Price-Koch Industries has developed its drying system through many years of research and development, and currently offer two different methods. One uses multiple air knives in a vertical position, and dependent on the product size, it indexes the knives back and forth across the part.
A new method for drying that Price-Koch has developed is a dehumidifying system, which can be used in both rack and barrel applications. Rather than forcing air directly on the part, we circulate dried, heated air through and/or across racked parts or a barrel, and then circulate the air through an offline drying system that pulls the moisture out using dehumidifier technology.
Dependent upon the system throughput capacity we will build single or multiple bay systems. If required, we can design the system for an air make-up system to be attached allowing for clean warm air to the blowers. The air knives in the system are installed in pairs that oppose each other allowing turbulence in and around the part to facilitate immediate water removal, rather than dry it on the part. The blowers that supply the air to the knives are attached directly to a plenum that will carry the air, thus eliminating any hoses and connections.
