Bekaert Solaronics will supply Hangzhou Dongda Paper Co. Ltd with a 3-rows infrared GemDryer® and one Energy Recovery System (ERS) for coat drying on its PM2. This order comes just after the installation in 2016 of two GemDryer® and two ERS after-press and existing coater on the PM1 of Zhejiang Dongda Paper Co., Ltd. Dongda Paper manufactures coated recycled board.
Bekaert Solaronics has a long-lasting experience in the optimization of non-contact drying systems. The combination of the GemDryer® with the ERS will help to increase the machine speed-up after press and coating stations and realize significant energy savings by using directly the exhaust from the infrared dryers as an energy source for the air dryer.
Moreover, thanks to their compactness and coupled with the high performance Gem12+ emitters, the GemDryer® systems meet the customer needs in terms of high power density, drying flexibility and efficiency and ease of maintenance.
