Dynalene’s Fluidry® product line consists of moisture removal (or desiccation) systems which helps in maintaining low moisture content in hydrocarbons, silicone oils (Syltherm 800 and XLT) and transformer oil (insulation oil). These high-capacity molecular sieve-based systems are also designed for effective moisture removal from refrigerants and lubricants.
Maintaining low moisture content in low- and high-temperature heat transfer fluids is crucial to attaining or maintaining designed system efficiency. Moisture, which can enter into a fluid system due to improper seals, improper handling, system leaks, or malfunctioning driers, can cause system failures. Moisture in hydrocarbons operated below 0°C can form ice crystals that may clog valves and form a coating on heat exchanger surfaces, affecting the operational efficiency of the refrigeration system. In high-temperature applications, any moisture could turn to steam, which may increase internal pressure resulting in an eruption. Additionally, moisture in hydrocarbon- and silicone-based heat transfer fluids causes formation of acids, resulting in metal corrosion and chemical damage to gasket materials
