The MS-R series

MS-R series adsorbers have a housing made of A4 stainless steel. With a filling capacity of 50kg desiccant, they absorb up to 20l water from the air. Thus, large storage tanks can be efficiently ventilated, even in offshore applications. Use in accordance with ATEX product directive 2014/34/EU in zone II 2 G / D IIC T4 is also possible, as is use in accordance with corrosivity category CX. Two large openings allow the loaded silica gel to be quickly removed and replaced by fresh gel. In combination with a venting system and a supply air valve, the air flow into and out of a tank can be controlled in a targeted manner. Due to the optimized design, these adsorbers can be maintained very quickly and at low cost. The wearing parts or the pure desiccant are quickly inserted and the protection of the plant to be ventilated is restored.

Mode of operation

Adsorption – Drying of the supply air

  • The level in the system decreases
  • Humid air is sucked in
  • Uniform flow
  • Air is dried up to 2%rH
  • Silicagel changes color

Dry and clean supply air

Desorption – Separation oil particles

  • The level in the system increases
  • Air is squeezed out
  • Dry, oil-free air regenerates silica gel partially

Low pressure build-up and control of exhaust air

Technical Data


This adsorber is available with and without an inlet valve. In the valve-free version, the sucked-in air flows into the adsorber almost without pressure and is distributed evenly over the cross-section. The valve version has a somewhat higher differential pressure and is used in combination with a venting system.
When the desiccant silica gel flows through, the water molecules are safely removed from the air. The gap volume of the granules is optimally selected with 2 to 5mm grains and guarantees a minimum pressure build-up with simultaneous very good drying efficiency. Thus, at the beginning of the drying process, a residual air humidity of max. 2 % rH and a dew point of -40 °C are achieved. Due to the water absorption, the silica gel in the standard changes color from orange to green. A complete green coloration indicates the end of the product life cycle.

MS-R adsorbers consist of a stainless steel A4 housing, silica gel orange and FKM seals. They are used for aeration of oils and lubricants, fuels, isocyanates, chemicals and solvents in large storage tanks.

Spare part kits

Sustainability starts with using product components for as long as their life cycle allows and replacing only those components that show signs of wear. With our spare parts kits for the refillable adsorber series, we ensure that you can replace each individual component of an adsorber as needed.

For example, the desiccant in our adsorbers becomes loaded during use, increasingly loses its ability to adsorb moisture and needs to be replaced, but the adsorber housing is particularly durable. Our refillable adsorbers can therefore be easily opened and the desiccant replaced. Seals, particle filters & activated carbon discs, on the other hand, can withstand a few replacement cycles, depending on the load. However, we recommend replacing them after 4-5 replacement cycles at the latest to ensure smooth operation of the adsorbers.

Our spare parts kits include seals, particle filters, activated carbon discs and other components that match the respective adsorber series. The matching desiccants for the adsorbers are available separately and in different size classes.
