The problem? Because the ultrasonic cleaning process was so fast, items began to pile up while waiting to be dried.
The solution? The Omega 6900 tunnel dryer was created to alleviate this bottleneck.
Tunnel Dryers were originally manufactured by Omegasonics for disaster restoration cleaning purposes. However, building upon the initial success found in the restoration market, numerous other industrial applications are continuously being discovered for aiding in parts drying. Countless ways of combining ultrasonic washers and tunnel dryers are being implemented to improve overall cleaning process efficiencies, saving you time, labor, money. And in the highly competitive contents restoration industry, contractors are looking for any edge they can get.
After extensive research, development, and field-testing, Omegasonics has developed a tunnel drying unit that allows for washed parts to be dried instantly without much effort from the operator. As an example, our dryers use guillotine doors, locking in heat and airflow necessary to properly dry parts while maintaining energy efficient protocols.
Alternative drying methods from other manufacturers include separate ovens which have no airflow, centrifugal dryers that can’t be used on sensitive parts due to mechanical damage, or hand held dryers which are extremely slow. Using these other methods can increase your drying times, thus costing you money due to increased production costs.
Tunnel dryers can be applied in both industrial and restoration settings. The key is getting help with the application from a knowledgeable ultrasonic cleaning supplier who can provide advice on maximizing your efficiency so that more green goes into your pocket.
