Heat is needed by the web to feed the evaporation of the ink solvents and to increase the temperature of the ink solids and web.
FlexAir’s Knowledge Base was envisioned to share an open conversation about dryer systems. Exploring costs of ownership, how a dryer system fits inside today’s modern production environment and reminding us how the laws of physics govern and limit how much we can reasonably expect.
While we can’t comprehensively summarize over 30 years of experience, we hope to diligently assemble a collection of valuable insights helpful to key business personnel for evaluating, selecting and working with different drying technologies. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with these sections and refer to them often.
