Installation and Integration of a HP Dryer for a Packaging Plant

We were contracted by a packaging plant customer to complete the installation of a C’ Ville high pressure dryer unit, ensuring full integration into their operations. This project incorporated the demolishing of existing HOC dryer, and Southern Machine provided all required materials and labor.

We handled every aspect of the installation process, including:

  • the fabrication and installation of the inlet heat exchangers
  • separators
  • cool, wet air header
  • tie in of the hot wet air header and dryer header
  • cooling water install
  • condenser drain install
  • relocation of the N2 system

We fabricated 80 carbon steel piping, welding it into the system as specified. Additional components provided included four 6" 600# and three 6” 300# ABZ butterfly shutoff valves. Functionality testing and visual inspections were carried out during and post installation to ensure accuracy and integrity of service.

This project was completed within a 4-month turnaround time, installed on site for the customer in Cartersville, GA.
