UniDryer®

UniDryerThe Bekaert Solaronics UniDryer® is a combined infrared and air drying system in which high drying performance gas infrared emitters are alternated with high temperature and velocity nozzles. The UniDryer® system benefits from a very high flexibility for the best product quality.

The gas infrared emitters are taking care of energy transfer by infrared radiation to the surface to be heated.

Thanks to their proven very long lifetime, machine uptime is optimized and the maintenance costs are reduced.  

The convective part of the dryer, built in with state of the art flotation nozzles, handles the mass transfer by blowing hot air coming from the emitter’s flue gases. Thanks to improved convection of the system, no heat exchanger or external gas burner are required.

Efficiency can be improved even more through our ERS (Energy Recovery System) by recirculating the final exhaust air from the UniDryer® into an air dryer.

Installation costs in your machine are minimized thanks to the high compactness of the system with integrated air fans and motors that don’t require recirculation ducting.

Product benefits:

  • Optimal quality
  • Low operating and installation costs
  • High flexibility
  • Easy implementation
