Maguire Products has is to reveal a rebrand of its vacuum resin dryers at the upcoming K Show 2019.
The K fair will be held 16-23 October at Messe Dusseldorf.
The Aston, Pennsylvania-based company will relaunch its resin dryers under the Ultra brand, which is intended to highlight the reduced energy consumption of the units.
According to the company, the ‘world’s only vacuum resin dryer designed for plastics processors’ offers proven capability that will pay for itself through the ‘substantial savings’ in energy costs.
In a statement, Maguire noted: “With costs so low, it’s almost free.”
Ultra low-energy dryers are based on technology introduced by Maguire in 2013 under the VBD brand.
Speaking about the units, Frank Kavanagh commented: “While the energy needed to heat polymer to its required temperature is roughly the same for both vacuum and desiccant dryers, we now know that the Ultra low energy dryer uses much less energy in the next stage, when the heated resin is actually dried.”
Kavanagh went on to highlight a material drying example for a process running 100kg (220lbs) per hour, for 6,000 operational hours per year.
While an average desiccant dryer might run at 60W per pound of material, the Ultra system is said use just 19W per pound.
Further information about the Ultra system will be available from Maguire. The company will be located in Hall 10, stand A26.
