Industrial

For a fast and efficient processing of virgin and recycled materials in the processing industry Process Technologies offer the DRY SERIES microwave ovens.

DRY SERIES are microwave technology solutions designed for industrial product drying. They dry voluminous materials in continuous, gradual and controlled way in minimum time.

As such it can be possible to reduce industrial product drying energy costs and process time by up to 75%.

Applications
The DRY Series is appropriate especially for drying:
• Chips : dried from 30% down to 8% (moisture content), 1000 kg/h (quantity)
• Flakes : from 0.35% to < 0.01% (moisture content), • Gums : from 55% to <1% (moisture content), in less than 15 min (time) (latex)
• Granules : from 8-12% to 0.5% or even 0.01% (moisture content), 1 kW/litre liquid (capacity), drying by means of nitrogen is optional (PC, PA)
• Slurry : from 60% to 25% – by means of filter drying – to 1% (moisture content), typically in less than 15 min (time), +/- 1 kW/litre liquid (capacity) (ceramics/polymer)
