A Message from Dri-Air Industries, Inc.

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.
