Plate Flash Dryer FlashMaid

FlashMaidTM Plate Dryer

International Thermal Systems is the leader in manufacturing flash plate dryers. Designed to interface with all manufacturers pasters, The FlashMaid™ Self-Cleaning Plate Dryer is the only flash plate dryer on the market which automatically cleans lead dust from the inside of the oven. This feature means: less free lead in the air, less down time for maintenance, enhanced temperature uniformity on the parts and less wasted energy through heat absorption and restricted air flow because of trapped dust inside the dryer ductwork.

International Thermal Systems plate dryers are recognized in the battery industry as the leader in reliability and innovative design.

This Flashmaid™ was sold to a customer in Mexico. It is a Standard M22 model that receives the plates from the paster and flash dries them at temperatures up to 900 Degrees F to reduce the plate moisture. If the plates do not properly dry, they will stick together when stacked and not be able to be cured, separated, and assembled into the battery assembly. As a measure to assist our customers to reduce the amount of lead dust in the air, we have added baghouse connections to the end stand that keeps the ends of the oven under a negative pressure to reduce as much lead dust emissions as possible. This can be seen on the right side of the end stand and is clearly labeled.

ITS is the only manufacturer on the market that designs and sells self cleaning flash dryers with components specifically engineered to help our customers give their employees a cleaner and safer place to work.

Overview

The FlashMaid™ Plate Flash Dryer is designed to reduce free lead in the air and automatically clean lead dust from inside the oven. This unique technology is the only equipment in the market that will maximize production efficiencies and minimize energy consumption.

The FlashMaid™ Plate Flash Dryer will automatically remove lead oxide dust particles from the lower ductwork and deposit them into a removable tray. The self-cleaning feature means less downtime for maintenance and end stands incorporate integrated baghouse connections. Lead oxide dust particle buildup can waste energy absorbing heat and restrict airflow. With lead dust particles automatically removed, the FlashMaid™ Plate Flash Dryer operates more efficiently than its competitors.
