and PowerDry Plus
are high evaporation capacity air dryers for all coated paper and board grades. Compact air dryers are efficient dryers for narrow and medium width machines with low space requirements. Coater dryer family also includes contactless web turning dryer TurnFloat
web coolers and PowerFloat nozzle technology products.
“Working together with Metso we improved the energy efficiency of coating machine 3,” says Matti Korhonen, Assistant Process and Quality Manager. “We have been very pleased with the results. We are now using close to 20% less gas-generated energy for drying coating than before.”
