A new line of telecommunications central office cable air dryers
introduced by Andrew Corporation, a global leader in communications
products and systems, features technology that helps wireline network
providers extend cable life and avoid costly service interruptions.
Andrew's Central Office Cable Air Dryers, including the industry's first
60,000 standard cubic feet per day (scfd) single compressor unit, use
patented membrane drying technology to create a consistent, precise
pressurized air supply that keeps underground twisted pair cables in
telecom networks free of moisture that otherwise would lead to corrosion
and loss of connection. The patented membrane technology produces
cleaner, dryer air in a single unit versus the need for two units in
Andrew is introducing the three new units November 16-17 at OSP Expo
2005 at the Fort Worth Convention Center, Fort Worth, Texas.
"Andrew's new cable air dryers represent a huge advance in the drying
techniques available to telecom wireline network providers," said John
DeSana, group president, Antenna and Cable Products, Andrew Corporation.
"These ultra-quiet units offer more capacity and require less
maintenance than anything now available for use from central offices."
