Flow Capacities Maximum inlet flow capacities at various pressures:
To determine a dryer's inlet flow capacity at inlet pressures other than 100 psig, multiply the dryer's rated inlet flow (found in Table 1) by the multiplier from Table 2 that corresponds to the system pressure at the dryer inlet.
KAD Dew Point Options Meet ISO 8573.1 Air Quality Standards (Table 3)
Models KAD and KAD PS allow the user to select outlet pressure dew points corresponding to the four different ISO 8573.1 air quality classes.
KAD E models are preset to deliver the commonly used ISO 8573.1 Class 2 outlet pressure dew point.
Outlet flow capacities:
For dryers operating at less than maximum flow and using the Purge Economizer feature and/or operating at pressures other than 100 psig, contact factory for correct purge flow. -

Average Heater kW (fixed cycle) = (kW required to produce 280°F temperature rise) x (235 min. max heat time) / (240 min drying time)
Average Blower kW (fixed cycle) = (Blower kW) x (235 min. max heat time) / (240 min dryer time)
Average Dryer kW (fixed cycle) = (Average Heater kW) + (Average Blower kW)
Actual kW is normally much lower and proportional with the average annual water load presented to the dryer.
