Almco Produces Line of Round-Bowl Dryers Using Dry Maize for Moisture Absorption



ALBERT LEA, Minnesota - For exceptional drying of machined parts after washing and for removing surface oil and grease, ALMCO, Inc., has developed a round-bowl vibratory dryer that uses dry maize, which also polishes the parts during their submersion.

The OR-CD Series is specifically designed for high-volume, in-line production applications where time-savings and equipment reliability are critical. Parts can be fed into the ALMCO machine individually or in batches, for once-around-and-out drying before the next production step.

Available with tub capacities of 3, 5, l0 and l5 cubic feet, the dryer offers variable time-cycles by adjusting progression of the parts in ALMCO's natural-contour tub. It features a vertical-shaft vibrator which can easily be reached for maintenance, a rugged l5 hp, l800 rpm totally enclosed motor, and sound-deadening material to comply with EPA and OSHA standards.

Operation of the dryer is from a separate pedestal where a NEMA Type l2 panel enclosure houses remote machine electrics. Controls are in conformance to NMTBA specifications, with the motor operating on either 230- or 460-volt current.

Options available are a maize-heating feature for even greater efficiency, an elapsed-time recorder, an automatic lubrication system, and extra screen sections for internal separation.

For further information, contact ALMCO, Inc., 507 West Front Street, Albert Lea, Minnesota 56007, phone 1-800-521-2740. The company is the world's largest manufacturer and an international marketer of automated equipment for metal parts deburring and finishing and a leading producer of parts cleaning and drying machines and systems.
