Ranking of Top 4 industrial methods of drying parts after the industrial washing process!

In an industrial context, proper drying of manufactured parts is crucial to ensure the quality and precision of the machining process.
Drying systems play a fundamental role in this, and the choice of the appropriate method can influence the final quality of products.
In this article, we will discuss the four most popular possible drying methods, applicable at almost every stage of production. We will focus on their application in an industrial environment from the least economical to the most efficient method.


Drying with compressed air:

One of the most popular rough drying method, often confused with thorough drying, is to blow away the moisture remaining after the washing process with compressed air.

Thanks to the accumulated energy during air compression, the impact force of the jet is exceptionally high and is therefore perfect for removing moisture from hard-to-reach places.

This process can also be used to cool off parts to a specific temperature required after the washing process.

Hot air drying:

Hot air drying uses heaters to quickly heat the ambient air in order to evaporate the liquid from the surface of the washed elements.

This method requires slightly more time than the method described above to completely dry the part. This is due to the fact that moisture must accumulate a specific amount of heat to start the evaporation process.

This method can be used especially when the parts are loosely arranged or have a delicate finish. This approach also works for components with large or complex surfaces.

Drying with a stream of heated air:

The air jet drying method uses blowers and specially designed nozzles to create air curtains that push the remains of the cleaning medium away from the detail.

Dry, moisture-free air is blown over the components, quickly eliminating the liquid.

The key to successful application of the correct drying system is to use a large volume of air instead of a high pressure one.

Vacuum drying system:

Vacuum drying technology is the most efficient and widely used in both solvent and water based cleaning systems.
The processed parts are introduced into the working chamber, where the pressure is lowered to

1-2 mbar

thus lowering the boiling point of the washing medium, which enables its complete and quick evaporation. This method is particularly useful for details with complex geometry or blind holes.

The Castor company has been using this technology in its vacuum cleaning devices for over 35 years, ensuring that the details are perfectly degreased and perfectly dry, while maintaining the lowest possible operating costs.
The choice of drying method therefore depends on the specific needs of the production process and the materials used.

Castor Unia Gospodarcza Sp. z o. o. stands out by implementing advanced and tailor-made solutions that contribute to achieving the required or increasing efficiency and quality in industrial cleaning processes.
