When manufacturing large injection molded parts as well as some extrusion applications, the plastics material processor is frequently required to handle very large material throughput rates. In many cases, these materials must be predried. For such applications, Motan has developed the large-scale dryers LUXOR 1800 and 2400. With a dry air quantity of 1060 and 1412 cfm (1800 and 2400 m³h), the maximum performance of the range has nearly doubled. In the past, the LUXOR 1200, designed for a material throughput of 2200 lbs/h (1000 kg/h), was the largest dryer offered. Now 4400 lbs/h (2000 kg/h) is possible with the new LUXOR 2400. These new dryers strengthen Motan’s position in supplying complete materials handling packages to the plastics processing industry in general and to the automotive industry in particular. With the development of these dryers, Motan responded to the requirements of the market for higher throughputs. Reliability, operational safety, interprocess communication, energy savings and lower investment costs were the key factors to design the new LUXOR 1800 and 2400 dryers. To a large extent, the technology of the large-scale dryers is based on existing and proven standard parts. Heat recovery systems in the process and regeneration circuit, load-dependent regeneration and other elements of the ETA-technology (Motan patent), proved material protection and material drying with the lowest possible energy use. With the color touch-screen panel all process parameters can be entered and stored in the form of recipes. The entire drying and conveying system can also be operated from this panel. Intercommunication with controls of the Motan CONROLnet family and PCs is achieved through the IPC based LUXORnet control of the dry air generator and a standard Ethernet interface. Therefore, process parameters which are essential for quality assurance can be documented.
