Pipeline Desiccators are designed to be fitted to compressed gas lines to remove moisture from the gas stream.
A powerful adsorbing agent (either molecular sieve or silica gel) reduces the moisture within the gas stream to acceptable levels. The use of molecular sieve desiccant is recommended when the equipment may be subject to immediate failure as a result of water vapour condensation. The molecular sieve desiccant maintains an ultra low relative humidity for extremely sensitive applications. It is most suitable for applications where equipment may be subject to operation at low temperatures and water vapour condensation must not occur.
