Pulp and Paper
Versatile and Economical
Large amounts of water must be removed when manufacturing paper. First, the fresh paper webs are pressed between large rollers. Next, hot air is frequently used during the final drying process. Lastly, the paper is ready to be packaged and transported.
Huge quantities of paper are subsequently consumed when printing all kinds of publications. The printing ink has to dry immediately on the fast-running printers/presses to prevent ink set-off. The use of hot air allows the sheets or rolls to undergo further processing in next to no time.
Another widespread application of hot air in the paper processing industry is the lamination of paper with plastic film. Hot air also is used during this process.
