Imagine a resin dryer that provides a consistent low dewpoint of -40F without the use of desiccants and with no moving parts. That’s what Novatec, Baltimore, Md., has come up with in its new, patent pending NovaDrier.

There’s no process motor, regeneration motor or regeneration heater. There are no valves and no cooling coils on high temperature applications. The only maintenance requirement is to change filters every six months.

“I’ve been selling dryers since 1966 and haven’t seen an improvement to dryer technology this significant in that time,” says John W. Doub, Jr., executive vice-president of Novatec.

The NovaDrier works by passing compressed air through a special absorptive medium. This absorptive medium was first used by the US Navy to dry moisture from air lines in submarines and boats.

The new dryer operates with any compressed air source–refrigerated or dessicated air is not required. It dries all types of resin, and is available in models to dry 5 to 120 lbs./hr.
