Desiccant / Desiccant


Atlas Copco USA- Oil and Dessicant
Why is it so important?
Ambient air contains moisture, and when air is compressed that moisture gets concentrated. Desiccant removes moisture from your compressed air stream. With continued use and regeneration, desiccant becomes saturated and no longer adsorbs moisture effectively. It becomes soiled and breaks down. How can you tell when it’s time to replace your desiccant? Some desiccants change color when they need to be replaced, but if your filters are fouling more quickly than before, or if pneumatic lines, controls or tools contain moisture, then it’s time to replace your desiccant.

What different types are there?
Different desiccant formulations are designed to remove moisture with different drying methods including heatless regeneration, heated purge regeneration, heated blower purge regeneration, heat of compression regeneration and manual regeneration. No matter what type of desiccant you need for your dryer, Edmac stocks it. We have molecular sieves for critical applications that require dew points of -100°F. We have truckloads of American-made F-200 1/8” & 3/16” & 1/4” activated alumina, deliquescent (Dry-O-Lite), and silica gel in 50# bags. Need a complete pallet? Ask us about quantity discounts.
