VENT DRIER SYSTEMS FOR DRUMS AND SMALL TANKS
This DRIERITE Disposable Desiccant Cartridge (Stock No. 40451) dries displacement air entering storage drums to -100° F dewpoint. It prevents condensation of water vapor and resulting contamination. The indicator window turns from blue to pink when the cartridge is exhausted. When used with the adapters shown here, these cartridges provide economical and versatile means for preventing moisture contamination in drums and small tanks.
Refillable Indicating Vent Drier
This DRIERITE Drier (Stock No. 50068) is an alternative to the disposable cartridge. It is designed for use with the DRIERITE drum adapter (#50001). The clear polycarbonate plastic column is filled with Indicating DRIERITE which provides a visual indication of the extent of desiccant exhaustion. The use of stock No. 26810 Lab Unit Wrenches is recommended for cap removal.
The DRIERITE Drum Adapter (Stock No. 50001) provides convenient means for connecting either the disposable cartridge (Stock No. 40451) or the refillable vent drier (Stock No. 50068) to a storage drum. Refer to the Technical Data Section drawing. It is easy to place a vent drier system on any drum. Just install the drum adapter in the bung of the drum. Puncture both ends of the disposable cartridge (or remove plugs from the refillable vent drier). Insert the cartridge (or refillable vent drier) into the rubber hose and tighten the hose clamps. Once installed, material can be withdrawn from the drum without being contaminated with moisture. The Drum Adapter (Stock No. 50001) will thread into either a 2" or a 3/4" bung. The Cartridge Holder (Stock No. 50003) is an alternative to the Drum Adapter and provides a hose barb connection for 1/4" and 3/8" flexible tubing.
