Whether the hydrophilic silica gel (water-attracting) or the hydrophobic adsorbent activated carbon (water-avoiding) is used depends on the objective of the application. If air humidity is to be prevented from entering the system, a silica gel filter is used. On the other hand, if the environment is to be protected from oil aerosols or other pollutants, an activated carbon filter must be used.
