Manual air dryers are used to remove water vapor from compressed air systems, in applications such as paint spraying, laboratory instruments and small control air systems.
1.64 lb. bowl
Silica gel changes from blue to pink to indicate the need to replace or regenerate the desiccant
Slotted bowl guard for visual detection of color change
No electrical connection necessary
Provides atmospheric dew point of -45°F with dry desiccant at 100 PSI and 70°F
Filtration of absorber type dryers is important to protect the desiccant bed from contamination.
Cleaner incoming air will result in better performance, longer life and fewer service problems.
FRL's are designed for air service only, unless otherwise indicated.
An after-filter should be placed downstream from the desiccant dryer to ensure solid contaminants such as desiccant dust do not migrate downstream.
SCFM ratings at 100 PSIG inlet pressure
Will dry up to 4400 standard cubic feet of air
Desiccant is good for approximately 440 minutes at maximum continuous air flow before regeneration is required
To regenerate silica gel desiccant, it must be heated to at least 350°F for approximately 3 hours or until color has changed from pink to blue. Allow desiccant to cool to room temperature before pouring back into unit bowl.
