Drying Systems and Environmental Compliance Solutions for Coating and Laminating Applications

B&W MEGTEC provides roll-to-roll drying, curing and thermal air handling systems for coating and laminating applications. Whether you need a small, value-priced roll support dryer, a custom-configured air flotation dryer or a complete coating line for a specialized application, B&W MEGTEC has the products and services to meet your requirements. B&W MEGTEC’s technical application and design engineers work with your process specialists or OEM suppliers to design systems that will provide reliable, high production performance.

B&W MEGTEC has years of experience and application knowledge for the tough drying and web handling applications such as slow-drying coatings and materials or thin film coating and laminating. Dryers can be equipped with a wide variety of nozzle configurations ranging from simple slot nozzles to sophisticated Coanda-style air bars and patented air foil systems. A full range of heat sources are available including steam, direct and indirect gas-fired, thermal oil, electric, hot water and IR. In addition, the air handling systems can be integrated into the dryer enclosure or stand-alone for remote installation.

B&W MEGTEC offers a wide range of custom or hybrid styles and designs, including designs for clean room applications:

  • Convection air/non-contact flotation
  • Convection/IR combination
  • Catenary convection air
  • Roll support
  • Festoon
  • UV
  • Tentering
  • Can/drum
  • Belt conveyor
  • Thru air
  • Inert

When the process requires pollution control systems for solvent-based applications, B&W MEGTEC also offers regenerative thermal oxidizers, solvent recovery, wet scrubbers, distillation and purification systems. B&W MEGTEC's waste heat recovery packages can “close the energy loop” between pollution controls and the process in order to reduce production costs.
