SKF recently introduced its new high-capacity (HC) Dual Turbo-2000 air dryer, an advanced version of the standard SKF Brakemaster Dual Turbo-2000 air dryer designed with a greater maximum compressor size.
The new HC Dual Turbo-2000 is ideal for large compressor output applications and is available in 12-volt/75-watt (6.6-amp) and 24-volt/75-watt (3.2-amp) options.
This air dryer can withstand compressor air flow output of up to 80 scfm and up to 40% compressor duty cycle; the standard Dual Turbo-2000 withstands up to 40 scfm and 100% compressor duty cycle. Additionally, the HC Dual Turbo-2000 includes the same internal filtration package with 99.9% efficiency as the standard Dual Turbo-2000 air dryer. It also meets the 2010 EPA requirements for high-output compressors on transit buses.
“The introduction of the new HC Dual Turbo-2000 air dryer broadens our product offering, allowing end users to choose an air dryer that is designed to meet the specific and difficult air quality demands of their applications,” said Leslie Kern, product development manager, Heavy Duty, SKF.
