Definition : Dryers designed to remove moisture from central healthcare facility medical-air systems; these dryers use technologies such as refrigeration, desiccant adsorption, and membrane filtration to remove water from the air. Water is usually introduced in the medical-air system during the manufacturing process by the compression of ambient air, which may be rich in humidity. Medical-air dryers may be equipped with filters for removing liquid oil aerosols and mists and with purifiers for removing solid and liquid particles and gaseous impurities such as carbon monoxide; these devices are frequently included as an integral part of medical-air supply systems.
