  • Easy and simple dew point adjustments thanks to the purge low control
  • Membrane dryers for small compressed air needs

    Pneumatech offers an easy-to-use and simple drying solution for small compressed air needs. Pneumatech point-of-use membrane dryer does not require any power source, is compact and easy to install. This makes the dryer suitable for various smaller compressed air applications where a higher degree of dehumidification is required, such as laser machining tools, precision measuring equipment, gas analyzers and small gas generators.

    The pressure dew point achieved by membrane dryers is dependent on the inlet temperature of the compressed air; but can go down to -40°C/-40°F. This is achieved by a hollow-fiber membrane, where moisture can diffuse through the fine pores of the fiber bundles. When differences in moisture concentration arise between the inside and outside of a fiber membrane, moisture is transferred through the membrane surface to equalize

    the moisture concentration on both sides of the membrane. Part of the dry air is used as purge air in order to remove the moisture from the incoming wet air.

    Membrane Dryers

    Using a process called “selective permeation,” membrane dryers can help remove that moisture to ensure the required air quality standards are met.
