The industry-standard activated
alumina desiccant is used extensively in compressed air dryers.
Activated alumina is for use in both heated compressed air dryers
and heatless / pressure swing compressed air dryers. Dewpoints of
-100° F can be achieved depending on dryer design and operating
conditions. F-200 is a smooth sphere of activated alumina produced
by the unique manufacturing process.
F-200 is an excellent desiccant for
drying a wide variety of liquids and gases. Although all molecules
are adsorbed to some extent on F-200 activated alumina, those
molecules having the highest polarity are preferentially absorbed.
Stream conditions such as pressure, concentration and molecular
weight of the molecules, temperature and site competing molecules
affect the efficiency of adsorption.
