Help with drying system for nickel chrome plating plant



1998

Can anybody help in our search for a decent drying system?

We run a manual shop producing gold, nickel & chrome on all types of base metals inc stainless, diecast, plastic.

The dryer will need to cope with about 120 jigs per hour.

If you have steam or hot water available, there should be no difficulty in building a workable box-type dryer for racks of plated work. The secret is to not to get cheap on the recirc fan. You want to blow the water off with warm AIR, not dry it on with radiant heat.

If you come out of a warm/hot rinse tank, you can rig a system that uses excess air from your regenerative blower in a drying box setup at very little cost.If you do not have a regenerative blower, consider getting a good used one. The intake is filtered and it is oil free.
