Our products

Product category: Driers for bulk materials

Pellet Dryer System

The Pellet Drying Process takes place in four stages:

Agglomerate removal prevents agglomerates greater than 1/2″ (12.7 mm) from entering the SpinAway Dryer and damaging the rotor blades and screens.
Dewatering removes 90% to 95% of the water which reduces dryer load and increases input rates
SpinAway Dryer removes surface moisture from pellets or recycled plastics.
Forced Air removes water vapor as dry air counter-flows through the pellets as they pass through the top half of the dryer.

Spinaway Dryer

The Stainless Steel SpinAway Dryer separates pellitized products from water slurries in a continuous operation. Products can be discharged from the SpinAway dry enough to go directly to packaging or storage with surface moisture as low as 0.05%.

Final dewatering is accomplished by spinning off the moisture through the centrifugal action of the vertical rotor located in the center of the dryer. The rotor consists of impeller blades extending from the bottom to the top of the SpinAway. As the water is removed, pellets are carried to the top by the rotating blades. The discharge is located at the top.

Pressurized Spinaway Dryer

The Stainless Steel Pressurized SpinAway Dryer is designed for special products such as nylon pellets. The final dewatering is accomplished by spinning off the moisture through the centrifugal action of the rotor. The slurry enters the bottom of the SpinAway. As the water is spun off, pellets are carried to the top by the rotating blades. The discharge is located at the top.

The internal dryer components include purged labyrinth shafts seals, electro – polished screens and special bearing assemblies. A pellet-free rotor with stub shafts are available in our largest models. The Vessels are designed with manways to provide an easy access to service the internal screens. All internal welds, edges, and sharp corners are ground to an 80 grit finish.

The vessels are designed and built to ASME code VIII, Div. 1. Standards are code stamped and designed for pressures up to 45 psi and 350°F.

Micro 2001 Dryer

The Micro 2001 Dryer presents a unique concept in the art of drying plastic pellets. The main features is the ability to tilt the dryer housing back to facilitate the cleaning of the rotor and screen cartridge between production runs. Another design feature is the elimination of the lower bearing and seals to reduce maintenance.

The Carter Day Micro 2001 Dryer is designed for underwater, watering ring and strand pelletizing systems, with a capacity range of 50 to 200 lbs/hr (20 to 900 kg/hr) and water rates up to 80 GPM (18m3/hr).
