Wittmann offers a wide range of material dreyrs, including compact dryers, portable drying conveyors, segmented wheel dryers, and battery dryers. Many dryers have energy saving features, including:
Counterflow Regeneration - Quick dehumidification
SmartReg - Time-optimized regeneration
Dew Point Management - Regeneration adapted to the set dew point
3-Save - Thermic energy return
EcoMode - Adaptation of the drying process
Material Protection Function - Reduction of drying temperature
SmartFlow - Automatic air regulation
FCplus – Automatic Activation/Deactivation of Dry Air Generator - Optimization of the overall performace of the drying system
Wittmann Material Conveying
Wittmann offers a wide range of material conveying options, ranging from individual loaders to central material systems. Material storage available as well, including silos and surge bins.
Fully integrated systems are available including on-machine or central blending, distributed control technology, systems engineering and full installation services available.
Wittmann offers blenders in a wide variety of sizes as well as feed throat mounted dosing units.
Blender Advantages include:
Modularity - Removable material hopper lid c/w cover plate fits prebolted FEEDMAX series hopper loader flange.
High precision - Two independent 24-bit technology load cells provide more precise, noise-free weight signal readings than single load cell systems.
Reliable material dispensing valves - Material hoppers with normally closed integral dispensing valves for positive shut-off. The actuating mechanism of the dispensing valve is part of the center body for simple hopper handling without unpractical or unsafe hose or wire connections.
Unique “Clip-on” corner window - Simple “clip-on” corner window provides full view for material inspection and detaches quickly for simpler, easier cleaning access compared to other designs.
Easy handling - Two handles allow safe easy handling of material hoppers. Easily removable Material hoppers made entirely of wear resistant stainless steel and are equipped with self-locking toggle latches.
Ergonomic and dustproof - Simple swing door, opens via quick fastener without using tools. The door is secured by a safety switch.
Beside the press, central, and under the press granulators available in both screenless and conventional styles. Various throughputs and sizes are available depending on the application.
Robust construction provides for an extremely quiet and long lasting granulator suitable in any environnment.
Water Temperature Controllers – Innovative and compact designs featuring all non-ferrous construction, vacuum circuit and mold purge capability, with a water temperature range of up to 360°F.
Portable Chillers – Air-cooled and water-cooled ranging from one to twenty tons.
Water Flow Regulators - Worldwide distributed, Wittmann water flow regulators are the number one in the plastics industry. Compared to competitor products, they offer many advantages, and they are available for the most different applications.
