Machine vs. Central Installation Configurations
In broad terms, you have two basic choices about where to place your dryers and drying hoppers.
- On or near processing machines
- Remote, central location away from the production floor
Your choice will be largely determined by the type of processing you do.
- Extrusion, blow molding and long-run injection molders may benefit by locating drying systems on or near processing machines
- Injection molding operations using multiple materials and frequently changing materials and molds, benefit from remote placement of drying equipment
