Single tower desiccant dryers remove moisture from compressed air by passing the wet
incoming air upward through a bed of non toxic and non polluting desiccant. Desiccant
absorbs moisture as it gradually dissolves. Dissolved desiccant and condensed moisture fall
to a bottom claim area where it can be drained manually or automatically. The desiccant level
needs to be checked periodically. With most single-shift schedules, tablets only need to be
added to the dryer two or three times per year. Tablets continue to absorb moisture until they
are completely consumed and Phillro’s desiccant adds no harmful acidity to the solution,
unlike some competitive products. Standard models are available from 4 to 16,000 SCFM.
