When drying with an adsorption dryer, the moisture in the air is adsorbed by moisture adsorbing material. Our adsorption dryers use a rotor that consists of 82% moisture adsorbing silica gel. Adsorption drying is often used for drying at and low temperature and/or very low moisture content and dew points.
In an adsorption dryer, the moist process air passes the adsorption rotor. The adsorbent material in the rotor causes it to extract moisture from the air. A rotor cannot absorb moisture indefinitely. Therefore, the regeneration process ensures that the absorbed moisture is removed from the rotor. The rotor rotates slowly so that about 40% of the rotor surface is used for regeneration. The regeneration section uses warm air to ensure that the moisture is absorbed from the rotor. Different sources can be used for the warm air in the regeneration section. Examples are central heating water, steam, thermal oil, gas, a heat manikin or residual heat from your process.
Drying by means of an adsorption dryer has many advantages. First of all, an adsorption dryer is based on a simple principle. In addition, an adsorption dryer has a high reliability. Also, very low moisture contents and dew points can be achieved with adsorption drying.
Adsorption dryers from Reinders Industrial are designed in-house according to your specific situation. We have the knowledge to examine your drying process or production process on efficiency, process parameters, energy consumption, product quality and yield. Because we continually invest in research and development, we are able to realize the most energy-efficient system possible with lower consumption costs and faster payback times compared to conventional techniques. One of our spearheads is the realization of ‘turn-key’ projects. We can take care of the complete project planning for you: from research and design to installation and maintenance.
