New Glenro Dryer Reduces Moisture

A two-pass, energy-efficient, electric infrared dryer from Paterson, N.J.-based Glenro Inc. lowers moisture content in paper and other materials prior to calendering. Two webs, each in a face-to-face position, pass through the dryers 12 infrared heaters simultaneously at speeds of up to 600 feet per minute. The webs receive heated air via stainless steel tubes. The heated air helps break the boundary layer of air surrounding each moving web, remove vapors and accelerate the drying process. Heavily insulated walls help contain process heat, according to Glenro.The dryer uses a SCR control system that maintains constant product temperatures. Low-noise blowers provide quite operation.
