T130 Dryer

“I work for an animal health pharmaceutical company.  We started a new process where large 1 liter bottles are autoclaved with hot raining water in a pressurized chamber.  We were looking at options of how to dry and cool the bottles exiting the autoclave.  We looked at several air knife systems where bottles would be dried individually on a conveyor for further downstream processing.   We asked Proto-Vest sales and engineering groups if they could do the drying while they were still in the bulk container holding 400 bottles.  They proposed the T130 Wind Shear car wash dryer.  I provided their group with the dimensions of our system, and they quickly sent me an approval drawing to look at.  The proposed system was very robust with a 30 HP motor and 2900 RPM speed.  It included a large blower with a molded casing.  The plenum is made of aluminum.  A tear resistant bag distributes the air.   We liked the idea, and proceeded with the order.  Delivery time was very quick and it fit into our schedule well.  It took one day to install.  We were very impressed after our first trial runs and it performed as advertised.  It was a very cost effective solution for our unique application.  A nice owner’s manual comes with the dryer too!”
