Adsorption dryers have always used towers filled with thousands of tiny desiccant beads to absorb the moisture in compressed air. Now, following years of research and development, Atlas Copco is introducing a new product that will revolutionize compressed air drying: Cerades™, the world’s first solid desiccant.
Specifically, Cerades™ improves conventional desiccant dryers in five crucial ways:
Cerades™ saves energy and greatly reduces operating costs because the air flows straight through the desiccant tubes.
Cerades™ decays much less than traditional desiccant, which ensures a consistent dew point and high air quality.
Decomposing desiccant beads create a fine dust that is both an environmental and a health hazard. Cerades™ eliminates this dust problem, which also reduces filtration and maintenance costs.
Because Cerades™ is vibration resistant, it can be mounted horizontally. This is especially beneficial in the transportation sector.
Cerades™ can handle a higher airflow and dryers can therefore be built smaller. This saves space in production facilities and compressor rooms.
These videos will give you a closer look at the different ways in which Cerades™ will revolutionize compressed air dryers and help your business.
