Wittmann Inc. of Torrington, Conn., rolled out its Drymax twin-bed desiccant dryers, now designated as “bioresin ready” — able to dry a full range of bioresins on the market today.
According to the company, several standard features make the Drymax line well-suited for the plant-based materials, especially their ability to maintain constant, low-temperature operation, down to 120° F, with no temperate spikes, and a constant low dew point.
Constant air flow optimizes drying times. A feature called Smart¼Regen monitors the drying proc¼ess of the desiccant beds, reducing the amount of energy needed to regenerate the desiccant.
In related news, Wittmann has developed a standardized rating method and a comprehensive testing program for each of its Drymax dryers.
