About the Dryers Industry
The plastic manufacturing industry is faced with various challenges that manufacturers have to deal with to ensure they produce high quality goods. Most plastic material appears dry but this is not always the case. Materials such as PET, nylon and polycarbonate tend to attract moisture from the air which can greatly affect the quality of a final product. Manufacturerswho attempt to process raw plastic material with moisture, find their products are adversely affected in terms of appearance and strength.
It should be taken into account that leaving plastic materials for too long in a dryer is also potentially disastrous. Too long residence time in a dryer can cause color pigments to shift potentially causing a product to darken. To take care of these issues, plastic manufacturers have options available to ensure raw plastic materials are in the optimum condition for processing. One of the most used processes is the use of low pressure dryers or vacuum dryers.
Vacuum dryers offer low drying times which reduces the risk of material degradation. These machines provide many revenue and process benefits when compared to conventional drying methods.
