WITTMANN Material Dryers - Card G and E Series

These compressed air dryers are small, simple and effective. The CARD G and E series are ideal for simple drying applications. Once the temperature has been set and the optional loader has been activated, nothing stands in the way of effective drying.

» SLEEP Mode – No over-drying/thermal degradation of the material due to the reduction of the drying parameters during machine downtimes.
» Integrated control for loaders – For the automatic filling of the drying hopper, CARD dryers offer the possibility of a material loader connection.
» Low maintenance – No dehumidification media are used, thus only the air outlet filter has to be cleaned.
