ProTec Polymer Processing will showcase at Fakuma 2015 a full range of high-performance, energy-efficient integrated system solutions for efficient material handling, including conveying, drying, dosing and mixing. ProTec will introduce the new energy-efficient large SOMOS® T140 eco auxiliary dryer with its updated design. In addition, ProTec´s new high performance SSP reactor for the solid-state post-condensation of plastics, which is optimised in terms of system and process engineering, will be highlighted at the trade fair. Finally, following the recent acquisition of PolymersNetGmbH of Lampertheim/Germany, ProTec will present their LFT (long-fibre-reinforced thermoplastics) systems platform. Customers now will have a single source for the design, machine building and system installation of high-performance turn-key systems for producing LFT.


New top of the range auxiliary dryer

The new SOMOS® T140 eco auxiliary dryer provides higher material throughput to the SOMOS® T/TF eco series of mobile dry air dryers. Offering hopper volume of 400 l and dry air throughput of 140 m³/h, it is a distinct step up from the five previously available auxiliary dryers with effective volumes ranging from 30 l to 300 l, which is also reflected in the updated design. The new dryer also features an updated touchscreen controller which offers numerous drying parameters tailored to the specific material as well as versatile documentation functions.

Like all SOMOS® auxiliary dryers, the new T140 eco consists of a dry air generator and an insulated stainless steel drying hopper. To minimise energy consumption, the dryer is equipped with energy-saving technology which SOMOS® dryers are known for. Features include automatic adaptation of drying air volume to material throughput (ALAV) and the SUPER SOMOS control mechanism for adapting desiccant regeneration to the particular moisture loading of the adsorbent. Drying temperatures of 60°C to 140°C at a drying air dew point temperature of -35°C are standard while a high-temperature version is also available for drying temperatures of up to 200°C.
