Maguire introduces 2-chamber dryer

Jan. 23, 2023
The Ultra 2200 speeds throughput as the chambers alternate to keep up an uninterrupted flow of dry material.

Ultra 2200 Maguire’s Ultra series dryers use a vacuum drying process for fast, economical drying of resins. They offer energy and time savings when compared to desiccant dryers with comparable throughputs, and no regeneration process is required.  

What’s new? The Ultra 2200 dryer, which Maguire introduced at the K show. This model introduces the use of two chambers. Each chamber can handle loading, heating, vacuum and dispensing functions independently, and they alternate to keep up an uninterrupted flow of dry material. 

Benefits Higher throughput. The Ultra 2200 is the largest in Maguire’s Ultra series, with a maximum capacity of 2,200 pounds per hour, and is designed to meet the throughput demands of central drying, sheet extrusion, preform and fiber markets. It has a compact design and can operate in areas with a relatively low ceiling. Maguire’s Ultra dryers use about 60 percent less energy than conventional desiccant dryers.
