Cherokee Finishing Company,
Decorative Print Division of Spartan Mills
|Problem: Customer was
experiencing excessive equipment failure on their older, ribbon-type, electric
dryer. The element failures were causing Cherokee's maintenance costs to spiral and
were disrupting production schedules almost daily.
||Analysis: The ribbon-type
electric infrared unit was inadequate for removing large amounts of water from the
fabric. It is likely that the moisture condensing on the foil strips caused them to
corrode and the elements to fail.
|Solution: Cherokee worked
with Duke Power to select Radiation Systems' air-flow electric IR because of its
simplicity of operation, minimal maintenance, precise temperature control and energy
