Vacuum dryer

PF_Maguire_LPDdryer.jpgThe LPD-1000 vacuum dryer is said to require 1¼6 of the time and as little as 20 percent of the energy needed by conventional hot-air/desiccant dryers to dry resin. The system handles hourly throughputs in the 200- to 1000-lb range, and can be used beside the press, mezzanine-mounted above the processing machine, or as a central unit with take-away ports for multiple processing lines. Instead of flowing hot, dry air over the pellets to draw moisture out, the dryer uses vacuum to reduce the boiling point of water, turn the moisture into water vapor, and pull the water vapor from within the pellets. The dryer heats and vacuum-dries simultaneously in separate stations.
