Air Turns

In addition to providing high quality air turns for the converting industry, ASI has also provided air turns to handle webs inside flotation dryers, where contact with the web is not an option – i.e. optical films.  With several styles of air turns available, our design and engineering expertise can provide you with the best solution for your application.


Low Web Tension

Flotation air drums on a radius, deliver a lower volume and pressure of air to the product. In addition to being the choice for low-tension webs, this is also an excellent application for high temperatures.


High Web Tension

Air turn designed to deliver a high volume and pressure of air. This is a good application when high web tensions are used.


Multi-Pass Drying

ASI air turns can be used for multi-pass dryers, in an effort to reduce overall floor space of the dryers. Our air turns have been used in both horizontal and vertical (festooning) drying applications.
