Laboratory Gas Drying Unit - EQ-GD-01-LD

In stock
Item Number: EQ-GD-01-LD

The Laboratory Air and Gas Drying unit is an all-purpose dryer. This unit is suitable for most laboratory applications. It will dry air or inert gas to a dew point of -100° F  ( -73°C) at atmospheric pressure or pressures up to 90 psig. A simple connection by a rubber hose to the bottom inlet of the dryer provides an immediate flow of dry air or gas.  Continuous flows are possible with two units in the line and the necessary valves so that the exhausted column may be refilled while the alternate column remains in use.



Note: Do not use this dryer in the presence of vapors or liquids containing phosphate esters, synthetic lubricants, hydrocarbon solvents, methanol, acetone, lacquer solvents, or other organics.

APPLICATIONS:  The Laboratory Gas Drying Unit can be used anywhere to provide dry air or gas for applications especially for a glove box which requires drying gas with humidity (RH) < 2%
Color Change:
The Indicating desiccant 
constants visual assurance of active desiccant. When active, the desiccant has a distinct blue color. When exhausted, it turns pink. The zone between the two colors in the column may be a purple color and should be a sharp narrow band when the flow rate is at equilibrium.
The exhausted desiccant can be regenerated by heating it at 210°C for 2 hours ( better in vacuum oven )    and restore the drying capacity
Construction:   Column is molded polycarbonate. Desiccant supports and coil spring are stainless steel. Polycarbonate cap is fitted with o-ring gasket and  is held firmly in place between felt filters.
Dimensions:   2 5/8" x 11 3/8"
Max working pressure:   90 psig
Inlet and outlet connectors are SS 1/8 NPT female fittings
Desiccant:   1 1/4 Ib. 8 mesh  ( refill the desiccant will cost  $39.95 )
Water capacity:   50 grams
Recommended flow rate:   200 liters per hour or 0.1 scfm for maximum efficiency
Pressure drop:   <.01 psi at 200 lph
Application Notes One filter only can filter 2-3 tanks gas depended on gas purity.   You may connect 3-4 filters together to dry larger container.  For glove box, suggest using our automatic drying unit at related product below
