Norgren animation bring AMT Dryers to life

November 4 2014, posted in News

Showcasing a patented breakthough technology, a new animated video has been launched to highlight the capabilities of its Adsorbent Media Tube (AMT) compressed air dryer for the rail industry.

Clean, dry air is essential for the safe and cost-effective operation of critical rail applications. Norgren’s AMT dryers deliver Engineering Advantage through a highly efficient pre-filtration sequence followed by turbulence removal and pressure reduction, providing clean, dry air for downstream systems.

Vibration tested to BS EN 61373:2010 standard, the revolutionary AMT dryer offers up to six years (or 18,000 service hours) of consistent drying performance and produces no harmful by-products. As the video’s high-definition animations take viewers through the assembly and critical components of the system, further benefits are revealed, including the option to run two columns simultaneously for high-duty applications.

Mark Wrigley of Norgren commented: “Developed specifically for challenging rail industry applications, AMT dryers have been well-received since launch and used in high profile mass transit systems in North America, Europe and south-east Asia.

“Highlighting the features and benefits of each stage in the air drying process, the video takes customers through our patented system which can be designed to suit exact specifications for maximum water removal and reduced total cost of ownership.”
