Rapid Dry II uses dehumidified air to remove moisture from waterborne coatings and parts. Drying times are comparable to ovens offering the same drying capacity. The system from Optimum Air recirculates dehumidified air over the product. The dry air absorbs moisture from the coating without heating the substrate. Moist air is circulated through a series of filters and a chiller coil where moisture is condensed and drained out of the unit.
