3 HOT AIR PRODUCTION


We decided in favor of the compressed hot air drying system which most closely resembles the methods used in professional grooming parlors.

In fact, the "suction" system is more stressful to pets and tends to flatten their hair leading to tensions and unnatural hair tearing without achieving the expected results.

Furthermore, in case of unsuitable collection nozzle dimensions (it should be rather small to follow the pet body structure), drying may prove rather difficult. Our equipment consists of a blower (A) and a heat exchanger (resistor 1400 W)  (B).

N.B: blowers may be placed in a separate room rather than in the working area to reduce noise.

Thanks to the nozzle, shaped to provide the appropriate air pressure, the drying process consists of a first water-removal (blow-away) stage, when the pet is still in the tub, followed by a final drying stage in the tub or on the shelf.

The two stages are automatically regulated.

The blower and heat exchanger are coordinated and controlled by the coin box like the electrovalve.

The noise Problem

The noise generated by the equipment in operation is a very important problem and its solution is not easy.

In general our approach is three-pronged:

Where possible we try to isolate, the motors in premises adjacent to the working areas;

We conduct advance inspections to avoid installing blowers and fans close to hallow "service conduits" housing piping and electric cables likey to and amplify and carry the noise to premises adjacent tho the working area;

We make extensive use of acoustic insulating materials and keep constantly up-to-date on the newest technologies.

The noisiest appliances are blowers, hair extraction systems and aspirators for liquids.

Motors should never be placed close to the ceilings and, should this be unavoidable, a "pyramidal" sound absorbing material should be applied. The same is true for partition w3alls. However, in some cases, the noisiest equipment can be mounted outside the working premises (for instance under a porch) and enclosed in a PVC cabinet for extra insulation.
