4.5 SILMAX drying hopper
(ATON in combination with
SILMAX Compact)
The SILMAX consists of a drying hopper, a pro-
cess heater and a conical air distributor.
The dried process air is heated by the process
heater and fed into the drying hopper. In the drying
hopper, the hot air meets the moist, cold plastic
granulate and the granulate releases moisture.
The moisture is supplied via the exhaust air to the
DRYMAX, which prepares the process air for the
next cycle.
If a SILMAX compact is combined with a
DRYMAX Aton the functions of menu 1
and 2 are not available. But the special
functions of menu 1 are available.
