Infrared & Ambient Air Systems
Drying water based finishes, adhesives, inks, and top coatings with a combination of infrared and ambient air is often more efficient than conventional air only drying systems. Our heat processing pilot testing facility is set up to demonstrate this technology.
This infrared and ambient air dryer positioned above an existing tenter frame dries a water based adhesive on foam. The system is equipped with zone control across the width of the product.
The pictured two zone process dryer dries water based inks on paper and film. The ambient air impingement works to protect the heat sensitive webs while the infrared energy evaporates the water in the ink. The system is supplied complete with support framework, product support, supply and exhaust air provisions, as well as feedback temperature control.
Top Coat Dryer
Glenro offers system designs to accommodate any preferred web path or available space. This arched impingement dryer provided four independent zones of temperature control in the machine direction to dry a water based top coating on film without skinning or blistering.
Three zone vertical infrared and air dryer dries a PTFE dispersion coating on glass fabric. This is the first stage of a larger Glenro Integrated Energy DeliveryŽ System that completely heat processes PTFE coated glass fabric.
Residual Moisture Dryer
Vertical two-pass infrared and ambient air impingement dryer removed residual moisture from a glass fabric and then preheated the product prior to a heat cleaning operation.
