Product Development and Marketing Co. has designed and built a dryer system for a Class 1 or Class 10 cleanroom laundry. The system dries cleanroom apparel, including latex and vinyl gloves, and cleanroom wipes.
The dryer is built with electropolished stainless steel for all internal “wetted” areas. All welds in the dryer are continuous, dressed and air tight. The trunnion is plated and gasketed to eliminate corrosion and entry of contaminated air. Also, the trunnion eliminates the need for idlers to support the cylinder (rotating basket), which helps stop particulate contamination. A special high-temperature gasket makes a seal with the front of the dryer, thereby eliminating by-pass air and allowing easy cleaning of the internal surfaces. A HEPA filter system supplies air to the dryer. An ULPA or VLSI filter can be used if particulate of 0.12 to 0.3 microns is targeted.
