Web Dryer

The Macrowave RF drying system selectively heats only the patterned coatings on the web and leaves the bound moisture in the substrate intact, which helps prevent over drying, distortion and shrinking. Compared to typical hot-air and IR dryers, this 1,500-ft/min system reportedly needs 1/3 to 1/5 the floorspace, permits lower web temperatures and offers up to 80 percent energy savings. Makeready is accelerated with the RF's instant power. The dryer handles webs up to 120 in. wide and meets OSHA safety regulations and FCC standards on communication non-interference.Radio Frequency Co., Inc., 508/
