High Speed, Eco-Friendly RF Web Drying System
December 3, 2012
Radio Frequency Co., Inc.- The Macrowave RF Drying System provides greater efficiency than conventional convection and infrared systems for the high-speed drying of water-based patterned glue and coatings in the converting and textile industries. The system selectively heats only the patterned coatings (wetted sections) on the web and leaves the bound moisture in the substrate intact, thus preventing over-drying, distortion, and shrinking. Capable of operating at speeds up to 2000 FPM, this system needs one-third to one-fifth of the floor space required for hot air and IR dryers, permits lower web temperatures, and provides up to 80% energy savings.
