Flotation Dryers and Ovens

Flotation dryers are ideal for applications where the web is coated on both sides, or for delicate webs that cannot be mechanically supported. Flotation dryers direct heated air at the product from both sides, producing more effective heat transfer rates per running length of dryer. The specially designed nozzles support the product on a bed of air, thus the term “flotation”. As with any application you bring to our attention, Glenro will apply its process experience as we evaluate your performance criteria and the physical characteristics of the materials to be heated to form the basis of any system recommendation.
