Drying Array of Small Plastic Strings

Customer extrudes plastic monofilament for use in a variety of applications, primarily for use as the cutting string on weed eaters and other weed cutting and string trimming equipment. They need a way to dry the 5mm diameter plastic after it has been washed, before it heads into an oven to be heated and stretched.  There are 4 plastic lines per machine, spanning a 3" total width.  Thus, 2 pieces of a Model 110003 3" (76mm) Aluminum Super Air Knife, 1 mounted above and 1 mounted below the lines, will be able to dry all 4 lines at one time.  Due to the small diameter of the plastic extrusions, there is sufficient space between each line to allow the airflow to get between the lines and sufficiently dry all sides of the plastic.
