Can Dryers – Custom-Configured To Boost Output, Improve Quality, Cut Costs

Achieve line speeds of 60,000+ cans per hour. Stop rust forming on cans. Eliminate transgranular stress corrosion (TGSC).

Turnkey solutions: choose from premium fully enclosed systems (<85dBA), partially enclosed systems (90-95dBA), cost-effective open systems or out-of-the-box dryers (designed for craft breweries).


Worried about transgranular stress corrosion? The risk of TGSC rises significantly in hot and humid conditions (30°C, +60% relative humidity). Failure can occur within days or months, depending on the conditions. Corrosive weakening and internal pressure can cause the can’s score panel to burst open – wetting other cans in a shrink-wrapped pack, leading to other can failures.

For stress corrosion solutions, specify advanced single- or multi-lane can-drying tunnels which use low-pressure oil-free air to blow away moisture. So you can meet and exceed the industry standard of <3mg on the can end.

Y-shaped slots in the plates remove all moisture from the vulnerable ring-pull area. This design is scalable, ready for when you ramp up production. Get expert advice – we can tell you how fast your production will be with a new ACI air drying system.
