Converting Quarterly: Acoustic Drying of Paper, Films in Commercial Settings

Five years since publication of our technical paper, “How acoustically enhanced drying improves productivity, cuts energy consumption,” this article provides an update on the technology and how it is now being used in commercial settings. This firm’s patented acoustic drying system has helped converters, coaters and printers increase line speeds and dry at lower temperatures in a very small equipment footprint – at reduced energy consumption and lower carbon emissions.
