All kinds of evaporative inks and coatings are quickly and efficiently cure-dried at proper temperatures in A.W.T.'s Jet Stream™ modular gas dryer. This drying system is ideal for handling a variety of substrates such as vinyl, plastic, paper, banners, glass, digital imaging and membrane switches. The Jet Stream can also cure water based textile inks.
This dryer is engineered with a chamber that utilizes large volume air knives to create jet streams. These streams of air permeate screen printed images for fast drying ability. As solvent is released from the print it can be exhausted or re-circulated with a simple adjustment.
A.W.T.'s unique system keeps hot air in the dryer. This reduces energy costs and unwanted fumes. Re-circulating hoods force all solvents into the exhaust system for safe shop environment.
The air flow/hold-down system helps hold substrates in place on the conveyor as it moves. The high velocity exhaust blowers create negative pressure. Negative pressure prevents problems due to sheet fluttering even when the stock is very thin and lightweight.
The Jet Stream dryer can be expanded at any time by adding heating, cooling or conveyor sections as production demands increase. The filter system, gas train assembly and the internal system are easily accessible for maintenance and service. A.W.T.'s cooling system with high velocity ambient temperature air velocity, cools down substrates so they can be stacked and handled right off the conveyor.
A.W.T.'s preheat "bump" high energy quartz tubes instantly elevate temperatures to start the drying process quicker and enable drying at even higher rates.
