Why does the use of an adsorber on barrels & IBC make sense?
Barrels and IBC containers are emptied gradually during their use. To equalize the pressure, air flows in from outside. If hygroscopic substances are stored in the barrels and IBC containers (such as isocyanate and bio-oils), the humidity flowing in with the outside air causes a reduction in the quality of the stored substance. This process is accelerated during temperature fluctuations, especially when temperatures fall below the dew point and condensate forms.
Our GIEBEL breather dryers provide a remedy by drying the incoming air in advance. The desiccant contained in the dehumidifier absorbs the moisture and indicates by a color change when the adsorber is fully loaded and should be replaced.
GIEBEL acid separators are used where the escape of acids from the plant is to be prevented.
