Energy-efficient drying system

Article-Energy-efficient drying system

The co. introduces the PowerDry™ complete packaged drying system in response to widespread efforts to lower energy costs through reduced compressed-air usage. The system generates high velocity airflows for effective debris and moisture removal. Its washdown-capable design is suited for food, beverage and packaging operations, such as container drying prior to date coding, sealing, labeling, packaging, etc. The drying system incorporates a high-performance centrifugal blower that develops maximum air flow and pressure from a small, 3-HP motor. An FDA compliant hose carries the airflow to a unique 6-nozzle air tube that delivers successive hits of high impact air. A fully adjustable, stainless-steel mounting arm holds the air tube securely in place. Field tests showed the drying system returned an average 80-plus percent savings in energy costs, while providing comparable or improved drying in every application.
