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.


Make use of our best practice industrial services

You can count on our experts

In order to precisely calculate the demand in the industry and to develop tailor-made concepts for climate conditioning experienced climate specialists are needed. Rely on our team of experts as well as the industrial services: We analyse the individual requirement situation with you present on site, determine the specific demand for devices and develop a tailor-made project solution right up to the exact positioning of the devices.

Before the planned stationary units are installed, our service team first works with mobile versions of the drying units as part of a trial run. These can be put up without any difficulty or the need for structural changes.

During this validation phase we document all relevant climate parameters such as air temperature, relative humidity, dew point or flow rate for a final optimization of the requirement calculation.

Trotec is the only provider of this advantage:

Thanks to the unique option of non-binding trial operation you will invest solely in solutions which have verifiably proven their worth in everyday operation meeting your individual on-site requirements. The stationary units will not be ordered until you are fully satisfied with our concept. The only costs incurred consist of an inexpensive hiring flat rate for the time of test operation.

Just give us a call at +49 2452 963-777 – our industry consultants will be pleased to help you personally and provide information regarding our best practice industrial services. Or send a request indicating your personal requirements directly to our industry experts. We will answer promptly!

Since every industrial undertaking has characteristic process flows, installations and facilities, every air treatment solution demands case-specific device configurations. All in all, the combined effects of air currents, humidity conditions and temperature fluctuations are often hard to calculate on a purely theoretical basis, e.g. in airlock areas or on conveying paths. The consequence: Unnecessary additional costs due to an overestimated demand or – even worse – solutions not working sufficiently in real life.

Upon request, we also produce customized desiccant dehumidifiers as special models

Upon request, we will readily produce tailor-made desiccant dehumidifiers as special models “made in Germany” perfectly geared to your needs, e.g.:

  • TTR industrial desiccant dehumidifiers with hygienic design
  • TTR industrial desiccant dehumidifiers for PWIS-free dry air
  • TTR industrial desiccant dehumidifiers with extremely low dew point

Makes use of the possibility of having special models with tailored components for your individual needs planned, designed and manufactured in close consultation with our specialists.

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.
