Product Description

CableWave APD-20 Dehydrator: New Cost $1795



The APD20 series Automatic Pressurization Dehydrator is designed for reliable pressurization of
elliptical waveguide, coaxial cable and rigid transmission line systems. The dehydrator includes a
self contained completely automated air drying system that utilizes a pressure swing moisture
absorption cycle to provide pressurized dry air while continuously purging the collected moisture to
the atmosphere. This eliminates the need for replacement or manual reactivation of the desiccant
and makes our APD20 and APD70 series dehydrators ideal for unattended operation at even
remote sites. Dehydrators are also suitable for the average manned working environment since they
typically run less than 5% of the time. In most normal applications, APD series dehydrators can be
expected to operate for up to five years before any maintenance activities are required.
The APD-20 is rated at .2 SCFM(.09 liter/sec) and -40°F (-40°C) dry air dew point output at a 95°F
(35°C) 95% relative humidity input. For normal room environments the dehydrator output air has a
typical dew point of -55°F (-46°C). System pressure is controlled by the dehydrator pressure switch
settings. Normally, this is factory adjusted to 3 psig (20.7kPa) “on” and 5 psig (34.5 kPa) “off”, but
may be readjusted in the field to operate anywhere between 1.5 and 10 psig (10.3 kPa and 68.9
kPa). An internal 40 psig check valve guarantees that the customer system stays isolated from the
dehydrator’s internal system and prevents loss of system pressure due to leakage in the dehydrator.
For additional safety, a standard low pressure alarm switch factory-set at 1 psig (6.9 kPa), is installed
in the dehydrator. The alarm switch contains a set of SPST contacts that can be used for both local
and remote monitoring or alarming. Additional standard features include a 0-15 psig pressure gauge,
indicating power light, and a visual moisture monitor which is dark blue when dry and turns pink
when wet. 

Unit has been reconditioned and fully tested. Very little usage time.
