Silica Gel Rotor
THE SILICA GEL ROTOR THAT STANDS UP TO CLOSE EXAMINATION
This rotor matrix is manufactured from alternate layers of flat and corrugated sheets of silica gel. It is made to form a vast number of axial air channels running parallel through the structure. The large internal surface area combined with the special micro structure of silica gel material, ensures maximum contact area and transferability between the air and the desiccant to give the rotor an extremely high capacity for adsorbing water vapor.
MAJOR ADVANTAGES OF THE SILICA GEL ROTOR
There is no problem associated with passing saturated air through the rotor as the dehumidification process is based on physical adsorption, not chemical absorption. Dust deposits on the rotor surface can be flushed away with water. Oily and sticky deposits can be removed with detergents. As a result, the silica gel firmly bonded with the matrix base. It is not possible to have carry over of desiccant material with the airflow.
Whilst the dryer is out of operation, the rotor is not affected by over saturation. Therefore, no precautions are required during shutting down or restarting operation. The rotor has a high mechanical strength, and is non-combustible.
Bacteriostatic thanks to inorganic materials. According to tests done by USR and the Gas Research Institute, USA, most bacteria in the air passing silica gel rotor are killed.
