The machine is used to dry the textile products, such as loose fibres, hanks and fabrics. It is composed of a modular metal frame, upholstered with insulated panels having high insulation efficiency. Its characteristics allows a remarkable energy saving in terms of heat dispersion. Inside the frame, the material to be dried is placed onto a conveyor belt. The conveyor belt is composed of a series of perforated stainless steel slats, connected to two lateral chains. A motor gearbox driven by Inverter controls the conveyor belt rotation. A fan blows a continuous airflow on the material to be dried, through a series of steel channels. The airflow is heated by means of batteries, which may be powered by oil or steam. The temperature inside the Dryer is constant thanks to a thermal regulator connected to a pneumatic valve, which automatically controls the steam or oil flow inside the heating batteries. The hot airflow passing through the material is collected and used again in circle. This characteristic allows a remarkable energy saving. An Inverter controls the fan that regulates the airflow. The combination of the airflow speed with the conveyor belt speed determines the machine production. A fan sucks the exhausted air produced during the drying process and blows it outside the Dryer.
The length of the machine may vary according to the number of drying units. The length of each unit is 3200 mm.
