Walmec North America has introduced the WNA AMD-035 Membrane dryer, designed for compressed-air applications that require ultra-clean, ultra-dry air.
The dryer has four-stage pre-filtration, a flow rating of 35 SCFM, and a maximum working pressure of 150 psi.
The dryer’s first- and second-stage filters remove moisture, liquids, dust, rust, scale and other contaminants to 5 microns. A fully automatic float drain under the second-stage filter opens and expels all collected liquids whenever an ounce or more is present.
The third and fourth stages remove remaining particles down to .01 microns and absorb any remaining moisture or oil vapors.
The dryer lowers the humidity level by venting it harmlessly into the atmosphere. A flexible input hose assembly eliminates the risk of vibration damage and allows installation of the dryer in any position.
The dryer is designed for use with waterborne paints or other sensitive tasks that “require the highest standard of clean and dry compressed air,” says the manufacturer, which calls the unit easy to install, use and maintain.
The unit includes mounting brackets and differential pressure gauges that provide a visual indication of required maintenance, which can be performed by installing the appropriate service kits. There is no need to remove the unit from the compressed air system.
