Smart material meets innovative design
The thinner shell of the EvoDry steel cylinders allows heat transfer to be increased by 7%. Above that, the revolutionary design of the Voith drying cylinders enables the maximum level of safety and performance. Using EvoDry, the width of the web can be increased by 160 mm because the shell is welded directly to the head, providing a maximum effective working width. Thanks to their ductile material, EvoDry steel cylinders are especially safe, avoiding the kind of spontaneous breakages that can occur in cast iron cylinders.
Substantial reduction in investment and running costs
The use of EvoDry can reduce the number of drying cylinders in the pre-dryer and after-dryer section. Apart from a reduction of the entire dryer weight by up to 260 t, the length of the building can be cut by 6 m and one drive point can be eliminated. This results in investment costs reduced by EUR 400,000 and an additional drop in annual electricity costs of EUR 80,000.
Efficient drying for any application
The EvoDry steel cylinder offers outstanding performance and is suitable for drying graphic papers as well as board and packaging papers. For the use in tissue machines, Voith offers the EvoDry Y steel yankee.
