Dried, filtered, pressurised air can serve many useful functions at manufacturing sites, construction projects or for other industrial applications. Aggreko meets these needs with regenerative, desiccant-based dryers as well as refrigerative units.
Desiccant-based dryersTemperature differences
Our desicant based dryers have capacities up to 10,000 m3/hr. The units come equipped with mounted particulate and oil-removal prefilters, automatic condensate drains and an afterfilter that cleans outlet air down to .01 micron.
Aggreko also offers desiccant dehumidifier that are tailored to customer specifications with an internal silica gel wheel. The wheel takes water vapor in a part of the wheel and at the same time the silicate in another part of regenerated (dehydrated). When the available electric power is limited, this dehumidifier are designed so that the regeneration of a heating by natural gas, propane, or vapor. These devices have been used in numerous applications, such as:
- In manufacturing and construction, to reduce the drying time of wet concrete, to speed up painting and plastering work or to minimize corrosion
- In process applications such as stabilizing or preserving food
- In the renovation of buildings and manufacturing plants after flood damage
