Paxton Products compressed air system features lower energy costs via reduced compressed air usage
Paxton Products has introduced the PowerDry system in response to widespread efforts to lower energy costs through reduced compressed air usage. The affordable system was designed as an easy-to-install replacement for plastic comb or fan nozzles, air jets, disk nozzles, drilled pipe and other common pneumatic blow-off devices. The versatile system generates high velocity airflows for effective debris and moisture removal. Its washdown-capable design is suited for food, beverage and packaging operations, such as container drying prior to date coding, sealing, labeling, packaging, etc. As a blower-driven alternative to compressed air, the patent pending PowerDry system eliminates potential contamination from oils and scale in the compressed air supply.
The compact PowerDry system incorporates a high performance Paxton centrifugal blower that develops maximum air flow and pressure from a small, 3HP motor. An FDA compliant hose carries the airflow to a unique 6-nozzle air tube that delivers successive hits of high impact air. A fully adjustable, stainless steel, mounting arm holds the air tube securely in place.
Field tests showed the PowerDryTM system returned an average of over 80% savings in energy costs, while providing comparable or improved drying in every application. Depending on operating hours, the return on investment from energy savings is often less than a year.
