The drying process is one of the major energy-intensive steps in papermaking. It also offers the greatest opportunity to achieve significant increases in process efficiency, performance, quality and productivity. In addition to the methods listed below, Airtherm offers Flat-bed Thru Drying systems as well.
Floatation Drying – The most effective way to dry the majority of non-porous and low porosity webs. Floatation Dryers can be designed for single or double sided drying applications and produce a higher overall drying rate.
Impingement Drying – Well established nozzle configurations yield high heat transfer ratios and efficient hood balance on systems ranging from low velocity / temperature to high speed / performance.
