Stationary plastics dryer with JETBOXX® technology
HELIO®MAT

Pre-drying station with removable drying containers

Fixed drying station for plastic granulate

The material can be pre-dried in.drying containers at the stationary plastics dryer. The drying container can be removed and brought to the processing machine if needed. It will be attached directly onto the feeding section there and the dried batch can be processed. If the material should be kept dry on the machine, the JETBOXX® docking system forms a compact top-mounted dryer in addition.

  • Pre-drying station for quick material change
  • Dryer station for sampling batches
  • Batch drying for small quantities / sampling
  • Laboratory applications
  • Cleanroom supply with hermetically sealed dry material containers

Benefits

By mounting a conveying device, it is possible to switch immediately to continuous drying with automatic refill.

  • Material change without waiting time
  • No humidifying afterwards
  • No problems with cleaning
  • Detachable drying containers

Low construction depth

The dryer can be placed directly against the wall as the HELIO®MAT can be operated just from the front. Benefit: low space requirement.

Docking system

The sliding rail of the rack wrap around the rail of the docking station for a better handover of the drying container.

Use as pre-drying station

Fixed dryer station

The filling from a material container is possible manually or using a compressed air based hopper loader, which is placed on the container cover. The drying containers are docked at the station and the material is specifically pre-dried.

Movable rack

Once the drying time has elapsed the hermetically sealed containers can be transported easily to the point of use.

Machine

The drying container filled with dryed granules is attached directly onto the injection molding machine via the sliding rail.

Keeping dry

If the material should be kept dry on the machine, a JETBOXX® docking plate with dryer control are used in addition. The drying containers are docked via a sliding rail.

 

JETBOXX® Docking system

JETBOXX® Docking system

The docking plate serves as holding device for the dryer control and as docking station for changing drying containers, mounting with L-shape sliding quides on sliding rail. When the drying time has elapsed the hermetically sealed containers can be moved comfortably by rack to the point of consumption.

Version A

The dryer filled with dried granules is attached directly onto the feed section of the injection molding machine via a sliding rail.

Version B

A docking plate with dryer control is fixed on the injection molding machine. The drying containers are docked via a sliding rail.

Version C

The docking plate including the dryer control is fixed directly on the injection molding machine. The drying containers are docked via a sliding rail. The dried granules are conveyed via a suction device onto the injection molding machine.

Version D

The docking plate and dryer control are mounted on a base frame / stand-alone station.

Drying containers

For portions of 0.5 - 30 kg

Choose between eight different drying container sizes. The drying containers can be opened easily on top for filling or cleaning. Glass containers have a swivelling cover, 6/12/20/30 liter containers are equipped with a hinged cover. Glass drying containers with a volume of 0.5 - 5 liters are particularly energy-saving despite full transparency thanks to their special double-walled glass construction. Uniform distribution guarantees, that your material is dry and homogeneous at the right temperature.

JETBOXX® docking station

Every docking station is an independent JETBOXX® dryer

The HELIO®MAT dryer station can perform up to four independent drying operations. Each docking station is a full JETBOXX® WINsystem® plastic granulate dryer and can be individually programmed.
