Mazeppa, Minnesota — March 21, 2016 — Walmec North American has just released the WNA AMD-035 Membrane Dryer for use in compressed air systems. The unit has a 4-stage pre-filtration that Walmec North America says is critical to the longevity and function of the membrane dryer. It has a flow rating of 35 standard cubic feet per minute and maximum working pressures of 150 psi.
The first and second stage filters remove moisture, liquids, dust, rust, scale and other contaminants down to 5 microns. An automatic float drain under the second stage filter opens and expels all collected liquids whenever an ounce or more is present. It is fully automatic with no continuous air loss. The third and fourth stages remove any remaining particles down to .01 microns as well as absorbing any remaining moisture or oil vapours. The Membrane Dryer lowers the humidity level by venting it into the surrounding atmosphere. A flexible input hose assembly eliminates the hazards of damage from vibrations in piped compressed air systems and allows the Membrane Dryer itself to be installed in any position.
The 4-stage pre-filtration includes differential pressure gauges and comes complete with mounting brackets. The differential pressure gauges provide a visual indication of required maintenance, which a statement from the company says is easily done by installing the appropriate service kits, with no need to remove the unit from the compressed air system.
