The Series 1800 Sponge Dryer gets your product prepared for the next step in your line. It uses a unique drive system to keep your product moving through the machine, drying it well without damage. As your product passes through Series 1800, the sponges absorb water. The closed cell sponge technology in the Series 1800 means that the water doesn’t penetrate to the sponge’s interior, however, making easy to squeeze out so it is ready for the next piece of product passing through. The design also makes replacement of sponges easy, as unlike other machine, there is no need to remove bearings, sprockets or chains.
