Wittmann Inc. has created a testing program to establish energy ratings for each of its Drymax twin-bed desiccant dryers. The auxiliary equipment maker also has designated the Drymax line ready for bioresin.
After years of research, Wittmann said it has developed a standardized rating method for dryers, based on test conditions that give repeatable results for the actual amount of energy consumed.
Wittmann defines the actual energy rating as the basic energy consumption per mass flow of air.
Once tested, every dryer model will be labeled with an energy sticker that shows the measured test results in terms of kilowatt hour per unit weight of dry air.
The Drymax line's bioresin readiness highlights its ability to maintain constant, low temperature operation with no temperature spikes, and a constant low dew point, the company said.
Wittmann is based in Torrington, Conn.
