The FORMAX™ 12” Drum Dryer is designed for drying hand sheets rapidly with precise temperature control.The 12” diameter x 16” face drum accommodates a wide range of hand sheet dimensions. By controlling the drum speed and temperature, rapid and consistent sheet drying is achieved. The drum temperature is digitally controlled with a thermocouple feedback sensor. The dryer is unique in the use of air heaters (3,200 watts) to avoid the potential safety hazards associated with older liquid or steam filled drums. A continuous wool felt carries the sheets through the dryer.
