Non-compressed Air Blowoff Boosts Drying

Blowoff before or in addition to condensation drying is used where items have a particularly complex geometry or cycle times are short. Purpose designed blowoff nozzles are integrated in the dryer to dry items such as coated metal parts at cycle times of 10 min and over, while coated plastics processed at extremely short cycle times are normally subjected to blowoff in a separate station and then moved into the dryer for stain-free finish drying. Special fans provide the perfect air knife.

Drying and Cooling after Sterilisation

A renowned pharmaceutical company relies, once again, on Harter's drying technology. An AIRGENEX®med system was installed in a new production facility for dialysis solutions. The system features two drying-cooling tunnels downstream the existing sterilisers. In these tunnels, the 1000 ml polyethylene containers leaving the steriliser are first dried externally, and the solution inside cooled subsequently.

Reliable Drying of Stand-Up Pouches

A pet food manufacturer used air blowing techniques to dry his pasteurized stand-up pouches. These techniques failed to produce the required results which posed a problem for subsequent secondary packaging. A new processing facility had an Airgenex® condensation drying system installed which meets the operator's residual humidity requirement of less than 150 mg of water per pouch. The 140 mm long, 93 mm wide, 15 mm thick stand-up pouches contain about 100 grams of pet food. The fully automatic, robot controlled facility has a throughput of 700 pouches per minute.

Gentle Drying of Cannabis Buds

A Swiss company invested in a drying system for their precious cannabis buds. The cannabis plants they grow are either sold or processed to extract active substances. This is an issue that will get up speed in Germany, too, because the prescription use of cannabis products for medical purposes has been legalized as of March 2017.

Fast Drying before Powder Coating

Application of a special adhesion enhancing aqueous solution with subsequent high-efficiency condensation drying – this is the pretreatment recently introduced by a global market leader in sporting goods for their plastic injection mouldings. The plastic parts in question have various sizes and show undercuts and bottom holes. They were previously subjected to an alcohol-based process. The successful change to the new compact system including an immersion bath and a drying station required some engineering ingenuity.

Reliable Drying of Plastic Parts

Reduction in the number of drying stations, temperatures between 50 °C and 75 °C, combined air blowing and drying, reliable drying within the cycle time or earlier, efficient drying using heat pump technology, stain-free drying, product specific drying solutions – all such wishes may quickly become reality if „heat pump based condensation drying“ is used. Want to know how a successful plastic plating company implemented this system?
