Hot air dryer
LUXOR HD hot air dryers offer the most effective way of conditioning moderately hygroscopic plastic granules for processing and removal of surface moisture. Pre-heating of raw materials stabilises the production parameters and reduces processing energy costs.
motan‘s fully insulated LUXOR HD hot air dryers cover a performance range from 7 to 1100 kg per hour. The dryers can either be mounted directly on the throat of the processing machine (up to 150l) or on a support frame beside the machine.
Heating raw material in a hot air dryer is up to 38% more efficient than when material is heated up in a processing machine. LUXOR HD dryers warm up the plastic granules efficiently and with low energy consumption. Surface moisture is removed reliably. This minimises rejects and guarantees a constantly high product quality.
World-wide, many plastic processors rely on motan’s sturdy and efficient products. The LUXOR HD dryers are built to the same high engineering and design standards which have established motan‘s reputation for the industry’s most robust and reliable equipment.
LUXOR HD dryers, like all motan products, carry CE certification.
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 motan drying bins are determined by calculation and practical tests, guaranteeing correctly dried material is delivered to your processing machine.
The larger drying bins from 250 to 2400 litres are equipped with especially large cleanout doors fitted with a sight glass and easy-to-open quick release handles. They fit the shape of the bin in order to optimise material flow and simplify cleaning. In addition, they have a split hinged lid for easy access from above.
All LUXOR HD drying bins are made of stainless steel. The larger bins are mounted on solid frames and all have a control box mounted at the front of the bin for optimum accessibility.
Constant and stable conditions in the entire drying bin are an essential prerequisite. Therefore, the complete drying bin right down to the material discharge is heat insulated, saving you energy.
The cleverly designed air diffusers provide uniform distribution of the dry air ensuring that even material at the material bin outlet is kept dry and at a constant temperature.
All small LUXOR HD dryers have a slide gates fitted as standard. For the bigger LUXOR hot air dryers, a greater variety of accessories (like suction boxes and slide gates for discharging material) are available
Few moving parts, no desiccant material. LUXOR HD will deliver the reliable performance you need.
All models are equipped with thermostat and low-air-flow safety switch to prevent overheating of material. The hinged lid of the drying bin provides easy access and has a flange for fitting a METRO material loader for automatic material conveying.
The microprocessor-controlled temperature regulator is easy to use and displays process and set values and has an alarm indication. The self-optimising temperature controller PID reliably keeps the drying temperature in the tolerance range of ±1°C.
