Low Pressure Gases
This application covers the drying of air or gas for material handling, dry rooms, and general space dehumidification. We are all familiar with the clogging of salt shakers on the humid days of summer. Similarly, powered industrial materials can be hygroscopic in nature and adsorb water vapor from the atmosphere causing them to lump and clog handling equipment.
Lectrodryers have been used for removing atmospheric moisture from the air in contact with these hygroscopic materials, keeping them free-flowing in conveying systems, hoppers, bins, etc.
In the field of space dehumidification, many materials are package, tableted, and processed in low relative humidities to duplicate wintertime humidities at all times during the year.
