Effective protection

The new ELIMINATOR® 1.5 in3 filter drier from Danfoss has been optimized for glass door merchandisers and other light commercial applications. It is specially designed to minimize the amount of refrigeration system charge and assists designers in meeting the strict 150g system limits when using flammable refrigerants such as R290 (propane). Filter driers keep refrigeration systems dry and clean to protect against corrosion and other contamination that may impede system performance or result in the breakdown of the refrigeration unit. An effective filter drier also ensures that oil and refrigerant do not decompose thus extending system performance and life.

The simple pull-off cap makes the new filter drier easy to mount

The ELIMINATOR® filter drier has a solid core that yields a fast adsorption rate and, because there is no loose desiccant, does not introduce unwanted particles into the refrigerant which is commonly found when using spun copper technology. It is also designed for superior flow capacity as well as low pressure drop to minimize operation and maintenance costs. The core type DML consists of 100% molecular sieve material for highest moisture capacity while the core type DCL contains 80% molecular sieve material and 20% activated alumina for high moisture capacity and acid adsorption respectively

The ELIMINATOR® 1.5 in3 filter drier works with all common refrigerants, including natural refrigerants such as hydrocarbons and subcritical CO2 (up to 46 bar).

The simple pull-off cap makes the new filter drier easy to mount. The black, high-quality, durable coating gives the filter drier an attractive look and feel while providing protection when exposed to harsh environments. Multiple configurations are available including connections for single or dual inlet ports. Others are available upon request.
