Touchscreen Technology in a Compact Wheel Dryer

Now with a 4-inch or 7-inch DC-C touchscreen control, Conair’s smallest Carousel Plus™ Dryers just got smarter! Dubbed the Carousel Plus, everything about this dryer is improved to help you stay profitable in a dramatically more competitive world market. The product improvements are an extension of the legacy of the original, workhorse Carousel desiccant dryers.

Purchase this dryer and you will find that you have more control over drying dewpoint and temperature than ever before, in a package that is simpler, smaller, lighter, more energy efficient, easier to use and maintain than any other dryer on the market today.

Advanced touchscreen controls

The 4-inch Plus, or 7-inch Premium DC-C control features trending, auto-start, password protection, predictive maintenance and an energy usage meter.

Reduced energy costs

The desiccant wheel heats and cools more easily than other drying technology saving you up to 50% on your energy bill. Fewer parts, lighter structural mass, less to heat, no cooling water needed therefore less wasted energy. Easily view power consumption on the DC-C control’s “Energy Usage Meter”.

Maximum uptime, maximum reliability, smaller footprint

With significantly reduced part count, easy access and less wear you can expect many years of trouble-free operation. The weight of the desiccant assembly has been reduced by 70%, the part count reduced by 90%. There are no more indexing bed plates, no more cumbersome 4-way valves and no more messy desiccant beads. Shift-after-shift this dryer will deliver the performance you need to stay up and running.

DC-C Control Features

  • 4-inch color touchscreen
  • Trending (dewpoint, temperature, heater on-time)
  • Auto Start/Stop
  • Password protected
  • Energy usage meter
  • Dewpoint monitor and control
  • Visual alarm
  • Air-to-air heat exchange
  • Predictive maintenance

Audible and visual alarm

A combination of a blinking red alarm light and a horn alert the operator to any shut down alarm.

Temperature setback

Automatically reduces the drying temperature to a lower standby mode when the machine throughput is reduced or stopped.

Dewpoint monitor & Dewpoint control

Monitor the performance of the dryer with a digital dewpoint readout of the drying air. Dewpoint control allows the dryer to maintain an operator-selected dewpoint level. This feature helps prevent overdrying of moisture sensitive materials such as Nylon.

Air-to-air heat exchange

Air-to-air aftercooler means no cooling water hook-up is required for operation. An aftercooler is required to reduce the temperature of the return air from the hopper, which improves the efficiency of the desiccant. The new air-to-air cooler achieves drying efficiency at temperatures up to 375°F {190.5°C}, while saving water and simplifying installation.


Allows the dryer to be networked to industrial control systems. When a dryer is connected to a network the controller on the network may read actual temperatures, change setpoints, read dryer status, and process and display this information at a central location. Ethernet communications are available on the DC-C Premium control.
