StylAir's SHL Series - More Info

The StylAir regenerative desiccant dryer is a fully automatic unit designed to dry compressed air or gas to meet or exceed the customer's requirements. The dryer consists of dual drying chambers which are alternately cycled through drying and regeneration cycles. One chamber is drying air at all times.

The wet, compressed process air flows through one drying tower where water vapor is adsorbed into the desiccant - an inert, hygroscopic material with an enormous surface to mass ratio. The off-stream drying tower is regenerated by taking a small amount of the dried process air (purge) and passing it through its bed at low (atmospheric) pressure. The moisture trapped in the desiccant is released and is carried off by the purge flow and exhausted to atmosphere.
