Assembly MDE 40

Move the small compact drier to the

designated location and fix casters

Mount drying bin onto the injection moulding

machine, if necessary

Check location of the screen insert

(1, Fig. 3-3) in the drying bin (2). To do this:

- open lid of the drying bin

- carry out visual check

- if necessary, put screen insert in the

correct position

If necessary, mount hopper loader onto the

drying bin

Function MDE 40

4 Function

4.1 Function principle

The blower (2, Fig. 4-1) pulls moist air from the drying bin air via a preconnected filter (3). This air is mixed

with a small part of ambient air. Via the reversing valve (1) the air mix is blown into the desiccant cartridge 2

(5). At this point, the moisture is extracted from this air by means of a desiccant (absorption medium).

Fig. 4-1

Function layout

The dried air from the desiccant cartridge flows into the heater on the drying bin, where it is heated to the

preselected temperature. A separate heater is allocated to each drying bin. This makes it possible to set a

different temperature for each drying bin.

The hot air flows uniformly distributed from the bottom to the top through the plastic granulate, heating and

drying it. The hot and moist air is then aspirated once again by the blower.

When the desiccant in the desiccant cartridges is saturated, it will not absorb any more moisture, and must

be regenerated. This regeneration process operates in parallel with the drying process in the desiccant

cartridge 1.

A part of the dried air from desiccant cartridge 2 flows through desiccant cartridge 1, where it is heated by

the regeneration heater (7) and dries the saturated desiccant. Then, the air flows through the reversing valve

into the open air.

After a preset time the reversing valve switches over. The moist air arrives in desiccant cartridge 1 where it

is dried. The regeneration heater (6) is activated and the desiccant in the desiccant cartridge 2 is

regenerated.

Operation MDE 40

5 Operation

5.1 Switch-on

The prerequisites for trouble-free operation:

Small compact dryer and drying bins are plugged in and connected with the air hoses

Hopper loader on the drying bin is ready for operation or

in case of manual filling: Dummy cover on the drying bin is closed

When granulate with a health risk is dried, the regenerating

air has to be carried off!

Safety instructions of the manufacturer have to be

observed!

During operation with maximum

temperature, some parts of the system

might become hot.

Don't touch the system! Risk of injury!

No further operating procedures are required. The entire granulate drying process operates automatically.

When the heater at the drying bin is heating, the LED (1, Fig. 5-1) lights up.

5.2 Switch-off

Switch off the drying bin control with switch (4, Fig. 5-2)

Put illuminated switch (2, Fig. 5-3) to "O" position

White light (2, Fig. 5-3) goes out

the small compact dryer and drying bins are switched off

NOTE

The blower runs on for approx. 20 seconds.

For short operation interrupts (< 20 seconds) the drying bin control

does not have to be switched off.

5.3 Manual filling of the drying bin

CAUTION

While filling the drying bin with granulate take care that the cover of the

drying bin will not close inadvertently.

Risk of injury!

Operation MDE 40

5.4 Trouble-shooting

Always disconnect the mains plug of the small compact

dryer and the drying bin heater from the power supply

before carrying out any fault rectifications.

Secure EMERGENCY-OFF switch at the small compact dryer

against unauthorised reconnection.

Faults may only be rectified by authorised, trained and

properly instructed specialists.

At malfunction, the alarm display (3, Fig. 5-3) on the operating panel lights up.

The faults listed are examples only, and are not to be regarded as exhaustive.

The after cooler is required for drying with very

high temperatures (approx. > 120 °C).

The cooler the return air temperature, the better

the air absorption of the return air, i.e. efficiency

of the drying system increases.

The return air from the drying bins passes

through the heat exchanger (1, Fig. A-1).
