RDX-P Series

RDX-P Series Desiccant Wheel Dryer

Packed with Performance

The RDX-P is the ideal dehumidifying wheel dryer to integrate with your central loading system or to handle multiple hoppers. It offers more features as standard equipment with a smaller footprint than comparable systems, giving you maximum performance in minimal space.

Sterling’s desiccant wheel technology is specifically designed for the plastics industry and delivers optimal performance. Its unique, honeycomb design—molecular sieve desiccant, bonded and then baked onto proprietary paper—eliminates powder that can contaminate the system. Its large contact area effectively absorbs at high temperatures, drying resin in half the time while stabilizing dew points at a constant –40°F.

Point-to-Point Dry Air Conveying

The RDX-P drying hopper is equipped with a programmable loader, which releases measured amounts of resin at specific intervals. Pellets are conveyed using warm, dry air and delivered for the next loading cycle on a just-in-time schedule. This keeps pellets at the optimum moisture level from the dryer to the molding machine, maximizing performance and minimizing part defects.

Packed With Performance
  • The RDX-P combines a dehumidifying wheel dryer and vacuum loader into one compact design. It offers more features as standard equipment with a smaller footprint than comparable systems, giving you maximum performance in minimal space.
Virtually Maintenance-Free
  • Decades of research and development have been poured into our desiccant wheel technology, resulting in a one of-a-kind desiccant wheel specifically designed for the rigors of the plastics industry. Our desiccant wheel is expected to run up to 15 years, and is backed by an industry leading 10-year warranty. Heater circuits have solid state relays, providing 10 years of maintenance-free operation. Routine maintenance can be performed from the front of the system, quickly and easily.

RDX-P Desiccant Wheel Technology Cuts Drying Time

  • Compare to the Competition: Drop moisture levels faster. Start molding sooner.
