Mobile Cart Dryers With Conveying Control

Mobile drying and conveying systems eliminate the need for machine-mounted hoppers by placing all components on a safe, convenient cart.
Set-up, pre-drying, clean-out and maintenance can all take place without tying up valuable process machine time, or climbing on the machine.
The dX system integrates an efficient Carousel Plus™ Dryer with a conveying blower, dust collector and direct-feed vacuum receiver to convey with dry air to the throat of a processing machine. The self-loading option adds an integral hopper loader which allows the dX to load itself. If you don’t need dry-air conveying, order a non-dry air conveying dX with a dryer and hopper, and add a self-contained vacuum loader.

Simple to use, advanced touchscreen control – two options

The DC-C control on the dX dryers makes controlling your mobile drying and conveying easier than ever. The 4-inch Plus, or 7-inch Premium touchscreen control has descriptive help screens for operators and features detailed trending screens, auto start capabilities, password protection and has Conair’s Drying Monitor capabilities built into the DC-C Premium control (requires the appropriate hardware).

Closed-loop drying/conveying

Each unit provides drying temperatures up to 375°F {191°C}, automatic desiccant regeneration and dewpoints of -40°F {-40°C}.

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.

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

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.
