  • Dryer temperature control + fan speed control through data acquired via Profinet/ControlNet.
  • CD and MD resin amount controls are standard (based on measured dry resin %).
  • Web based database reports viewable from any factory networked computer (option).
  • Wide measuring range.
  • Good correlation to lab results.
  • Easy and convenient to install and operate.
  • Capability to work with threading chains.
  • Tailor made head designs for various applications.
