The Ultimate Compact, Clean Desiccant Wheel Drying Solution

Conair’s MicroWheel dryer is the perfect solution for processes that don’t need the capacity of a large dryer and hopper, but still need the efficiency and reliability of Conair’s desiccant wheel drying technology.

As the smallest and most compact dryer of its type on the market today, Conair now offers this perfect option for applications requiring a small and efficient dryer/hopper combination. Designed with the medical industry in mind, this dryer features stainless construction, clean operation, and a compact footprint.

Application flexibility, less dust, energy-efficient

Designed for flexibility, the MicroWheel can be used with a large variety of materials, with a delivery air temperature range of 131 – 356°F {55 – 180° C}. The delivery air blower automatically adjusts airflow based on application throughput, which saves energy and makes drying more efficient. In addition to being more energy-efficient than compressed air and twin-tower dryers, the MicroWheel does not create the dust that twin-tower desiccant beads produce. This makes the MicroWheel perfect for medical and applications that require clean operation.

Easy setup with built-in material database

Changing from one mold or production setup to another is quick and easy. The MicroWheel has a built-in material database. Simply select the material type from the list, set your desired rate, and the dryer performs all the necessary calculations for optimum dryer settings. In addition to the up to 30 pre-set materials, user material settings can be saved as well.

Built-in intelligence to protect your material

All MicroWheel dryers now come programmed with Smart Mode, which protects your material and drying process. When activated, Smart Mode automatically adjusts the process air flow to protect resin from over drying, and to increase drying efficiency. This is accomplished by maintaining a constant delta temperature for the return air temperature. It’s like cruise control for your dryer.
