GREEN BAY, WI — A solid-state lithium battery company has chosen Green Bay, Wisconsin-based dryer supplier, ASI, a division of Thermal Technologies Inc., to provide the drying system for its new coating line. The four-zone drying system will provide electrically heated convection air and will allow the battery company to scale up operations.

The multi-zone, roll support drying system will be over 80 feet long and will include an external retraction system to allow for easy access to the dryer’s interior for web up and cleaning. Variable frequency drives on the supply and exhaust fans, along with resistant temperature detectors near the heat source and in the supply air ducts, will allow for precise temperature and air flow control to the web. The dryer will be controlled via a distributed PLC system.

ASI specializes in custom drying, curing, and cooling solutions for the roll-to-roll and converting industries. Learn more at
