Our two Material Drying Technology courses will provide participants with a better understanding of how different polymers are best dried and prepared for reliable processing. These courses show participants how proper material handling and drying is critical to produce a consistent product and process. Course one reviews polymer basics and hygroscopic vs. non-hygroscopic polymers to better convey the importance of properly drying water sensitive materials.

These programs identify drying as a critical step when processing any plastic – and teach participants that proper preparation, handling, monitoring and controlling moisture levels results in higher quality parts, higher production yields and consistent processing. Material Drying Technology course two focuses on the operation and utilization of Hot Air Dryers, Compressed Air Dryers, Desiccant Dryers, and Vacuum Dyers in today’s production environments. Course two also teaches the participants how to Calculate Material Consumption, Residence Time, and Dryer Capacity.
