Conventional dryer wisdom has been shaken up by some innovative new designs displayed at NPE. These developments will be covered in detail in the September issue, but here are the highlights:

Maguire’s Low Pressure Dryer uses vacuum to actively draw moisture from within the pellets to reduce drying time to 40 minutes and cut energy consumption by up to 75 percent.

A fluted desiccant media is used in Bry-Air’s dryers. Graydon Griesse says it gives greater surface area and improved air flow, so the overall size of the dryer is significantly reduced.

Compressed air dryers from Cactus can now dry up to 150 lb./hr.

A special absorptive medium removes moisture from compressed air in the NovaDrier from Novatec (see Canadian Plastics, June 2000, page 38).
