High Speed, Eco-friendly RF Web Drying System Introduced for Patterned Water-based Glue and Coatings
A drying system that 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 is being introduced by Radio Frequency Co., Inc. The Macrowave RF Drying 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 percent energy savings.
