The Macrowave RF drying system selectively heats only the patterned coatings on the web and leaves the bound moisture in the substrates intact, which prevents over-drying, distortion and shrinking. The system is capable of operating at speeds up to 1,500 FPM and requires 1/3 to 1/5 of the floor space of hot air and infrared dryers. The system reduces make-ready time because RF power is instant on/off and energy is consumed only with a load in the system. The system handles webs up to 120 inches wide and meets OSHA and FCC regulations on communication noninterference.
