Toro’s Rejects Dry Up

Project Description

Use of an H Series four-bed dryer from Dri-Air Industries Inc. (East Windsor, CT) helped the Irrigation Products Div. of The Toro Co. (El Paso, TX) reduce its scrap rate on the laseretched parts that it precision molds in Dow’s Pellethane TPU from about 2025% down to .0003%. What’s more, the dryer helped to cut setup times for the cell in half. You might think that a $1.8 billion company that molds parts for irrigation products wouldn’t have much use for materials that hate water. But the folks at Toro’s El Paso facility (Toro El Paso) say they need the long-term durability, chemical resistance, and all of the other performance properties that engineering resins provide to extend the service life of their products.
