The Dehydration R&D Center opened by SPX Flow in Ocala, Fla., allows customers to test products to international standards and validate product performance. Center personnel can help customers validate compressed-air dryers, filtration media, condensate drain valves and desiccant material. SPX Flow’s brands include Hankison, Deltech, Pneumatic Products, Delair and Jemaco.
SPX Flow constructed an environmentally controlled laboratory to test refrigerated, desiccant and membrane dryers to the ISO 8573-1 air purity standard. The test laboratory creates variable ambient conditions and measures product performance. Full instrumentation and PC-based data-acquisition equipment records pressure dewpoint, pressure drop and power consumption.
