Dryer for sensitive applications

Finite FDD Series dryer system provides clean, dry air for all types of moisture-sensitive pneumatic applications. The dryer, with 1/4-1-in. NPT ports, removes water vapor and aerosols at point-of-use applications with intermittent flows to 60-scfm. The dryer provides pressure dewpoints to -40 F and does not require steady flow for constant dewpoint suppression.

Keep cool in blackouts

MovinCool portable air conditioners can be used with back-up generators, which may not have enough power to run central air conditioners. The units do not require costly installation and can simply be rolled in, plugged in, and turned on, saving expensive HVAC contractor fees. In times of emergency they can be used in the IT department, for example, to eliminate the risk of computer system failure by overheating.
