From batch ovens and conveyorized systems to sophisticated flotation dryers for delicate films, ASI can provide the right custom solution for your drying and curing requirements. We believe that knowledge, experience, and commitment are key factors in attaining the best drying solution. Our engineers have the product knowledge and process expertise to establish the right blend of innovation, practicality, and cost effectiveness.
Having the most comprehensive array of drying technologies is only part of the answer… knowing how and what technology to use is equally important.
By working together, we seek to incorporate the clients’ unique knowledge of their product with ASI’s comprehensive knowledge of drying technologies.
Every custom dryer design begins with the ADDS (Advanced Dryer Design and Simulation) computer model developed exclusively for ASI. The model integrates theoretical and empirical data regarding product parameters (mechanical, optical, chemical, physical), drying constraints, operating objectives (e.g. speed, space limitations), and dryer characteristics to model dryer operation within 1% of the actual performance.
ASI engineers can then draw upon an unequaled inventory of patented component and system designs to provide the most appropriate drying solution. By continuously incorporating new technologies, ASI is able to improve product performance while maintaining cost-effectiveness.
ASI’s position as the industry leader in drying and web handling technology is based on their ability to provide the most appropriate and cost-effective solutions. ASI drying systems have proven their ability to perform in some of the most demanding applications in the converting and paper industry; including but not limited to…
