Coach’s Notes: “The Secotec TF models push the boundaries of compressed air refrigerated dryer performance further than ever before thanks to a game-changing thermal storage system. The dryers' internal design also makes it possible to reduce pressure loss across the dryer to 2.2 psi (compared to 2.9 and higher for conventional models).”
Scout’s Notes: “These dryers include Sigma Control Smart, a micro-processor based controller which controls the thermal storage process. It has an alarm and service message memory, as well as remote on/off control capability. An optional Ethernet interface for connecting to a master control system is also available."
