All around your shape
The DRV series comprises the most innovative and advanced drying systems on the market, with several PET Solutions patents. The system is designed to be used with recycled materials, but can be used also with virgin material. The DRV Series is equipped with vacuum process technology that allows the extraction of VOC
contaminants (Benzene, Limonene, etc.) normally present in rPET and coming from foreign materials (such as metal, glass, paper, etc.), additives and non-miscible polymers (such as PVC, PP, etc.).
Vacuum technology no longer requires the use of molecular sieves in the system and renders the use of oil condensers obsolete, as it is capable of removing all VOC contaminants from the material through the vacuum system. The range can cover productions from 500 to 1500 kg/h, with a residual moisture value at the end of the process of less than 40ppm.
7” TOUCH display
Microprocessor control with 7” TOUCH display for easy programming (material type and troughput selectable from database)
4 hoppers for 4 drying phases (pre-heating, heating, vacuum & maintenance)
Liquid ring vacuum pump
Temperature control and management in the drying phases
Level sensors for residence time monitoring
Temperature sensors for process management
Automatic shutdown to prevent granule degradation
RS485 Modbus interface
Material changeover and plant start-up
The series technology allows the material changeover time to be reduced by 65% from 6 hours (standard drying) to 2 hours (vacuum drying).
Reduced energy consumption
The vacuum system guarantees an energy consumption of 70 to 80 W/kg depending on the application with virgin material and rPET. A conventional system consumes up to 120 W/kg with rPET material.
Maintenance is reduced to filter cleaning only; it doesn’t requires the traditional heat exchangers or molecular sieves of a standard drying system.
Ease of control
The keyboard and multilingual digital display interface provides constant monitoring of the machine by highlighting key parameters such as temperature, dew point material level in the hopper, vacuum level, etc.
The system only needs electrical and pneumatic utilities, making connection to the HTC network unnecessary.
