available from stock right now!

Optional Extra - Artic 22 - Timed Automatic Condensate Drain

The ARTIC 22 3/8” timed automatic condensate drain eliminates the risk of human error and the costly aftermath, by providing regular controlled air system drainage, on time, every time.

The timer is compact & manufactured in tough ABS fire resistant material. The timers are manufactured to IP 65 NEMA 4 standard. Two externally mounted knobs that are graduated for ease of setting make timing adjustments easy. The opening time of the drain is from is 0 to 45 seconds and the interval between drains is 0.5 to 45 minutes

The timer can be manually triggered and is fitted with two high intensity LED's showing the operational status.

The ARTIC 22 timer is suitable for voltages from 24 V to 240 volt, while the brass bodied valve has a large 4.2 mm orifice Please specify coil voltage on order placement of order.

If your application has heavy solids we suggest that an inline Strainer/Shut off valve is used with the Artic 22. This allows the condensate drain module to be checked while in service


  • The Artic 22 valve is also available in a 40 bar and 80 bar version in brass as well as stainless steel.
  • Valve port sizes, ¼, 3/8 ½ . Please note 3/8 is our standard valve body
  • You can buy any item as a spare, bodies coils or timers
  • Coils available in 12AC 24 AC or DC, 110 and 220 volt

ERC After Coolers

ERC After Coolers

For applications where older air compressors are being used that are not fitted with on-board final coolers. These high temperature running units need to have the hot c/air cooled in readiness for compressed air treatment and filtration.

These locally assembled high capacity air cooled aftercoolers are manufactured in house by Artic Driers.

Equipped with high efficiency fans and weatherproof switch, these units are ideal for air treatment for mobile compressor hire units & also fixed applications. These units are supplied with condensate water separators and an Artic 22-2 timed 220 volt/1/50hZ condensate drain.

Inlet temps may be as high as 120°C, outlet temperature will be 10°C  above the ambient cooling air temperature. ERC series units are available in two models;

ERC 009 capacity               40 Nm³min

ERC 010 capacity               60 Nm³/min

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

JAC Series After Coolers

JAC Series After Coolers

The series of air blast aftercoolers are designed to meet the rigorous needs of industry. Compressed air from the majority of air compressors is contaminated with airborne solids, water vapour & in most installations, burnt carbonised oil from the compressor. These contaminates, if not removed can cause high reject rates on end products.

Contaminated air also creates air wastage by causing valves, couplings and drain traps to jam open & increasing expensive air losses to atmosphere.

 The JAC series of aftercoolers reduces the compressed air temperature to within 10 Deg C. of the ambient cooling air. By the forcing the cooling (ambient) air over the finned tube stack that contains the hot compressor air, and reducing the compressed air temperature to within 10 Deg C. of ambient temperature.

This causes the water and oil vapour to condense. This condensate is collected in a separation area that can be drained with an Artic 22 timed auto drain.

Activated Alumina

Activated Alumina

Activated alumina, there are many micro-paths, so the specific surface is large. It can be used as absorbent, desiccant and catalyst carrier. It is also a kind of trace water desiccant and the pole-molecular absorbent, according to the absorbed molecule polarization, the attachment force is strong for water, oxide, acetic acid, alkali ect. The capacity is stable. It has high strength, low abrasion, no soften in water, no expansion, no powdery no crack. It can be widely used in the deep drying of cracked gas, ethylene and propylene, hydrogen-generation, air separation, instrument air drying and fluorine treatment for H2O2, also in the absorbing pollution material, such as H2S, SO2, HF and paraffin in the waste gas, especially in the drinking water defluorinate.

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.
