Brookville, Ohio, August 28, 2017 – Flow Dry Technology, an industry leader in adsorbent solutions, is pleased and proud to announce that its AD-1® Molecular Sieve Adsorbent has received approval from General Motors for use in all global GM mobile air-conditioning systems that utilize condenser/radiator/fan module (CRFM) technology to cool vehicle powertrains.

“We are honored to have received this approval and recognition from GM. We are delighted that our AD-1 Molecular Sieve Adsorbent is now the new ‘gold standard’ in desiccants for use in mobile air-conditioning applications,” said Rahul Deshmukh, Flow Dry President and CEO. “After significant product testing and with this approval, GM has validated that Flow Dry’s AD-1 desiccant can help thermal-system manufacturers and OEMs optimize system designs while minimizing cost, which is a huge win for both us and our end-user partners.”

Specifically, Flow Dry’s AD-1 desiccants satisfy all of the requirements of GMW 16846, which is GM’s performance standard relating to “Desiccant Use in Refrigerant Systems using HFC-134a and HFO-1234yf.”

The AD-1 Molecular Sieve Adsorbent was developed by Flow Dry to be a high-quality, high-performance, yet economical, desiccant that can be used for drying HFC-134a and other refrigerants. The features that set AD-1 desiccants apart from the competition include high water capacity; strong resistance to system vibration and attrition of molecular sieve beads; high bead crush strength; high density for improved adsorption rates; and chemical compatibility with HFC-134a and other refrigerants.
