ETI's RCD-2 Low Cost Passive Self-Pumping´┐Ż Dehydrator (1 cu/ft drying capacity)
Keep waveguide and coax dry
Preliminary RFQ Price: $
You save $15.00!
Additional Product Specs
Although it contains just one moving part, the Patented RCD-2 Passive Dehydrator dries waveguide and coax in fixed, mobile and solar powered systems with volumes up to one cubic foot. It eliminates the need to operate pressurization equipment from emergency power when used as a backup for mechanical systems. The RCD-2 may also be used to protect equipment from moisture damage during transit and unheated storage.
Maximum dehydrated volume: One cubic foot
Desiccant replacement/regeneration interval: Typically 12 to 18 months, or more
Rated pressure: Up to 8 psig
Maximum pressure: 20 psig
Desiccant system: Blend of activated alumina and silica gel that indicates when service is needed
Check valve sensitivity: Nominally 0.1 psig
The RCD-2 provides a 1/8" male NPT fitting. Gas diffusion insures that the desiccant is exposed to any water vapor present in the system. The RCD-2 works best when the waveguide or coax system is tightly sealed.
The RCD-2 uses ambient temperature variations for pressurization. When the temperature drops, the system pressure becomes negative which opens the RCD-2 check valve. Ambient air is drawn in through the desiccant. Internal pressure increases with ambient temperature, closing the check valve and pressurizing the system.
The RCD-2 employs a blend of silica gel and activated alumina desiccants. This combination provides effective drying while indicating when desiccant regeneration is required. The desiccant can either be replaced or regenerated by heating in a convection oven. Depending upon the system volume and tightness along with environmental conditions at the site, the desiccant lasts 12 to 18 months, or longer, before requiring regeneration or replacement. Conditions such as a leaky system and damp climate may reduce desiccant longevity.
No power required
Long desiccant life
Desiccant indicates when to regenerate/replace
