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
