Save maintenance and component expenses 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 and bacterial growth and create regulatory concerns.
Save maintenance and component expenses through the elimination of 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 bacterial growth and produce regulatory concerns. Purging the compartment with air dried with a system utilizing a filter and membrane offers a reliable solution with considerably lower initial and operating costs. The device can be utilized on the 24/7 basis even during washdown procedures (when drying is most needed).
Removing water vapor from air by way of a filter and a membrane
Water, compressor oils and particulate matter can be taken off compressed air (input temperature range =40-120oF as well as the input pressure range = 60-150 psig) employing a coalescing filter along with a hollow membrane module. The coalescing filter removes water droplets, oil and particulate materials with an efficiency of 99.99% at .01 µm and the hollow membrane fibers remove water vapor to offer dry air using a dew point of -7oF from saturated inlet air of 100oF and 100 psig.
Using a cabinet dryer avoids downtime
Cabinet dryers have no moving parts and require minimum maintenance; periodic replacement of a filter can be practiced during routine system shutdowns. As an example, a meat processing plant within the Midwest that used a heater to keep a control panel dry found that it was replacing the keypad every three weeks. After it replaced the heater having a cabinet dryer, it absolutely was easy to operate for 6 months or even more at any given time with no failures, replacing the filter on a routine maintenance basis.
A comparable cabinet drying system was set up on metallic detection system at Dan’s Prize, a division of Moisture Control Cabinets. Before the dryer was employed, it absolutely was required to stop production three times a week to eliminate 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 in spot for about a year, with no maintenance issues.”
Dried compressed air reduces operating costs
The operating price of a filter/membrane based product is considerably lower than that of 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 method is installed, aside from annual cartridge replacement. In the case of the meat processing plant discussed above, a saving of about $25,000/year was taken from eliminating the requirement to replace the user interface and from down time through the replacement time.”
The Moisture Control Cabinets gives an effective, reliable and cheap method of the issue of mold or premature component failure due to moisture. The system fails to require electricity, has no moving parts and xakleh be utilized over a 24/7 basis, even during washdown procedures. The mixture of any coalescing filter as well as a membrane filter provides air using a dew point of -7oF and a relative humidity of 10% or less, making sure cabinets will likely be kept bone dry.
