Desorbers (Water Removal)

CJC™ Desorbers are patented products designed to remove water from oil types which either bind and emulsify water or are high viscosity oil (up to ISO VG 1000). CJC™ Desorbers are ideal for use in applications in which water ingress is a continuous and significant problem, whether for lubrication oil, gear oil or hydraulic oil. CJC™ Desorbers heat oil slightly before it meets a counter flow of cool air in the desorber housing. Air heated by the oil expands, drawing water from the oil. The subsequent air-cooling condenses the water and the dry air is re-used for removing water from incoming oil.

 

CJC™ Desorbers remove water from all kinds of oils effectively and reliably. The results are measurable benefits that include fewer unscheduled production stops, increased system component lifetime, increased productivity and fewer oil changes. The CJC™ Desorbers product range is flexible and scalable, suitable for oil systems containing only a few litres of oil as well as systems with up to 50,000 litres. CJC™ Desorbers are well known for ensuring trouble-free operation of oil systems in steel mills, paper mills and more.

We offer the following Desorbers:
 
Desorber D10

The compact CJC™ Desorber D10 is designed to remove water from oil through the patented desorption principle. The desorption process is based on the principle that heated air can effectively hold large quantities of water. In the Desorber, oil preheated to 60°C is met by a counter flow of cold, dry air. The air, heated very quickly by the hot oil, will absorb any water present until saturation is reached.


The advantage of the CJC™ Desorber D10 is that it is unaffected by viscosity and additive packages. The Desorber treats mineral oils as well as synthetic fluids, and even breaks stable emulsions. The Desorber maintains system water content to very low levels.

Desorber D30

Water in oil leads to reduced viscosity, reduced filterability, reduced lubricity, formation of rust, bacterial growth and increased oil oxidation - all factors that lead to reduced lifetime of both components and oil.

 

Desorber D30 is designed to remove water from oil through the patented desorption principle. The desorption process is based on the principle that heated air can effectively hold large quantities of water. In the Desorber, oil preheated to 70°C is met by a counter flow of cold,
dry air. The air, heated very quickly by the hot oil, will absorb any water present until saturation is reached.


The advantage of the Desorber D30 is that it is unaffected by viscosity and additive packages. The Desorber treats mineral oils as well as synthetic fluids, and even breaks stable emulsions. The Desorber maintains system water content to very low levels.
