10BF is the most effective deliquescent desiccant from Van Air Systems. Formulated primarily for the dehydration of natural gas and for use in Van Air Systems Pipeline Dryers, 10BF is a dense hygroscopic tablet that absorbs water vapor. The surface of the desiccant tablet dissolves slowly, forming a brine solution which drops from the surface. The tablet continuously dissolve, or deliquesces, until the desiccant is fully consumed.

Van Air Systems deliquescent desiccants, including 10BF, are non-toxic and fully water soluble.

In a properly sized Pipeline Dryer, 10BF will establish a relative humidity of 13%, which equates to a dew point depression of approximately 50-60°F.
