An engineered infrared heating system that is used as a predryer or preheater is an effective solution for adding production capacity to an existing web processing line that uses convection dryers or a system of steam cans.
Thomas L. Green Prism oven can incorporate a Thermatec high radiant ceiling, a technology comparable to traditional firebrick oven ceilings. The material replicates the thermal emissivity and storage of firebricks using specially treated, anticorrosive steel backed by a high-density insulating board.
High temperature process heat is a fundamental tool in Industrial America’s toolbox. While some operations are accomplished in a static air environment, many high temperature operations — heat treating and stress relieving, for instance — require convection to achieve the necessary results.
