Dew Point that Activated Alumina can reach

If you wonder the connection between dew point and activated alumina then here, we are explaining the same to you. But before we get into more details let us define dew point first.

What is the dew point?

Dew point is the temperature below which water droplets start to condense and form dew. To reach dew point the air is cooled. This condensation process happens in stages. Once the air is cooled at first it becomes saturated with water vapors, next it forms liquid water and finally upon reaching dew points, the water vapor condenses and forms dew. Dew point measures the atmospheric moisture. Greater the dew point greater will be the moisture content in the atmosphere.

Use of activated alumina ball for better dew point

Activated alumina is used for various industrial applications to remove moisture content or impurities. With excellent surface area, perfect mechanical strength, great resistance to thermal shocks, activated alumina is used in multiple applications. Be it activated alumina for gas drying, activated alumina for fluoride removal or activated alumina for water treatment, all of these procedures require a dew point to be reached -40 ° C.

Conditions such as compressed air dryers where the reaching of dew point is quite an affair, activated alumina can be used. Most of the manufacturers design their activated alumina to give a dew point of -40 ° C (to the minimum) but under certain conditions such high pressure-activated alumina can be used to giver a dew point of -70 ° C.

Make proper use of activated alumina for better dew points. Only buy high-quality and good grade ones and never overuse the activated alumina.
