Efficient Air Cooling
Unique drying technology: Efficient Air Cooling - EAC
Together with battenfeld-cincinnati, Labotek has developed a unique drying technology - EAC (Efficient Air Cooling) – efficiently utilizing the hot air generated during the extrusion process. EAC is a cooling system in battenfeld-cincinnati’s pipe head. This drying system is designed for all pipe extrusion lines using EAC technology.
Labotek has 3 drying systems available as standard. Systems are designed for drying HD-PE for 1,500, 2,000 & 2,500 kg/h. The energy savings achievable when the EAC drying system is working to capacity are significant; a 1,500 kg/h HD-PE system needs only 11 kW, whereas a traditional system would use 91 kW *. This results in 88% energy saving.
The savings will return the investment rapidly.
Comprehensive 3 years warranty, excl. wear parts.
*) Energy consumption figures measured/calculated with Labotek dimensioning software for HD-PE with delta T=70K, specific heat capacity of 2.3 kJ/kgK, 0.2% initial moisture and all resign heating energy from EAC.
EAC Drying systems is a patent-pending technology
