'X' marks the spot for moisture control

AUXILIARIES The three models of the XD600 material dryer family provide airflow rates from 250-2500 m3/hr. A key feature of these units is their reduced energy consumption. For example, a 2500 m3/hr unit can save up to €36,000/yr for a processor compared to older competitive dryers, says the manufacturer. Coupling the X PET-PRO special hopper featuring Crossed Thermal Exchanger (CTX) for the treatment of highly hygroscopic engineering resins with the XD600 series, PET processors are also able to save up to 60% on the energy costs normally needed for drying. For polycarbonate applications the company offers the OX dryer that is equipped with hopper and suction unit plus a touchscreen control system to provide constant monitoring of feeding and material demand. According to the manufacturer, its reduced size means processors save up to 25% of the shopfloor space compared to units from competitive suppliers.
