Determine the moisture content of pulp, paperboard, consistency pads, newsprint, kraft, groundwood, and tissue with Emerson’s highly-regarded Speed Dryers, used with confidence by the pulp and paper industry per applicable TAPPI, CPPA, ASTM, and APPITA test methods.Using the latest technology, our Speed Dryers consistently maintain a temperature range proportionally across the entire working surface. This eliminates any non-linearity of heat and utilizes the entire test surface. The heat plate is made of a heavy, precision, flat aluminum for accurate testing.

Using the Emerson Speed Dryer and a direct reading basis weight scale, an accurate percent moisture determination can be made on an average sheet in less than five minutes to tear-out of final weight. With a 230°C option, the speed dryer is being used more and more to test the moisture content of non-woven fiber materials.

Features

  • Regularly used with the applicable TAPPI, CPPA, ASTM and APPITA test methods
  • New dielectric distributed heat plate provides stable linear heat source for drying samples
  • New tight PID thermal control of the heat plate allows desired temperatures to be reached fast and accurately regardless of varying load conditions
  • New multilayer ceramic insulation maintains extremely high heat source efficiency
  • New non-conductive cover handle eliminates the transfer of heat and is now cool to the touch
  • Our heavy vented cover, hinged at the rear, is fitted with a non-asbestos breathable fabric cover pad that functions as a dryer felt and presses the sample or hand sheet firmly against the flat, heated plate
  • Digital set point controller and heavy duty solid state relay provide reliable long life control
  • Ruggedly built and constructed for continuous service in pulp and paper mill laboratories and other industrial testing environments

Specifications

  • Control accuracy ±1°C at 105°C
  • Range to 150°C (230°C available on request)
  • Plate area 14″ X 24″
  • Enhanced surface temperature linearity +/- 2.5 degree C of the entire plate and <+/- 0.1 degree C/cm variation (except perimeter)
  • Voltage 110VAC or 220VAC (specify)
  • 1000 Watts
  • Weight 45 lbs
  • Shipping dimensions 30″ x 9″ x 20″

Accessories/Options

  • 230°C option allows for test preparation of non-woven fiber materials
