8420 Series High Frequency Macrowave™ Dryer for Catalytic Converter and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Extrusions
The Macrowave™ 8420 Series Drying Systems Uniformly Dry Ceramic Honeycomb Extrusions for Catalytic Converter and Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) in Minutes
without Discoloration or Surface Cracking
- PRODUCTS ARE DRIED QUICKLY: The RF heating method takes minutes, not hours, to thoroughly dry extruded materials.
- REDUCES SURFACE CRACKING: Surface cracks caused by the stresses of uneven product shrinkage during the drying process are eliminated.
- PRECISE MOISTURE CONTROL: Selectively heats where the moisture content is the highest producing a uniformly dry product throughout.
- SMALL FOOTPRINT: Each 100 kW module removes 220 lbs. (100kg) of water per hour in a line length of only 18 feet (5.5 meters).
- ENERGY SAVINGS: Macrowave™ RF drying saves energy over conventional drying systems.
Model 8420 420kW Ceramics Drying System
- The low operating voltage of the 40 MHz Macrowave system increases the variety of products which can be dried by this method.
- A counter-flow stream of moist air retards premature surface drying of product.
- Self-regulating power dries one part or a continuous stream of parts without operator intervention.
- Product size changeovers require only a few minutes to select new control panel settings.
- PLC controls suitable for local and remote operation include a fault condition indicator system.
- Meets OSHA and FCC standards.
