Narrow Web Dryers

ASI manufactures dryers and ovens for a full range of web applications. Narrow webs (2” to 18”) require the same dryer sophistication as wider webs, including the low/high speed applications and the ability to float the web when non-contact web handling is needed.

Internal Air Turns

A two-sided coating requires that this 2.5” web is dried via this floatation dryer. Note the web path – the entrance (top) and exit (bottom) are at the same end. An internal 180o air turn is used to turn the web without contact. This application was for a flexible circuit board material.

Clam-Shell Designs

A single zone high-temperature dryer for specialty coatings required a cross-machine temperature profile of +/- 5 oF. Note “clam-shell” configuration.

Clean Room Dryers

Stainless steel dryers (inside and out) are often used in clean-room environments for the medical products and photographic industries.
