3.2.6 Vacuum Drying

What is vacuum
Vacuum drying is:
drying?
"The use of a vacuum pump to vaporize (gasify) the moisture (liquid) inside the pipes and expel
it leaving the pipes completely dry inside."
At 1 atm (760 mmHg) the boiling point (evaporating temperature) of water is 100°C but if a
vacuum is created inside the pipes using a vacuum pump then the boiling point is rapidly
reduced as the degree of the vacuum is increased. If the boiling point is reduced to a level
below that of the ambient temperature then the moisture in the pipes will evaporate.
<Example>
When outside temperature is 7.2°C
As shown in the table on the right, the degree
of vacuum must be lowered below –752mmHg.
The evacuation of air conditioner piping provides the following effects.
1. Vacuum drying
2. Removes air and nitrogen (used in air-tightness test) from the inside of pipes.
Therefore, it is necessary to ensure that the both purposes have been achieved in the vacuum
drying operation.
