Refrigerated air dryers are basically a refrigeration system which is used to remove water vapor from compressed air. Refrigerator, heat exchanging unit are to be placed in a canopy which is affected by static and dynamic stresses acting on it. In this paper the load carrying capacity of canopy base has been analyzed using finite element analysis method with various approaches for the same loading condition. From the analysis results it is concluded that the deformation value of the canopy base varies with respect to overall weight of the refrigerated air dryer and thickness of base plate. By introducing circular disc on the bottom of the canopy, base can obtain high withstanding capacity of canopy base comparing with other two approaches.
