Unpacking/Application/Analysis
READ CAREFULLY BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO INSTALL, OPERATE OR MAINTAIN YOUR
DRYER. PROTECT YOURSELF AND OTHERS BY OBSERVING ALL SAFETY
INFORMATION. FAILURE TO DO SO COULD RESULT IN PERSONAL INJURY AND/OR
PROPERTY DAMAGE. KEEP OWNER’S MANUAL FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
UNPACKING
ARROW REGENERATIVE AIR DRYERS ARE SHIPPED AS COMPLETELY ASSEMBLED PACKAGES FILLED WITH DESICCANT READY TO INSTALL.
VISUALLY CHECK THE DRYER FOR DAMAGE THAT MAY HAVE OCCURRED IN TRANSIT. IF
THERE IS EVIDENCE OF DAMAGE, IMMEDIATELY ENTER A CLAIM WITH THE CARRIER,
AND NOTIFY YOUR ARROW REPRESENTATIVE.
APPLICATION CHECK AND ANALYSIS
TO ACHIEVE THE BEST DRYER PERFORMANCE, YOU SHOULD CAREFULLY CHECK THAT
THE DESIGN AND INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS OUTLINED BELOW ARE SATISFIED.

Operating pressure of your Arrow Dryer can range from 75 minimum to 150 maximum PSIG.
Check dryer label to verify maximum service pressure. Air available for your air usage will
vary with operating pressure.
The dryer should not be installed where compressed air and/or ambient temperature exceeds
120°F or drops below +32°F. Locate dryer to avoid extremes of heat and cold from other
conditions. Best results occur when dryer is located as close to point of use as practical.
Avoid locating dryer outside or where it is exposed to the elements.
Dryers are sized according to airflow not pipe size. Dryer requires 10% to 15% of inlet airflow (SCFM) for regeneration. The difference between the inlet and outlet flow is the amount
of purge air required. This air is purged to atmosphere and is not available for use downstream. Make certain air supply to dryer meets your air demand plus purge air requirements.
Installation
MOUNTING SPECIFICATIONS AND DRYER LOCATION
Generally, locate your dryer downstream from the air receiver. The only exception would be
on applications with a fluctuating demand. Then the dryer should be located upstream of the
receiver to avoid air surges through the dryer’s desiccant beds.
Provide adequate space around the dryer for servicing.
Four mounting holes are provided in the rear of the cabinet, use the provided bolt hole template to secure dryer to the wall. Arrow recommends using (4) #14 round head wood screws,
#14 round of pan head machine screws, #14 pan head self tapping or sheet metal screws or
1/4” round or pan head machine screws for mounting. Mount dryer vertically in an upright
position at desired location.

PIPING ARRANGEMENT & FILTER INSTALLATION
1
Remove all pipe plugs from the dryer. Take care to insure that pipe dope, pipe tape,
scale or metal chips are not trapped before the inlet port.
Note: Pre & After Filters Must Be Used On All Units
Outlet
Inlet
2
Install Pre-Filters to “Inlet Air” connection on side of cabinet.
• Wet air inlet should be connected to pre-filter connection on the side of
cabinet.
• In situations where air supply is required 24 hours a day (it is undesirable to
interrupt the airflow), a three valve bypass system is recommended to
bypass the dryer and filters. Use the fewest elbows and taper connections
necessary to keep pressure drop at a minimum.
• Compressed air entering the dryer must be cooled to at least 120ºF.
• Pre-filters, located before the dryer, protect desiccant beds from contamination by oil, entrained water,
pipe scale, etc., thereby extending dryer desiccant life. Locate pre-filters as close to the dryer as possible.
• It is recommended that a mechanical separator be installed immediately preceding the pre-filter to
remove the bulk liquid oil and entrained water.
3
Install After Filter to “Outlet Air” connection on side of cabinet.
• Dry air outlet should be connected to after-filter connection on the side of cabinet.
• After filters, located after the dryer, help eliminate the possibility of desiccant dusting and carry over
into the air system.
4
Install Purge Muffler (shipped separately inside of cabinet) to the connection marked “Purge Air” on the side of
the cabinet.
• If Purge Muffler is piped away from dryer - The exhaust muffler must be periodically
checked for any restrictive debris. At high pressure, a clogged muffler could result in high
back pressure and could result in increased dew point, mechanical failure or personal injury.

Installation/Start-up
ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
1
Check to see that the power supply to the dryer is the same as the power requirements
indicated on the identification label.
2
Confirm that the lighted ON/Off switch is in the OFF position.
3
Install the power cord plug into receptacle.
WIRING DIAGRAM
START-UP
OPERATIONS
AFTER ALL PIPING AND ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS ARE MADE, PROCEED AS FOLLOWS:
1
SLOWLY PRESSURIZE THE DRYER!
2
When the dryer reaches full operating pressure, check the system for air leaks. Soap test
all joints and fittings. To maintain desired dew point, any leaks detected must be fixed,
especially those on the outlet side of the dryer.
3
Energize electrical circuit by simply pressing the on/off switch to the “ON” position.
The switch indicator light will be illuminated when the dryer is in operation.
4
When the electrical circuit has been energized, the control circuit board will start to operate
and automatically initiate dryer operation. The timer is factory set, so that no field
adjustment is necessary.
OPERATION OF THE DRYER SHOULD ONLY TAKE PLACE WHEN USING COMPRESSED
AIR. WHEN THE COMPRESSOR IS SHUT DOWN, THE DRYER SHOULD ALSO BE
SHUT OFF. FAILURE TO DO SO COULD LEAD TO PREMATURE FAILURE.

Dryer
Operation
DRYER OPERATION
The inlet wet compressed air enters the dryer and is directed into tower “A” through the switching
valve. The wet air passes through the desiccant bed while the activated alumina strips moisture
leaving dry service air. A portion of this extremely dry air is passed through the fixed orifice shuttle
check valve and flows downward through tower “B” drying out the saturated desiccant and exhausting out of the purge muffler.
This “REGENERATING OPERATION” is actually two cycles: one for drying service air, and one for drying desiccant. After approximately five minutes, the switching valve redirects flow, repeating the
cycle. These cycles are reduced to two minute cycles if the -100ºF dew point is selected.
Required purge air is generally 15% of rated flow.
All Arrow Pneumatic Mini-Regen Dryers have less than a 2 PSIG
Maximum Pressure Drop at standard conditions.
MAINTENANCE
•
Your Arrow Dryer will give you years of service if the filters and drains ahead of
the dryer are properly maintained on a manufacturers recommended schedule.
•
Arrow also suggest replacing the desiccant in the vessels approximately every
three (3) years.
•
Operating conditions will have to be taken into consideration and the schedule
adjusted accordingly.
NOTE: BEFORE MAINTENANCE OF DRYER ALWAYS SHUT DRYER
OFF, DISCONNECT THE ELECTRICAL SUPPLY, AND DEPRESSURIZE
THE PNEUMATIC SYSTEM TO AVOID PERSONAL INJURY
