DRYER DESIGNS

ASI offers many different dryer configurations and designs to meet the specific and varied needs of our customers. Our dryer designs include flotation, roll support, through-air, vertical, clean room, infrared, lab line, and inert dryers.

Flotation Dryers

ASI is a leader in flotation drying systems that use air bars to float the web through the dryer without making contact with the web. Flotation drying provides:

  • Contactless drying

  • High heat and mass transfer rates for shorter dryer or faster throughput

  • Reduced maintenance due to no moving parts in the dryer enclosure

  • Good web stability

  • Versatility in applications, web materials, and web tensions

Roll Support Dryers

Roll support dryers are used for many applications and offer excellent web stability and edge curl control. Roll support drying systems can be configured in a multitude of ways, including:

  • Flat-pass or arched-roll-support

  • Direct-driven or tendency-driven idler rolls

  • Air bars above or below the web, or both, to precisely control the rate of drying

Through-Air Dryers

Through-air dryers (TADs) pull heated air through a porous web material as the web travels through the dryer on a wire or mesh belt. TADs are used for specific applications, including fiberglass mat, fiberglass veil, and other nonwovens.

For these applications, even air distribution is essential to achieving high quality, defect free product. ASI's TADs employ multiple distribution plates for controlled pressure drops and static air mixers to provide uniform air to the product.

Vertical Dryers

Vertical dryers are used when space is at a premium or to accommodate a specific web path. Common in the graphic arts industry, vertical dryers can be used for many applications and offer various configurations.
