BRUCKMÜHL, Germany — The aLITE® drying systems from adphos group, leader in electrothermal drying and crosslinking systems, reportedly offer zero CO2 emissions and lower energy operation costs than gas convection systems. 

The company's developed and proprietary aLITE technology enables the ultra-fast (< 1 second) drying of water-based and solvent-based coatings, paint systems, and impregnations with minimal heating of the substrate materials. The technology is based on a strong photonic energy source in combination with integrated warm air, impingement ventilation and defined moisture absorption. Energy savings of 50% to over 70% compared to gas-fired drying systems can be achieved thanks to the highly dynamic, precisely controllable drying performance adjustment to the current coatings (in terms of speed, required solvents, evaporation rate, substrate properties, etc.). In addition, due to the spontaneous start/stop capability of aLITE dryers, there is no need for minute/hour preheating or standby operating cycles.

The aLITE dryer system enables a wide range of CO2-emission-free applications, both for thin-film printing and coatings, as well as for proven drying performance in seconds for thick layers (e.g. adhesive drying, impregnation processes or coloring systems).

Additionally, adphos offers customers an analysis and verification in order to replace existing drying systems (especially gas dryers) with aLIT systems, helping them benefit from the advantages of this unique platform technology.
