    Mechanical Drier

    For Centrifugal Drying of Rigid Plastics & Plastic Film

    The Mechanical Dryer is used in a washing system with pre-shredded or in a wet granulator system for surface drying of plastics such as film, PET bottle flake, etc. The input material enters the upper end of the dryer by a transport screw, cyclone separator or other material handling equipment. The inner rotor of the mechanical dryer transports the material flake from the in-feed side to the discharge side. The specific angular degree of the rotor flights determines the total dwell travel time of the material inside the dryer and the final residual moisture content of the discharged material. During the material transport inside the dryer the material is forced against the rotor and screen surface to achieve a product contact surface cleaning. The water and residual water is forced out through the screen cage which surrounds the mechanical dryer rotor.
