Evolution meets Revolution
Eco Power Dry
is the latest development from Eltosch, a pioneer in Infrared / Hot Air (IR/HA) drying systems for the graphics arts industry. This IR/HA drying module is composed of two integrated thermal air nozzles coupled with high performance IR radiators and a connection to an independent supply unit.
Eco Power Dry was designed around the innovative concept of autonomous module operation, ensuring complete reliability and functionality. If a module were to be rendered inoperable, production flow could be maintained by simply distributing the thermal deficit amongst the remaining modules. The newly developed air emission profile design delivers optimum drying results even with a reduced air volume. The user's ability to adjust emission profiles for the hot air nozzles is a unique feature. Customizable emission profiles allow the drying travel distance to be effectively optimized. Even the most demanding of application requirements can be met with minimal effort. Eco Power Dry is also designed to maximize energy efficiency. The intake air for the dryer modules is drawn from the press's own pneumatic system. By taking advantage of the press system's higher-than-ambient air temperatures, a significant energy savings is incurred through a reduced thermal differential.
The smallest available unit consists of a single IR/HA segment and a supply unit. Each segment contains a ventilator, heat register, system controls, and, of course, integrated safety technology. A complete dryer system consists of several compact units. Each unit contains its own microcontroller, allowing each segment to be individually calibrated to a specific air temperature, volume, and infrared power level. In addition, each unit contains its own safety controls. The modular design of Eco Power Dry allows for easy upgrades when required.
Due to its modular design, Eco Power Dry allows the user to individually calibrate the dryer settings for each unit in order to meet their specific process requirements. For example, specific hot air target values can be defined for each individual unit. This allows the user to create unique temperature zones within the drying distance.
Eco Power Dry is designed for the drying of dispersion coatings. The needs of every field within the graphics arts industry can be met, whether it be commercial printing, packaging, or enhancements. And because of the system's modular concept and ease of expandability, expansion requirements for special applications can be easily met through the installation of additional units.
