Emerson’s New Air Dryers Quadruple Maintenance Intervals in Rail Applications
Patented adsorbent drying material removes humidity from compressed air systems, reduces downtime, energy and life-cycle costs by extending maintenance schedules
Germany (June 22, 2020) – Today Emerson introduced two new
compressed air dryers designed to significantly extend maintenance intervals,
minimize downtime and reduce energy costs in rail applications, including
brakes and door control. Typically, air dryers have an average service interval
of less than two years. The AVENTICSTM RDD (Roll-Up Dessicant Drying) and
RDDmin air dryers, have a service interval of eight years or 25,000 operating
hours. The new products feature a proprietary adsorption medium that removes
humidity from compressed air systems more efficiently, reducing energy usage
with a smaller envelope size and weight. The dryers’ shock- and
vibration-resistant design further enhances their reliability in tough rail
To solve these problems, Emerson’s AVENTICS RDD technology uses adsorbent crystals immobilized in a durable polymer support structure, which is produced in a continuously embossed sheet and rolled up to tightly fit into a barrel-type housing for high shock and vibration resistance. Unlike com...
To solve these problems, Emerson’s AVENTICS RDD technology
uses adsorbent crystals immobilized in a durable polymer support structure,
which is produced in a continuously embossed sheet and rolled up to tightly fit
into a barrel-type housing for high shock and vibration resistance. Unlike
competing products using desiccant beats, the AVENTICS dryers resist excessive
water loading and fully recover afterwards. This ensures constant performance
throughout the lifetime of the product and reduced life-cycle costs.

Solenoid Valve Design Factors Whitepaper
Solenoid valves are used in a broad range of demanding industry applications. Whether they perform millions of cycles or spend long periods on standby, solenoid valves must perform the right way at the right time — every time. In this whitepaper, you will learn more on how different design factors impact safety and reliability, especially in critical applications requiring Emergency Shutdown (ESD). You’ll also discover the significant advantages of robust, low friction seal designs and how they can help increase the long-term reliability of your process control applications.
