Touchscreen Technology in a Compact Wheel Dryer

Conair Carousel Plus™ dehumidifying dryers guarantee moisture removal from resins, regardless of moisture content. You can be assured your molded or extruded products will be unaffected by moisture content that can jeopardize their quality.
Equipped with highly efficient desiccant wheels, long-life tube heaters and powerful blowers, Conair D Series Dryers can be coupled with a single hopper for efficient resin drying up to 400 lbs/hr {181.4 kg/hr} or more. Or they can be connected to multiple hoppers, each equipped with their own heat source for efficient delivery of dry air in a central drying station configuration.
These D Series Dryers, models 150 through 400 offer a choice of full-color, high-resolution touchscreen controls, for the simplest, yet most sophisticated control over the drying of your valuable resin.

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.

Feature Descriptions

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