The desiccant rotor is a high capacity desiccant media captivated in a circumference rim with radial spokes. The spokes attach to a central hub with integral sealed ball bearings. The sealed bearings ride on a solid center shaft. The rotor is held in place with a lock ring on each side the desiccant material, usually a silica gel impregnated into a support. This looks like a honeycomb, which is open on both ends. Air passes through the honeycomb passages, giving up moisture to the desiccant contained in the walls of the honeycomb cells. The desiccant structure is formed into the shape of a wheel. The wheel constantly rotates through two separate air streams. The first stream, called the process air. Is dries by the desiccant. The second air stream, called reactivation or regeneration air, is heated. It dries the desiccant.
