Video: How does a Desiccant or Adsorption Dryer work?

Condair DA

Desiccant Dryer

Condair DA desiccant dryers are designed to be used especially when an extremely low relative humidity of 10 - 20% RH is needed, such as in industrial drying processes, or  where there are very low temperatures to deal with. 

The devices’ powerful sorption rotors mean that they can be used to bring humidity values down to a minimum at temperatures as low as -30°C.

As well as standard designs with drying capacities of 0.45–182 kg/h, a wide range of specialized versions are also available.

Depending on their size, the devices can be fitted with pre- or postcooling batteries, heat exchangers or condensation modules prior to delivery. Post cooling in particular is often necessary due to the heat given off by the dry air, and should be taken into account at an early stage of the planning process. 

As well as being able to choose from a range of different regeneration processes, you also have the option to combine existing media of your own, such as steam or PWW systems, with the electrical regeneration heater.

This saves a considerable amount of energy, particularly with larger systems, and can therefore help you achieve a substantial reduction in operating costs. The sorption rotor used in Condair desiccant dryers is silicone-free. The drying agent is neither respirable nor flammable.
