In-Line Desiccators – FAQs

Are these for use with compressed air?

Yes, as well as for most other compressed process gasses.

What line pressures can pipeline dryers (or in-line desiccators) be used with?

Units are available with pressure ratings as high as 60 psig.

Can I get different kinds of desiccant in these?

Yes. These units are available filled with molecular sieve, silica gel, or alumina. However, Type 4A molecular sieve is by far the most commonly requested desiccant for these units. AGM carries a full line of desiccant products and can supply replacement desiccant for pipeline dryers.

Is there a filter on the outlet? If so, what size?

Yes. The outlets on most units are filtered nominally to 25 microns, but finer filters are also available upon request.

Can I get different end fittings?

Yes. However, some fittings might require the use of special adapters.

Can pipeline dryers be refilled?

Yes. By simply unscrewing the inlet end fitting, the old spent desiccant may be poured out and fresh, new desiccant poured in. AGM carries a full line of desiccant products and can supply replacement desiccant for pipeline dryers.

Can I get a drop-in cartridge for these units?

Drop-in cartridges are not available for these units at this time, but may become available in the future.
