Membrane dryer saves energy
SMD membrane air dryer provides pure, dry compressed air and offers an economical, efficient alternative to refrigerant dryer technology.
SMD membrane air dryer provides pure, dry compressed air and offers an economical, efficient alternative to refrigerant dryer technology. It dries compressed air to dewpoints as low as 35 F at flow rates up to 600 scfm, has no moving parts, and operates reliably without operator attention. Dry air is achieved by returning a small portion of the dry product air to sweep out moisture, which preferentially passes through the membranes. The degree of drying is controlled by varying the compressed air throughput in the system.
