Careful adjustment of the infrared emitters as to wavelength, shape and power output to the properties of the product to be heated is essential to the result. Radiation precisely adjusted to the paint's absorption properties is rapidly converted into heat inside the paint, and water and other solvents evaporate, while the material and the surroundings remain cooler and are spared. In this way, infrared drying speeds up production, improves quality and at the same time saves energy and costs.
Production bottlenecks often occur as a result of tougher production demands, where the existing drying system can no longer keep pace. This can often be solved by an infrared booster section , which is positioned in front of the existing drying system.
Your advantages with infrared drying
- Heating requires no contact
- High heat transmission capacity
- Wavelength adjusted to the substrate and the paint system - Electrical and gascatalytic IR systems offer short wave to long wave IR
- Short response times enable good control and regulation
