Air dryer for laser purge helps protect system's mirrors

December 15, 2009

Parker Hannifin has introduced a line of Balston— air dryers for purging of industrial laser plenums, which protect the laser system's mirrors from dirt and moisture.

The dryers use membrane technology, require no electricity, and have no moving parts. Shop compressed air is filtered to remove all oil and particles greater than 0.01 micron and dried to dew points as low as -40 degrees F. The dryers are available in sizes capable of purging any laser or even an entire shop.
