The VBD dryer will be on display at Interplas
Summit Systems will exhibit a new material dryer from Maguire at Interplas that it says can achieve faster and more efficient drying.
The new VBD Dryer is the result of Maguire having worked on its existing vacuum dryer principle and making it a lot more efficient.
Summit says recent production scale demonstrations have reportedly shown that the dryer can achieve the required quality of dried material in 35 minutes from cold start-up.
“Using these dryers it is possible to dry from sample batches to production of up to 450kg of polymer in a third of the time as traditional desiccant dryers and uses less than hal”f the energy,” explained Mike Jordan, Managing Director at Summit Systems. Fast drying means no material degradation and revolutionises production planning.”
The demand for this new dryer across the world means Summit Systems will only show one model at Interplas, whilst Maguire “ramps up” production.
Alongside the new dryer, Summit will be introducing two new ranges of technically advanced granulators designed for processors looking to address the in-house reclamation of scrap.
