NGX Series Desiccant Bed Dryer
Sterling brings a century of experience to provide premium value and quality. The NGX Series Desiccant Bed Dryer leverages the Sterling legacy and expertise to provide a system that is suited for most drying applications including extrusion, injection molding, and blow molding.
The NGX Series Dryer utilizes sophisticated control algorithms that optimize each adsorption and regeneration cycle for the ideal balance of performance and efficiency. Many competitive dryers run at a constant energy consumption profile, which results in higher energy usage.
The NGX Series Dryer can save up to 27% in energy costs without sacrificing performance.

Best-in-Class Drying Performance Maintains Quality
Desiccant Bed Drying Technology is Known for Excellent Drying Performance
When conditions get tough, the NGX Series Desiccant Bed Dryer delivers. The NGX Series was engineered to improve the desiccant bed concept by optimizing air flow, temperature and time duration.
The NGX Dryer also adjusts the regeneration cycle based on operating conditions. If dew point or material moisture levels change, the smart control system adjusts the regeneration cycle accordingly. Additionally, over-dry protection comes standard to protect sensitive resin. The result is efficient, best-in-class drying performance.
Engineered for Efficiency
Optional Switch-On Dew Point Feature Provides Additional Energy Savings
During the cold winter months and cool summer nights, ambient dew points often drop substantially. The NGX Series Dryer takes advantage of these changing conditions in a smart way. Sterling’s Switch-On Dew Point option monitors critical parameters that allow the dryer to optimize each desiccant bed cycle time, resulting in energy reduction.
