Dynalene’s Fluidry® product line consists of moisture removal (or desiccation) systems which helps in maintaining low moisture content in hydrocarbons, silicone-based heat transfer fluids 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
