The energy-saving compact combination of infrared and air drying
qDry Pro is a space- and energy-saving drying concept that combines infrared and air drying. The energetically coupled air hood is heated solely by the IR waste heat and thus does not require its own heat source.
qDry Pro from Voith is ideally suited for use after one- or double-sided coating units. The compact technological solution combines two drying procedures that optimally supplement one another in the tightest space: gas-heated infrared dryers and an integrated air dryer.
While the infrared radiators homogeneously heat and fix the coat, the integrated hot air drying section forces the post-evaporation process at high air speeds with moderate web temperatures. The waste heat of the upstream infrared radiators is used for heating the air stream so that no separate heat source is required.
Due to its compact, flat and modular design which can be equipped with all Voith IR emitter types, qDry Pro can be flexibly adapted to local conditions. Integration of InfraMatic CD profiling systems is also possible.
