ASI has provided lab line dryers and ovens for many different applications. By its very nature, the R&D environment requires a lab dryer to deliver precise performance over a wide range of operating parameters. This may include high temperature applications (1000°F), through air drying, inert environments or the ability to process either a web or hand sheets.
This 14” web lab dryer is capable of utilizing several different styles of air bars and includes a removable conveyor belt system for running hand sheets. With electric heat and an internal air supply fan, the footprint is small.
So as to simulate the drying characteristics of a same-plant commercial dryer, this 16” web lab dryer uses air flotation bars of the same size and spacing.
A two-zone dryer that drives hot air through the product (web or hand sheets) as it is carried through the dryer on a wire-mesh conveyor belt. The hot air modules (plenums) are on top of the dryer. Conveyor steering and tension controls are underneath the dryer.
