Conair has added a unique traction-belt drive system that improves the performance of its small to mid-size Carousel Plus dryers (W15 to W400), and will soon be incorporating the feature into larger units in the line.
The system, which matches a cleated belt with a grooved traction band on the desiccant wheel that is the heart of the Carousel Plus dryers, is easier to use and more reliable than other flat-belt or chain-drive systems available.
The Carousel Plus dryers use cost-effective desiccant-wheel technology. The dryers are also more compact than other dryers, with a footprint 40 to 60 per cent smaller, depending upon the model size; and weigh up to 85 per cent less, also.
The standard microprocessor control system ensures rock-steady temperatures and dew point levels, which are critical to processing many of the moisture and temperature sensitive polymers in common use today. The operator selects a particular dew point value and locks it into the control, which then adjusts various functions to hold that dew point precisely.
