What is a cable dehydrator?

A cable dehydrator is a machine that generates air, dries it, stores the air and then distributes the air to copper cables.

Moisture in copper cables causes problems such as static, damaged cables, cross lines or even dropped calls. Slow internet speeds and generally unreliability can also be experienced.

Polar Air’s cable dehydrators were designed and are manufactured to pressurise copper cables with dry air in order to prevent moisture from entering the cables and causing the problems mentioned above.

The compressors generate the air which is cooled down through the cooling coil. The moisture separator then removes all large droplets of water and the finer moisture particles are removed by the air dryer. The dry air is then stored in the storage tank and distributed to the cables via the regulator ensuring that the cables are kept dry.
