Parker Desiccant Air Dryers

Parker's complete line of Desiccant Air Dryers available through mdi by category. Desiccant dryers pass the compressed air over a bed of desiccant material which absorbs water vapor molecules. When the bed capacity is nearly saturated, the air flow is switched to a second bed of desiccant material. The first bed is then regenerated. Timers or dew point monitoring equipment can be used to control the regeneration phase. Desiccant dryers can deliver air at consistently low dew points, typically -40°F/°C or less. This technology is a good choice when the compressed air is subject to freezing conditions. There are two types of desiccant dryers: heated and heatless. Heated desiccant dryers use heat to remove water vapor from the desiccant material not in use at that point in the cycle. These dryers need large amounts of steam or electricity to operate. Heatless desiccant dryers use the dry air generated by the dryer to remove water vapor from the desiccant material.
