RJ Turbo plastic dryer

Plastic Dryer - RJ-Turbo Friction Dryer

Drying plastic can be a difficult process. In many cases, multiple machines are required to bring the moisture content down to suitable levels for extrusion. That’s why we have developed a new type of plastic dryer, the RJ-Turbo friction dryer. 

How does the RJ-Turbo plastic dryer work?

As the wet polymer particles enter the plastic dryer, the impact of the chromium carbide paddles impart centrifugal force on the material. This forces the moisture through the perforated screen whilst retaining the desire material inside the chamber. 

Each of the 32 paddles present on the RJ-Turbo rotor can be individually calibrated to provide an application specific balance between throughput and drying capability. 

This machine is available as a standalone machine, ready to be retrofitted into any existing plastic washing plant. If required Rotajet can provide the RJ-Turbo as a full process plant, utilising more of our recycling machinery.
