Every industry, every system, every application has its own peculiarities. Over the past decades, DRYTEC has produced effective, reliable drying and humidification systems for a wide range of applications. We grow with the challenges and always respond to new requirements.

Over the decades, this has resulted in a modular range of systems that is unrivalled in the market. Our scope of services also includes customised developments for special tasks. Our flexibility in realising tailor-made solutions is what makes our services to appealing to customers all over the world.

No matter whether it’s a standard system or special solution: All DRYTEC systems have been intensively tested and stand out thanks to their economic operation and high efficiency.

System set-up & commissioning

A highly qualified team of engineers, technicians and process experts is at your disposal for installing and commissioning your system.  We install your systems or components according to your order, either as part of a supervision installation or as a turnkey installation.

Subsequently, the dry and wet commissioning as well as the acceptance runs are carried out under our trained eyes. Of course, we also offer customised solutions and adaptations to existing products. We will be happy to provide training for your system operators before and during the commissioning phase.

Consistent and ongoing research and quality assurance

Our claim is to produce drying and humidification technology that meets the highest requirements. To achieve this, our qualified developers, engineers and process technicians dedicate themselves to their work every day with great commitment.

We benefit from the world's largest production-scale test facility at the Technology Center of our sister company KROENERT. It serves DRYTEC as a development platform and we develop solutions, optimise and test products in close cooperation with our customers.

Innovations and decades of experience have paved the way to success for some of the most demanding technical concepts: The CONTEC nozzle system, static charging in rehumidifying and substrate intercooling by means of circulating nitrogen are examples of how we have implemented trailblazing ideas by means of state-of-the-art technologies.


Focus on efficiency and profitability

We know from experience: Drying plays an essential role in the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of an entire system. Topics such as air routing and treatment, external air tightness, thermal insulation and nozzle technology receive special attention in the development and manufacturing process of compact dryers.

DRYTEC systems are designed to fulfil their tasks with the best long-term efficiency, with low maintenance, reliably and in a resource-saving manner.

This is complemented by a high degree of customisation and flexibility when it comes to system control. Each individual segment of the dryer is controlled separately. The benefit for the user: The processing procedure can be optimally adjusted. This means: Costs are minimised.

We offer a comprehensive service concept

Maximum system availability is a crucial aspect for maintaining the profitability of your production. In complex production processes, one failure is enough to interrupt the entire process. Our claim is to ensure maximum productivity for you over the entire life cycle of your DRYTEC dryer or humidifier.

From consulting and development to production, assembly and maintenance - we support you with a wide range of services throughout the entire life cycle of your investment. Digital solutions such as remote service are a matter of course for us.
