Impingement Technology

Convection air-impingement system can be used to dry or heat products that are produced in a configuration that impedes airflow through the product. This technology utilizes columns of high velocity hot air directed at the product surface via nozzles mounted above and below the product. The nozzles create streams of air that impinge on the product's surface, disrupting the boundary layer of water.

Oven for Catalytic Converters

The company developed an oven design that is used in the multiple stages for the process of a catalytic converter, including substrate, chemical formation and container. The hearth of the catalytic converter is a ceramic substrate that is impregnated with materials to capture the depleting-ozone-layer hydrocarbons. After the application of these materials to the substrate, they get dried. Nozzles drive hot air through the substrate to dry them. This particular process operates at a production rate of 180 per hour with an operating temperature of 350oF (177oC).
