Air Drying / Compressed Air

Adsorption dryers are part of every modern compressed air and energy supply. The adsorbent type, an essential component of each adsorption dryer, is defined by the quality of the product air but also has a major effect on efficiency of the whole drying system. BASF offers wide variety of high performance desiccants to meet the stringent specs of modern industrial compressed air systems.

Compressed Air Drying Solutions

The compression of humid ambient air, for example in an industrial application, produces liquid water by condensation. If the application does not allow moisture for chemical-physical reasons or danger arises due to the precipitation of the moisture, the air must be dried before compression.

F-200

Activated Alumina for Liquid and Gas Drying BASF F-200 is a smooth sphere of activated alumina produced by BASF’s unique manufacturing process. F200 is an excellent desiccant for drying a wide variety of liquids and gases. Although all molecules are adsorbed to some extent on F-200 activated alumina, those molecules having the highest polarity are preferentially absorbed. Stream conditions such as pressure, concentration and molecular weight of the molecules, temperature and site competing molecules affect the efficiency of adsorption. F-200 is available in nominal sizes of 1/16", 1/8", 3/16" and 1/4" spheres.
