Dry air dryer
LUXOR CA S
Injection moulders for making very small parts are faced with the unique challenge of being able to dry just the right amount of material for their process. Operating in extremely critical production conditions, these smaller throughputs can present considerable problems. It is important to scale the drying to the size of the moulding machine.
The LUXOR CA S 0.75 to 5 range of compressed air micro dryers is specifically designed for small material throughputs. The range comprises of a modular line of correctly sized drying equipment to help moulders meet the small tolerances without waste or contamination.
These small dryers take factory supplied compressed air which is expanded to atmospheric pressure. This produces dry process air with a very low dew-point which is then heated to the required drying temperature. No desiccant is required
The LUXOR CA S micro dryers take factory supplied compressed air which is expanded to atmospheric pressure. This produces dry process air with a very low dew-point which is then heated to the required drying temperature.
No desiccant is required, making the dryer prefect for clean room conditions.
LUXOR CA S will deliver the reliable performance you need.
Due to the wide temperature range (30 - 180°C), the LUXOR CA S micro dryers can be used for many different materials.
A pre-filter cleans the compressed air. This prevents contamination of high-quality materials and provides optimum drying conditions.
The LUXOR CA S micro dryers have been specially designed for small material throughputs, with drying bin volumes ranging from 0.75 litres to 5 litres.
A modular set of correctly sized drying equipment helping you to meet the small tolerances without waste or contamination.
The complete drying bin body is made from a single piece of special glass. This is ideal for contamination critical process applications.
An additional benefit of the all glass construction is that it allows you to always see the actual amount of material in the bin.
Constant and stable conditions in the entire drying hopper are an essential prerequisite. Therefore, the complete drying hopper right down to the material discharge is heat insulated because of a double glass wall construction, saving you energy.
The cleverly designed air diffuser provides uniform distribution of the dry air ensuring that even material at the material bin outlet is kept dry and at a constant temperature.
All models are equipped with thermostat and low-air-flow safety switch to prevent overheating of material.
The swivel-opening lid of the drying bin provides easy access and has a flange for fitting a METRO VL compressed air loader for automatic material conveying.
The ratio between the height and diameter of a drying bin is critical to how a material flows through the bin. Incorrect mass flow can lead to “dead” corners where the material is over dried or the material will flow too quickly through the middle of the bin resulting in under dried material.
The optimum dimensions of the cylindrical drying bins are determined by calculation and practical tests, guaranteeing correctly dried material is delivered to your processing machine.
You have all the functionality you need and not be burdened by an overly complicated control.
The drying bin can be filled reliably and automatically with the METRO VL compressed air venturi loader. It is virtually maintenance free and silent.
