Plastic Drying Technology course demystifies plastic drying by explaining how plastic drying is done, how to check drying operations, and how to troubleshoot problems caused by incomplete moisture removal. In addition, this course discusses the operation, control and maintenance of the three basic dryer designs – hot air, desiccant, and refrigerant-dehumidifying.
2 Lessons – 3 Hours
Train production personnel, supervisors and managers in the importance and methods of drying plastic raw material:
- Exercise greater control over the molding process
- Reduce rejects and scrap
- Improve quality
Many of today’s engineering grade resins and other moisture-sensitive materials must be properly dried prior to processing. Absorbed and surface moisture must be removed to avoid molded part splay and plastic degradation. Plastic drying is one of the most misunderstood technologies on the molding floor! This program explains how it’s done, how to check dryer operation and how to troubleshoot problems with two easy-to-understand interactive training lessons.
