Battenfeld Gloucester Introduces its New Machine Direction Orienter (MDO)

Machine-direction orientation provides enhancements to polyethylene film including downgauging and the ability to create specialty films. Rather than being wound after extrusion, film is fed into the MDO unit, preheated, and run through drawing rolls for orientation. This process increases the film to four or five times its original length.

Drierite Desiccant Bags

DRIERITE Desiccant bags are filled with DRIERITE (anhydrous calcium sulfate), the highly effective and completely safe drying agent. DRIERITE will reduce the humidity in a sealed container to a -100 F dewpoint which is nearly 0% R.H. at ambient temperatures. DRIERITE also performs well at elevated temperatures and will not release absorbed moisture. Packages that experience temperature changes during shipping and storage are best protected by including a DRIERITE desiccant bag.
