The RDX-P is the ideal dehumidifying wheel dryer to integrate with your central loading system or to handle multiple hoppers. It offers more features as standard equipment with a smaller footprint than comparable systems, giving you maximum performance in minimal space.
AEC’s desiccant wheel technology is specifically designed for the plastics industry and delivers optimal performance. Its unique, honeycomb design—molecular sieve desiccant, bonded and then baked onto proprietary paper—eliminates powder that can contaminate the system. Its large contact area effectively absorbs at high temperatures, drying resin in half the time while stabilizing dew points at a constant –40°F.
The RDX-P drying hopper is equipped with a programmable loader, which releases measured amounts of resin at specific intervals. Pellets are conveyed using warm, dry air and delivered for the next loading cycle on a just-in-time schedule. This keeps pellets at the optimum moisture level from the dryer to the molding machine, maximizing performance and minimizing part defects.
