What is a Desiccant Dryer?

Our innovative desiccant dryers give customers efficient protection against the presence of any humidity in the air, which often is the source of: 

  • Corrosion, pollution and leakage of pipes
  • Decreased efficiency of equipment/tools
  • Freezing of water in pipes 

A desiccant or adsorption dryer uses desiccant material to adsorb and remove the humidity from compressed air. With this method, a pressure dew point as low as -70°C/-100 °F can be reached. A desiccant dryer should be used when the ambient temperature goes below freezing point, to avoid ice forming in pipes and applications.

Do you know that?

If compressed air with pressure dew point of -70°C/-94°F is being supplied to a normal living room of 20m³ in volume, it will contain half a gram of water by weight inside it.
