Company Profile

Since 1974 Dri-Air has been the industry leader in proven desiccant dryer technology, offering the highest quality at competitive pricing.

Desiccant Dryers Still the Gold Standard

Patented, high performance dryer, hopper and optional loading systems.

Desiccant Dryers Still the Gold Standard

1 dryer, 2 hoppers, and 3 reasons why the H-PDII systems provide maximum flexibility: * Drying and processing from one hopper while pre-drying in the other; on-the-fly material changes eliminates downtime. * Co-injection and/or co-extrusion processes; run two materials at two different temperatures simultaneously. * Reduce valuable floor space; eliminate the need for a second dryer by positioning the portable system between two presses/extruders.

Desiccant Dryers Still the Gold Standard

Multiple Hoppers with One Dryer * One dryer connects to multiple hoppers for a centralized drying system. * Dry different materials at each hopper as each has its own booster heater for temperature control. * Processors making one or two materials changes daily can justify the cost of a hopper bank in months.

As Seen In Plastics Technology

The Primary Importance of Secondary Equipment
Resin drying, resin conveying and process heating and cooling are as vital to the injection molding process as the press and tool, and they get their due at Molding 2017.

Precision Molding Without a QC Department?
At Prism Plastics, quality is baked into every step of the process. The result: 1 billion parts per year with a defect rate less than 1 ppm.

FEEDING: Mini Compressed-Air Loader
Feeds primary machinery at rates to 20 lb/hr.

DRYING: Compressed-Air Micro Dryers
Said to be suited for smaller extrusion, micro molding, and AM applications.

Auxiliaries AT NPE: New Controls Link Auxiliaries
Industry 4.0—the internet of things—is bringing a new level of connectivity to auxiliary equipment. Here’s a rundown of developments there, along with other news in auxiliaries from the show.

AUXILIARIES AT NPE: More Control, Flexibility, And Energy Efficiency
These are key trends in the many kinds of auxiliary equipment displayed at this month’s show. You’ll also see equipment designed to be virtually ‘foolproof.’

DRYING: New Tower Design Increases Dryer Efficiency
Novel parabolic tower design, unique heater configuration, and optimized airflow are said to maximize efficiency.

DRYING: Hopper Bank Includes Central Conveying to Multiple Machines
Quick-change manifolds let users switch hoppers or connect multiple machines to one hopper.

NPE News Wrap-up: Resin Dryers
At least 16 companies introduced new dryers at the big show in Chicago. The new models span a range of drying technologies, but most sport features that save space and cost and make the dryers simpler and more reliable.

Metronet light bus conveying controller

Materials Handling: New Equipment Emphasizes Efficiency & Value
Visitors to the recent NPE 2009 show in Chicago were looking for materials handling equipment that could do more than dry, blend, or convey resins. It had to do those things while saving energy, providing faster and easier maintenance, speeding product changeovers, reducing labor cost, minimizing waste, and providing better value for money. The new products cited below addressed those needs and more.

Unique all-servo robot from Sytrama of Italy

Servo Robots Show More Speed, Muscle & Brains
The recent NPE 2009 show in Chicago saw the debut of dozens of new and enhanced robots for injection molding. The vast majority of the new models were all-servo types, though some economized by mixing servo and pneumatic axes. These new robots emphasized higher speeds, heavier payload capacity, longer reach, and more intelligent controllers that make programming and troubleshooting easier than ever. Telescoping arms and dual arms were very common among the new entries, as well.

Energy Management A Theme at NPE
Addressing the need for tighter cost control, several firms will offer new devices for energy monitoring.
