Desiccant: Activated Alumina F200-E is the best all purpose desiccant for drying air and most other gases with high relative humidity. Dewpoints of -100° can be achieved (depending on dryer). Activated alumina F200-E can be used in both heated and heatless/pressure swing dryers.
Activated Alumina F200-E has: excellent porosity creating torturous paths and extended surface area; high strength against crushing; and very stable physical and chemical characteristics, even in high temperature and corrosive environments.
