WEBINAR DESCRIPTION:

The key to drying PET efficiently is to minimize heat and airflow while meeting moisture and IV requirements...automatically.

Processors are not inclined to put an operational dryer on the trash heap in order to get a new, energy-efficient model. On the other hand, when a new line is being added, the whole drying system has to be reviewed - from the system layout to the dryer including the usefulness of the control and options like gas-fired process heaters. Maximizing energy savings makes good sense in the long term as well as the short term because the initial cost of an energy efficient drying system can often be greatly reduced through energy credits or rebates from federal, state or local power companies.

Primary Topics (what the registrant will learn):

  • The economics of maintaining process stability
  • How system design affects energy usage
  • How to minimize process and regeneration energy
  • The role of gas-fired heaters to reduce energy usage
  • The advantage of controls with trending capabilities
  • When infrared drying makes sense
  • The value of an energy audit
