         Why retire a workhorse that’s still doing the job?
         Simply put, your old dryer may be costing you a bundle. In fact, today’s
         Wenger dryer could save you enough in operating efficiency alone to cover the
         replacement of your old dryer. Additionally, our new advanced dryer designs
         give you less potential for cross-contamination and bacteria build-up; feature
         new direct drive spreaders for level product bed and uniformity of final prod-
         uct moisture; and afford quicker, easier inspection and cleaning.

         Contact us now. With new concepts and fresh initiatives, we’re ready to help
         you develop the product possibilities of the future.
