AMESBURY, MA-Eight Munters ICA dehumidification systems valued at $4.75 million were ordered by CB&I, an engineering procurement and construction contractor, for the upgrade of the turbine engine dry air capability at Arnold Air Force Base in Tullahoma, TN.
The Munters equipment will supply low dewpoint air for jet engine testing. The test cells operate at low temperatures and pressures to simulate high altitudes, needing dry air to prevent build up of ice on the equipment responsible for producing the low temperatures. The eight units will deliver low dewpoint air at variable air volumes between 20,000 and 40,000 cfm. The Munters ICA products are scheduled to ship from the Amesbury, MA, manufacturing facility in December 2009 and January 2010.
Munters ICA dehumidification system simplifies the complex task of integrating a desiccant dehumidifier with other air conditioning components. The ICA is customizable to multiple configurations and incorporates many advanced features including an innovative double wall construction with superior no-through metal design in either 2.5 or 4-inch wall thickness.
