Desiccant Dryers Still the Gold Standard

HPD Series - Single Hopper Portable Dryer for Quick Changes

HPD Series - Single Hopper Portable Dryer for Quick Changes

Patented, high performance dryer, hopper and optional loading systems. DRI-AIR’s PD Series eliminates press/extruder mounted drying hoppers for fast, safe material changes.


PDII Series - Dual Hopper Dryer for Two Shot/Color Molding

PDII Series - Dual Hopper Dryer for Two Shot/Color Molding

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.


Multiple Hopper Bank & Dryer for Off-Line Drying

Multiple Hopper Bank & Dryer for Off-Line Drying

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • New Source of Robots

    All-servo, three-axis traversing robots from Sytrama in Italy are newly available in the Americas from Dri-Air Industries, Inc., E.

  • Plastic-Wrapped Hopper Cuts Dryer Energy Use

    A new energy-efficient drying hopper from Dri-Air Industries Inc., East Windsor, Conn., features a non-conductive plastic outer cover that reportedly provides some heat insulation.

  • HOW TO COMPARE DRYERS? A Complex Challenge With No Simple Answers

    Is one type of resin dryer faster or more energy-efficient than another? That question prompts competing claims from suppliers—but very little concrete data. When one vendor performed controlled tests to get some answers, its results, published here for the first time, prompted further debate about the difficulties of making valid comparisons and the many complex issues involved in dryer selection.

  • Compressed-air membrane dryers are now available in a multi-hopper bank so that different materials can be dried at different temperatures.

  • A multiple-hopper drying system is said to be the first compressed-air unit that can simultaneously dry different materials at different temperatures.

  • NPE 2006 News Wrap-Up: Materials Handling: A Host of Refinements and Updates

    NPE 2006 held no revolutionary changes in dryers, blenders, feeders, loaders, or conveying controls, but widely adopted improvements make the newest models easier to use and maintain—and easier on the budget, too.

  • What to See at NPE 2006: Materials and Parts Handling

    Dryers, feeders, blenders, loaders, metal detectors, level sensors, mechanical and pneumatic conveyors, silos, bins, pumps, filters, valves, box fillers, bag dumpers, and materials-handling control systems constitute one of the biggest categories of products on display at NPE.
