Tank vent dryer - 5.6Kg desiccant capacity 349.00
[Plus 20% VAT within EU]

Tank vent dryer

Desiccant breathers remove condensation from the airspace above the fluid as well as removing atmospheric moisture from the air that enters the container as the fluid is decanted.

Unit is sited in-line with tank vent / breather and can be wall mounted.

Why use a tank vent dryer?

Biodiesel is hygroscopic and readily adsorbs atmospheric moisture. This can cause several problems including:

  • Water causes breakdown of biodiesel by hydrolytic degradation
  • Reduced heat of combustion leading to reduced power, more smoke and harder starting
  • Corrosion of fuel system components
  • Raised cloud point, cold filter plugging point and freeze point of some types of biodiesel
  • Accelerated microbial growth and consequent fuel spoilage

    Also recommended for containers of other moisture sensitive substances such as methanol and sodium hydroxide.

  • Contains 5.6Kg of desiccant
  • Adsorbtion capacity 840g
  • Air Drying Capacity 55m3
  • Max air flow rate ~480 l/min (28.9m3/hr)
  • Operating temperature -20C to +55C
  • Mounting thread 1" BSPP

  • Overall dimensions 220 x 194mm x 426mm height

    Moisture indicating desiccant is orange when active and turns green when saturated. Desiccant is not carcinogenic. It can either be reactivated or inexpensively replaced.

    Key features:
  • Quick and easy to install
  • Visual colour change
  • Prevent product contamination
  • Rechargeable
  • No energy requirements
  • Constant protection
  • Provide full weather protection
  • Minimise pressure differentials
  • Reduced odour emissions

    For applications with flammable liquids, desiccant drum dryers will assist in flame suppression and reduce the build up of ignitbale vapours
