Removes oil, contaminates and water from compressed air systems
Designed to go with the company's full line of specialty after-market products, this new system removes oil, contaminates and water from compressed air systems, using a regenerative dessicant dryer. It protects downstream pneumatic components with internal oil separators. It is compact and integrated, making it easy to install, needing only an inlet and outlet port, and a 110V electrical outlet. It comes with two dessicant cartridges, one for air flow and the other for regenerating. It uses less than 10 percent, as opposed to the 20 percent consumption by ordinary systems.
