Description

  • PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

    Activated alumina is an aluminum oxide bead with an extremely porous structure and high surface area-to-mass ratio. Activated alumina has a wide variety of applications, including compressed air and gas drying.

    In compressed air and gas drying applications, activated alumina will achieve dew points -40°F to -100°F, depending on the dryer design.

    In compressed air desiccant dryers, a 1/8″ (2-5 mm) activated alumina bead is most commonly used. The ¼” (5-10 mm) activated alumina bead is typically used as a pre-bed for supporting large desiccant beds or as a buffer for silica gel beds. The 3/16″ (5-10 mm) bead is used when pressure drop and surface area requirements fall between the 1/8″ and ¼” material.

    Features and Benefits

    • High adsorption capacity for reducing initial cost, energy consumption, and operating costs
    • Low abrasion for ensuring minimal dusting and a low pressure drop
    • Resistant to liquid water slugging resulting from the failure of up stream after-coolers, separators, or drain traps.
    • The adsorption capacity of the desiccant can be restored after complete regeneration.
    • High crush strength for limiting dusting during loading of desiccant into dryer towers
    • Uniform bead size minimizes pressure drop, channeling, and ensures utilization of the full desiccant bed
    • In regenerative drying systems, Van Air activated alumina beds are sized for a service life of 2-5 years
    • Available in 25lb pails, 50lb bags, 375lb steel drums and 2,000lb bulk bags
