Economical and ecological air dryers can fulfill all the requirements for higher paper quality, lower production costs and improved runnability. Valmet's coating drying selection offers energy efficient drying solutions for all kinds of coating drying.
With air dryers, energy efficiency can be up to 90 % thanks to high drying rates and effective nozzle technology. Energy savings are 50 % compared to infra-red drying since the energy efficiency of infra-red drying is much lower, only 40 %, which means higher energy consumption and more costs. Air dryers are also environmentally friendly - 50 % less fuel is burned and CO2 produced.
In addition, air dryers require much less maintenance time and costs and offer higher evaporation capacity. The maintenance savings are remarkable, since there is no need to regularly replace IR bulbs or emitters.
