Finishing of the leather as the final end-product involves various mechanically controlled automated processes like buffing, polishing, lacquering etc. All the machines used for these processes are generally, pneumatically-operated.
Moisture (Condensation or liquid water) in Compressed air stream leads to clogging of valves, operation failure, equipment malfunctions corrosion thereby increasing down time and increased maintenance cost of Pneumatic controls.
Moisture laden Compressed Air also result leather absorbing moisture leading to problems like
Dull finish of end product
Loss of leather gloss
Fungus growth on the finished product
Dry, quality compressed air is an absolute must for Leather Industry.
The Delair Solution
The only positive means of moisture removal from the compressed air stream is the installation of an air dryer. Water vapour can economically be removed by two methods; one is cooling the air and the other method is by adsorption.
Delair offers a wide range of both refrigeration dryers and adsorption dryers for all your needs.
For general plant and instrumentation air where requirement is between 3°C PDP to 6°C PDP, delair refrigeration dryers, – FDI Series, does the job.
If the application requires extra dry air and PDP below 2°C then delair has a large range of adsorption Dryers – DC Series and engineered systems.
