Session 5: Advancements in Metal Finishing Technical Improvements

Abstract Number:


Is your existing dryer a bottleneck in the production sequence? ‎Do you want to improve the quality ‎and speed of your drying? Do ‎your products require gentle temperatures? Are you looking for a ‎‎drying method that is both efficient and energy saving? Harter's ‎heat pump based condensation ‎drying reconciles all these ‎seemingly conflicting qualities: low temperatures, gentle drying, ‎short ‎drying cycles, quality results, customized air routing, ‎integrated heat pump technology, energetically ‎closed system.‎


Innovative Best Practices for Performance & Efficiency

The HARTER purpose devised Airgenex® drying technology is capable of drying surfaces and ‎solid matter of all kind in a gentle and energy saving way, plus reliably and fast. This so-‎called heat pump based condensation drying resolves drying problems and optimizes ‎manufacturing processes.‎

Very fast - Airgenex®condensation drying saves you 50% of time required by conventional ‎drying methods, such as hot air drying or simple fan-based systems. You will be surprised ‎how much we can reduce your drying time!‎

Very gentle - Airgenex® dries products or materials at low temperatures between 20°C and ‎‎90°C as required for the specific application. This low temperature drying prevents undesired ‎heating of the materials and products. Stain-free parts and reduced reject quantity means ‎higher productivity for you.‎

Very reliable - The dehumidification process takes place in a system which is closed in terms ‎of thermal
energy. Our drying systems are thus completely independent of effects of the ‎climate and the weather. This ensures highest process reliability for you. Plus you are on the ‎safe side if production quantities need to be raised.‎

Very efficient - The heart of the Airgenex® dryer is a highly efficient heat pump based ‎dehumidification module. Components installed are the best available, some of them ‎purpose built for us, and are made from high grade materials. We combine air ‎dehumidification with sophisticated air routing such that the dry process air is directed only ‎to where it is supposed to absorb humidity. Also, drying is effected in a closed system with ‎heat recuperation. This makes drying take full effect while being extremely cost effective.‎
