Innovative integrated energy cycle concept
A new development from Lambda Technology is also the innovative energy cycle concept, which can achieve energy savings of up to 80 percent compared to conventional drying methods. A multi-stage design enables the hybrid units to use the invested energy in a highly efficient way. For example, the waste heat of the heating module is used for recirculation processes. The otherwise normally unused energy is directed onto the substrate as warm air and is thus still utilised. The warm air, in turn, circulates several times as nozzle air in the recirculating air dryer.
Another advantage of air movement in the drying process is that coating reacts to air movement and heat. With the air flow, drying can be controlled in a targeted manner. Additionally, the hot air absorbs volatile substances such as water and solvents and removes them from the substrate.
In future, the Lambda Technology hybrid dryer will be available in various web widths (200 mm, 320 mm, 400 mm, 530 mm, 670 mm, 1050 mm, 1250 mm , 1700 mm) with a 1 m run length unit. It will also be possible to design all web widths. This capability allows processes to be considerably accelerated, and the user can apply the drying profile in many process-optimised variants. The run length of the hybrid, by the way, is only approx. 40 to 60 % of a fossil oven system.
All radiation and air technology functions are integrated into each unit, and counter-reflectors are available as an option. The systems are also available as conveyor belt systems, optionally with a suction belt or for roll-to-roll applications, and also for Ex applications.
About Lambda Technology
Lambda Technology Gesellschaft für thermische Prozesse is a family-run company based in Grafing in the high-tech belt near Munich.
