The ARC Dry-off Oven is designed for high efficiency with VFD fans, dynamic oven balance based on production conditions and proprietary insulation technology.
Enhance your can washing operations by integrating the ARC Pacific Dry-off Oven into your manufacturing process. The Dry-off Oven is designed to have a reduced footprint, with high efficiency 6-inch insulated walls, and 2-inch safety cool walls that helps the oven retain heat and minimize gas consumption.
The oven is equipped with VFDs to help optimize air flow control, which in turn lower energy usage. The recirculation system automates the fresh and exhaust air to keep it balanced under different production conditions. This minimizes gas consumption based on the actual line speed.
To ensure minimized can spoilage during the drying process, a vacuum suction system pulls the cans to the belt for better stability. Height requirements for can size changes can be quickly and efficiently changed by the Automatic Nozzle Height Adjustment which is controlled via the HMI.
Additionally, the Dry-off Oven is designed with various meters and regulators to help ensure safe and efficient line processes. The Exhaust Orifice monitor, tracks exhaust air volume ensuring the machines operation follows all EHS guidelines. The Gas Flow Meter and Regulator measures gas consumption and regulates the burner flames to help ensure efficient process control.
The cans are loaded directly from the Washer onto the Dry-off Oven belt via a vacuum transfer unit. The water vacuum system removes excessive water droplets and film prior to the Dry-off process which helps in reducing gas consumption. Once the can enter the chamber, the oven evaporates the remaining water on the interior and exterior of the cans.
As they move through the Oven, the VFD recirculation fans are blowing the precisely heated air onto the cans to remove and evaporate any remaining water. The exhaust fan which removes evaporated water, helps keep the dry-off chamber at a negative pressure, adjusting fresh air intake to the speed the line is running. This automation of fresh and exhaust air minimizes gas consumption providing a significant savings opportunity for canmakers.
