Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR DRYING AND COOLING AIR
Abstract:
A method for cooling and/or drying a space equipped with an air dryer (4) and an air cooling apparatus (11), according to which method the regeneration air of the air dryer is heated using the energy attained from the inlet air cooling radiator (11). The heating energy required by the regeneration air heating radiator (13, 15) is taken with a heat pump from the inlet air cooling radiator and from the cooling radiator (16) of the hot exhaust air used for regeneration. The apparatus has a heat pump belonging to the cooling apparatus, which heat pump includes a compressor (12), an inlet air cooling radiator (11 ) and an outside condenser (14) and that the regeneration air heating radiator of the drying apparatus' rotor is connected to the condensing circuit of the heat pump.
