Save maintenance and component costs by eliminating moisture in electrical cabinets Moisture in electrical cabinets, control panels and motor compartments can affect plant efficiency and product quality, leading to significant downtime and expensive repairs. This is particularly critical in food processing industries, since moisture can lead to mold or bacterial growth and create regulatory concerns.
Save maintenance and component expenses by eliminating moisture in electrical cabinets
Moisture in Dry Storage Cabinets, control panels and motor compartments can affect plant efficiency and product quality, leading to significant downtime and dear repairs. This is especially critical in food processing industries, since moisture can lead to mold and/or bacterial growth and produce regulatory concerns. Purging the compartment with air dried by way of a system using a filter and membrane supplies a reliable solution with considerably lower initial and operating costs. The device can be utilized over a 24/7 basis even during washdown procedures (when drying is most needed).
Removing water vapor from air by way of a filter as well as a membrane
Water, compressor oils and particulate matter can be removed from compressed air (input temperature range =40-120oF and also the input pressure range = 60-150 psig) employing a coalescing filter and a hollow membrane module. The coalescing filter removes water droplets, oil and particulate materials having an efficiency of 99.99% at .01 µm and also the hollow membrane fibers remove water vapor to provide dry air using a dew point of -7oF from saturated inlet air of 100oF and 100 psig.
Utilizing a cabinet dryer avoids downtime
Cabinet dryers have zero moving parts and require minimum maintenance; periodic replacing a filter can be practiced during routine system shutdowns. As an example, a meat processing plant in the Midwest that used a heater to maintain a user interface dry found it was replacing the keypad every three weeks. After it replaced the heater using a cabinet dryer, it was easy to operate for half a year or more at any given time with no failures, replacing the filter over a routine maintenance basis.
A similar cabinet drying system was placed on metallic detection system at Dan’s Prize, a division of Moisture Control Cabinets. Before the dryer was employed, it was essential to stop production 3 x a week to remove moisture through the detector. Based on Tom Breslin, Manager of Plant Engineering, “once we installed our dryer system, the situation went away. The dryer has been doing place for in regards to a year, without any maintenance issues.”
Dried compressed air reduces operating costs
The operating cost of a filter/membrane based system is considerably lower compared to alternative systems. As an example, Lee Clarkson, production engineer at Ross Industries in Midland VA, a manufacturer of meat tenderizers, food packaging equipment, and food processing systems, reports “essentially no operating costs for the membrane dryer when the product is installed, aside from annual cartridge replacement. In the case of the meat processing plant discussed above, a saving of around $25,000/year was obtained from eliminating the need to replace the user interface and from down time throughout the replacement time.”
The Dehumidifying Dry Cabinets provides an effective, reliable and inexpensive approach to the situation of mold or premature component failure because of moisture. The device will not require electricity, has no moving parts and xakleh be utilized on the 24/7 basis, even during washdown procedures. The combination of a coalescing filter along with a membrane filter provides air using a dew point of -7oF and a relative humidity of 10% or less, making sure cabinets is going to be kept bone dry.
