Multisorb Technologies, Inc: Custom Thermoformed Bags
Versatility and Flexibility for Mobile and Stationary Air Conditioningand Refrigeration SystemsMultisorb Technologies offers a complete selection of Thermoformed DesiccantBags specifically designed to solve moisture problems associated with airconditioning and refrigeration systems, both mobile and stationaryapplications.
Our engineers can design Thermoformed Desiccant Bags in many shapes and
sizes to fit into just about any A/C or refrigeration application. The
unique bags feature proprietary Electrostitch® sealing technology to ensure
product reliability for maximum performance.
Thermoformed Desiccant Bags offer distinct advantages for A/C and
refrigeration systems to help:
* Prevent internal corrosion
* Improve system reliability
* Protect system components
* Extend system life
Typical applications include:
* Automobile A/C systems
* Refrigerated transportation vehicles
* Truck and bus A/C systems
* Commercial/residential A/C systems
* Refrigerated warehouses/coolers
* Industrial cooling systems
Why use desiccants in air conditioning and refrigeration systems?
Moisture collects within any air conditioning or refrigeration system even
though the system is sealed. Refrigerant breakdown and the reaction of
system contaminants with this moisture can lead to internal corrosion
especially in thin gauge flow tubes fins evaporators and other system
Desiccants adsorb moisture that collects within components to eliminate the
potential for internal corrosion. They provide ongoing protection against
moisture to help improve system reliability and extend the life of the
entire A/C or refrigeration system.
Thermoformed Desiccant Bags have many benefits:
Thermoformed Desiccant Bags are designed to provide a cost-effective
solution to problems associated with loose fill packed bed desiccants.
*Won't damage system components - Unlike loose desiccant materials
which can leak into an A/C or refrigeration system clogging passages and
damaging components such as a compressor Thermoformed Bags hold the
desiccant in a durable compact polyester felt package. Proprietary
Electrostitch sealing technology virtually eliminates the potential for
leakage of loose desiccant materials. In addition the bags' mesh material
can filter other impurities from the system's refrigerant and lubricating
Loose fill packed bed desiccants used in a receiver drier can leak
into the A/C system where it can clog passages and damage components such as moving compressor parts.
Thermoformed Bags hold the desiccant virtually eliminating the potential
for leakage of loose desiccant materials.
* Provide easy assembly to reduce labor costs - The Thermoformed bags
enable easy installation and can be integrated with automated assembly lines
for reduced labor costs and increased production efficiency. In receiver
dryers loose fill desiccants typically involve hand-pouring of the
desiccant material and require installation of metal plates and fiberglass
pads to hold the material in place. SorbaRing® thermoformed bags can
eliminate these metal plates fiberglass pads and other components to
simplify design and purchasing requirements. For accumulator dryers we
offer a unique SaddleForm® saddle bag design that is self-retaining so it
stays in place once installed.
* Meet the exact specifications of your application - They are available
in three standard forms -- SorbaRing® Bags SaddleForm® Bags and Cups.
Thermoformed Desiccant Bags come in an array of sizes and shapes and can be
designed for your specific applications.
