Dehumidification solutions for the chemical industry

Dehumidifying when processing hygroscopic materials

Dehumidification solutions for the chemical industry

Whether you're dealing with pigments, plastic granules or fertilizers: In the chemical industry, hygroscopic bulk material must be consistently protected against humidity. The industrial dryers and dehumidifiers of the Trotec Group ensure full room air control in the entire production chain.

In the chemical industry e.g. the reliable pourability of bulk material is continually endangered by humidity. Another challenge in the storage and logistics sector besides process air conditioning in the individual processing steps is room air conditioning. Here, too, the humidity level must be constant so that chemicals as well as packaging and labels retain their optimum state.

Industrial dryers and dehumidifiers also available as upgrade system

The Trotec Group supplies several mobile and stationary high-performance devices for the necessary dehumidification or drying, which ensure that bulk material is not going lumpy or rendered entirely unusable and that hauling paths aren't blocked. In combination with your existing ventilation or heating and cooling systems as well as our measuring devices consistent room air conditions can be achieved with manageable effort – also available as upgrade solution without the need for elaborate conversions.

Tried and tested! Safety owing to the Trotec industrial services

With the industrial services the realization of your dehumidification concept is perfectly safe: Prior to the installation of stationary industrial dryers or dehumidifiers we analyse the functionality of our solution using mobile devices. In doing so, climate data is transferred to our server during trial operation by means of mobile remote monitoring. Stationary solutions are not being used until it has been proven that dehumidification all around the bulk material is completely under control. Guaranteed.

Application examples for the chemical industry

  • Air conditioning industrial processes

    Concepts with stationary or mobile dehumidification are frequently used for the process air conditioning in the industry. Often drier air is required locally in machines, plants or individual operating processes – a constant supply regardless of the surrounding conditions. For this purpose, the Trotec Group provides powerful adsorption dryers for industrial customers.

  • Cable repair

    In the industrial sector, cables are often exposed to the toughest environmental conditions. Consequently, defects occur causing an interruption of the necessary power supply – in many cases for a longer period of time. To avoid serious production losses or to perform maintenance work as quickly as possible, cable breaks and defects are located with the help of infrared thermography. Cables used...

  • Dehumidification when filling & packing

    The humidity level during filling and packing in the chemical and pharmaceutical production must be precisely controlled. After all, the damage would be immense should hygroscopic products go lumpy, start to stick or their shelf life decrease. Using our adsorption dryers, process air conditioning is no problem.

  • Dehumidification in fertilizer storage facilities

    The production of hygroscopic materials in the chemical industry requires intuition and sure instincts. After all, the substances love water and readily absorb the moisture contained in the ambient air. And this can have disastrous economic consequences. As it binds water, the material starts sticking together and clumping, and may become unusable in the worst case. One example are fertilizers. If...

  • Dehumidifying & air cleaning in storages

    The Trotec Group provides different dehumidification solutions – from the condensation dehumidifiers of the DH series to the adsorption dryers of the TTR series. Both are available as mobile and stationary versions. We offer the right dehumidification technology for every depot or dispatch warehouse. Innovative measuring devices and data loggers complete the dehumidification concept for storage...

  • Drying compressed air

    The most frequent causes for a production stop are too much water vapour in the machines and installations, and corrosion inside the pipelines. Therefore, too humid compressed air should be avoided by all means. An effective option is the use of high-performance dehumidifiers. The answer to the question of how dry the compressed air has to be in order to guarantee optimum production conditions and...

  • Drying hygroscopic bulk material

    Varying and too high humidity values can ruin the pourability of powders and granules – and thus entail high consequential costs. In order for hygroscopic bulk material not to go lumpy nor to block hauling paths, the entire air in the chemical and pharmaceutical production must be pre-dried. Using adsorption dryers of the TTR series that's no problem.

  • Drying after silo cleaning

    After the cleaning of storage containers and silos you have to count on them to be fully dried for new bulk material to be protected against moisture from the beginning. And since drying can be effected in a quick and economical manner, we advise decision makers from the chemical and pharmaceutical industry to consider our high-performance dryers of the TTR series.
