Paxton PowerDry Replaces Compressed Air Blow-Offs
Product Announcement from ITW Air Management
Complete Packaged Drying System Offers Energy Savings
Paxton Products has introduced the PowerDryTM system in response to widespread efforts to lower energy costs through reduced compressed air usage. The affordable system was designed as an easy-to-install replacement for plastic comb or fan nozzles, air jets, disk nozzles, drilled pipe, and other common pneumatic blow-off devices. The versatile system generates high velocity airflows for effective debris and moisture removal. Its washdown-capable design is perfectly suited for food, beverage and packaging operations, such as container drying prior to date coding, sealing, labeling, packaging, etc.
As a blower-driven alternative to compressed air, the patent pending PowerDryTM system eliminates potential contamination from oils and scale in the compressed air supply.
The compact PowerDryTM system incorporates a high performance Paxton centrifugal blower that develops maximum air flow and pressure from a small, 3HP motor. An FDA compliant hose carries the airflow to a unique 6-nozzle air tube that delivers successive hits of high impact air. A fully adjustable, stainless steel, mounting arm holds the air tube securely in place.
Field tests showed the PowerDryTM system returned an average 80+% savings in energy costs, while providing comparable or improved drying in every application. Depending on operating hours, the return on investment from energy savings is often less than a year.
