  • Drying Performance
    Available in gas, steam or electric heat, the AD-170 is the largest 170-lb machine available on the market boasting a 51.20 cu ft basket. Gas units have a heat input of 550,000 Btu/hr and airflow of 3,700 cfm providing unsurpassed performance.
  • Fewer Operator Errors
    ADC incorporates a state-of-the-art microprocessor control that provides simple and accurate operation. Automatic drying programs take the guesswork out of cycle selection and avoid wasting energy by automatically shutting the dryer off when the load is dry. For optimal performance, the control also prompts the operator to clean the lint drawers when necessary.
  • Durability
    Constructed with a welded cabinet, this machine incorporates a rugged trunnion and bearing assembly that supports the basket. Heavy-duty main door and large capacity lint drawer are designed to withstand the most rigorous application. Steam units utilize a steam damper system that keeps the coil continuously charged reducing water hammer and prolonging coil life.
