Energy-efficient auxiliary dryer to debut at Fakuma 2015


A large energy-efficient auxiliary dryer will debut at the upcoming Fakuma 2015 show from Protec. The SOMOS T140 eco dryer reportedly enables higher material throughput to the SOMOS T/TF eco series of mobile dry air dryers.

Offering hopper volume of 400 l and dry air throughput of 140 m³/h, it is a distinct step up from the five previously available auxiliary dryers with effective volumes ranging from 30 l to 300 l, which is also reflected in the updated design. The new dryer also features an updated touchscreen controller which offers numerous drying parameters tailored to the specific material as well as versatile documentation functions.

Like all SOMOS auxiliary dryers, the new T140 eco consists of a dry air generator and an insulated stainless steel drying hopper. To minimize energy consumption, the dryer is equipped with proprietary energy-saving technology.
