Our units used to come with a grey filter dryer which was used to attach to the input of the solvent recovery pump. It was used to mitigate the accumulation of moisture in the solvent.
Presently, we are offering more advanced filter dryers which are called, “Desiccant Tubes.” These tubes cover much more surface area and allow you to replace the desiccant inside. Similarly to the old grenades, the desiccant tubes can be dried over the course of a few hours in an oven at 300F-450F. Re-drying the desiccant in this manner allows for optimal moisture absorption, and is recommended after each use of the extractor.
