Vapor Recovery Dryers for Nuclear Applications Nuclear Products

Vapor recovery dryers are designed to remove moisture from air in the reactor building. In a CANDU reactor, they remove heavy water. Moist air is passed through a tower containing moisture-absorbing desiccant. Dry air is exhausted into the building. The desiccant is regenerated using hot, dry air. Both single and dual tower dryers are available.
