Stalam has developed specific engineering solutions to get the best out of the Radio Frequency technology for the drying of glass fibres:
full stainless steel construction of inlet and outlet tables, ceiling and floor of the drying cabinets, electrodes, moist air exhausters
special strong, modular type conveyor belt, made of fire-proof composite material
wide conveyor belt and electrode system, to ensure low power density, gentle drying and better moisture removal using low electrode voltages (ie. no arcing occurs in the drying cabinets)
automatic electrode voltage control system at the optimal values, separately in each drying cabinet (this ensures perfect drying in all working conditions, irrespective of partial or full loading and of actual inlet moisture content)
power adjustment circuit through variable motorised coupling capacitor, with no need to adjust continuously the upper electrode position
additional anti-condensation units for the drying cabinets to avoid water droplets falling onto the product
air or water cooling system of the triodes, at the customer’s choice
oversized triode and key components, for longer life and better reliability
Other than the above standard features, Stalam can provide customised solutions to satisfy any process requirement.
Stalam offers a wide range of Radio Frequency equipment specifically designed for the drying of glass fibres in various forms - mainly direct rovings, assembled rovings, yarns and chopped strands.
Chopped strands can be dried quickly and efficiently without any air movement, thus reducing almost completely the dust formation in the production department.
