Vent Dryers

Storage Tanks can breathe protected against moisture contamination

Tank Vent Dryers is the ideal solution to protect fluids particularly sensitive to moisture contamination, such as brake fluids and transformers oils. It can be simply installed with a direct connection to an existing breather or vent pipe.

Tank Vent Dryer is available in various configurations, materials and size, it can be wall mounting (models 605, 610 and 615) or floor mounted (models 620, 630). This product is suitable for tanks of considerable size, with a capacity up to 500,000 litres. Extra precaution might be observed in order to achieve pressure equalisation by installing pressure relief valves on the connecting pipe. The main body is available in mild steel or in stainless steel indicated for more aggressive environments.

Tank Vent Dryer can be filled with a variety of adsorbent products according to the customer requirements.

Silica gel Envirogel can adsorb moisture up to 30% of its weight and the desiccant colour change from orange to green is a clear signal that the desiccant is saturated and need to be replaced. A UV stabilised polycarbonate clear window installed on the body allows visual reading of the saturation level of the desiccant.

Molecular sieves instead are suitable for those applications in which very low dewpoints are required. It adsorbs moisture up to 20% of its weight and has high adsorption efficiency at high temperatures.

When the desiccant is saturated, it can be easily replaced by simply removing the desiccant holder. Refills Packages are available for every model.
