You don’t have to decipher cryptic codes to figure out how well your dryer is operation because all messages are spelled out in clear English. Other standard features include 3-phase detection and alarm, dew point analyzer and alarm, RED/Green Alarm light and Intelligent Regeneration for energy savinge. In addition, the PLUS model with the 7" high resolution color touch screen includes OverDry Protection  (for nylons) and photo-assisted maintenance and trouble-shooting. These highly efficient portable Dry/Convey models are available with 25, 50, 75, 100,150, 200 & 300 lb./hr. throughput capacities to suit all of your portable drying needs.

Intelligent Regeneration

Monitors the regeneration process and makes changes, automatically, to minimize the energy used to no more than that required to remove the moisture from the desiccant wheel.
