Blair Mills -- Belton, South Carolina
Manufacturer of Terry Cloth Towels and Washcloths
required additional drying capacity. With no available space and limited boiler
capacity, adding another loop dryer meant a considerable investment in floor space.
extractors might help, but would also snag terry cloth and mean a decrease in production.
|Solution: Blair Mills
decided to install a Radiation Systems' electric air-flow infrared (IR) predryer in the 12
ft. long space between its larger loop dryer and a solid brick wall. To save power
and avoid harming the cloth, a tach-speed switch turns the electric IR predryer off
whenever line speed dips under 7 yd/min.
