Macrowave High Speed Web Dryer

Radio Frequency's new system provides greater efficiency and enables the high-speed drying of water-based patterned glue and coatings at speeds previously reached only with solvent based coatings.

Radio Frequency introduces the new Macrowave radio frequency drying system. It provides greater efficiency than conventional web dryers and enables the high-speed drying of water-based patterned glue and coatings at line speeds previously reached only web dryerwith solvent based coatings. Key features include:

  • Patterned coating applications that selectively heats only the coated portions on the web, leaving the bound moisture in the substrate intact, preventing over-drying, discoloration, distortion, and shrinkage.  
  • Operates at web speeds up to 1500 FPM.
  • Needs one-fifth to one-third of the floor space required for hot air and IR dryers.
  • Permits lower web temperatures.
  • Provides up to 50% energy savings.
  • Reduces make-ready time because energy is only consumed in proportion to the load in the system.
