A can drying system that fully satisfies the elimination of stress corrosion by removing the required amount of water from can lids as defined by the Practice Code drawn-up jointly by the MPMA (Metal Packaging Manufacturers’ Association) and BLRA (Brewers’ and Licensed Retailers Association).
The Can Drying Tunnel is constructed from polypropolene with a stainless steel plenum and adjustment plate. The tunnel acts as a baffle plate for both sound and liquid.
ACI’s Can Drying Tunnels are available in a number of different configurations depending on parameters such as the speed of conveyor line and the area of the can that is required to be dried.
