Streat Instruments Develops New Tumble Dryer Controller

Streat Instruments Ltd., New Zealand, now offers its Streat Tumble Dryer Controller, which measures garment moisture in the exhaust ducts of tumble dryers. A non-contact moisture sensor installed in the duct replaces the direct-contact sensor traditionally used in Streat’s Drycom system.

The controller — which can be incorporated into existing dryers — detects when drying conditions have reached the optimum, preset level, and then automatically switches the cycle from drying to cooling, ensuring that garments are not overdried. Because the system relies on the condition of the load as opposed to the timer used in previous systems, operators can expect energy savings and consistent product quality, Streat reports.

The product has been installed in some Scottish cashmere and fine wool knitters’ finishing departments.
