BD210WLP Series
Dehydrator for broadcast applications

Rev : 02 | Rev date : 19 Apr 2022


The BD210WLP series dehydrators are used for pressurisation of broadcast antennas and transmission lines. The dehydrator removes the moisture from damp ambient air to deliver a reliable, constant, on-demand source of dry, pressurised air.
The inherent reliability, compact size and remote real-time data capabilities make the BD210WLP series dehydrators an ideal choice for pressurisation of small or unattended broadcast sites, for example translator sites, SFN gap fillers or STL systems.

The BD210WLP Series dehydrators employ a fully digital operating platform offering the most accurate readings of operating variables, either from the front panel or by a remote connection.


  • Air Delivery up to 200 SCFD
  • Remote Real-time Data and Alarm Reset Capabilities
  • SNMP Communication Compatible
  • Digital Display of all Operating Parameters
  • Compact & Lightweight
  • Ultra Quiet Swing-Piston Compressor
  • Versatile Mounting & Installation Options
  • Operating pressure can be changed by a simple adjustment at the dehydrator
  • Easy Slide Rail Mounting Kit Included (not with P210WLP-V)
  • Vertical Wall Mount Bracket Included with P210WLP-V ONLY
