The CJC Desorber D40 uses the patented desorption principle to separate water from oil. Desorption is based on the principle that heated air can effectively hold large quantities of water. Desorption is based on the principle that heated air can effectively hold large quantities of water. In the Desorber the 80-degree warm oil is met by a counter flow of cold, dry air. The air, heated very quickly by the warm oil, absorbs any water present until saturation is reached.
Water in oil leads to a change in viscosity and reduced filterability and lubricity. Furthermore, water acts catalytically on the oil ageing. Corrosion, Cavitation, wear and bacterial growth, as well as accelerated oil ageing, are the consequences – all factors, which reduce the lifetime of components and oil.
The advantage of the CJC Desorber is that the water separation ability and oil drying is unaffected by viscosity and additive package. The Desorber is ideal for mineral oils as well as for synthetic fluids – even EALs (environmentally friendly lubricants)/biodegradable oils – and is also able to break stable emulsions. The CJC Desorber can maintain the water content within oil systems to very low levels.
