Available in configurations of up to 170 frames, Zephyrus represents the missing link and completion of a journey that began with the changes requested by clients, subsequently implemented so that MACH could also be used to dry wet hides.
Zephyrus, in its final configuration, is in fact a machine unique to the world, combining the productivity and drying performance of a rotary dryer and the versatility and ergonomics of a horizontal toggle frame dryer.
It is supplied standard with:
special sensors to detect the moisture content of hides entering and leaving the oven
heat recovery and/or dehumidification systems to automatically regulate the ideal humidity level based on the set recipe
an additional internal circuit for air exchange and automatic holding of the set humidity at the outlet
half-frame expansion in four steps and adjustable, either in cm or in kg, for real control of the traction exerted on the hide fibres depending on the product
These characteristics ensure the hides leave the machine perfectly flat and dry with the desired residual moisture, soft and already conditioned, having been dried in a ventilated, low-temperature environment.
In order to preserve the natural quality of the hide and avoid unwanted grain loosening, it is, in fact, important to work at temperatures near but never above 38–40°C. This knowledge has led to the evolution of these machines and unprecedented results.
Moreover, the possibility to use – on request – the Sensation system for finished hides makes MACH Zephyrus the only machine of its kind in the current market for drying frames.
