Jet Star Metal Strip Drying

Jet Star Metal Strip Drying
High Efficiency, Uniform Drying, Stable Operation

The Busch JET* STAR™ Strip Drying System uses high volume, low pressure heated air to rapidly dry moving metal strips. The JET* STAR™ Strip Dryers produce predetermined functional wiping patterns on the strip surface. Air flow and thermal energies are applied in an intensive and uniform manner, resulting in rapid water disengagement and almost instantaneous mist removal from the strip. Spent heat is dissipated in the dryer, thus reducing re-deposition of airborne fog and mist.

JET* STAR™’s uniformity and repeatability of the drying process across and along the strip enhances:

  • Film disengagement
  • Mist transportation
  • Evaporation

Problems associated with recirculated systems such as the buildup of CO2, CO, humidity, temperature, and corrosion are substantially eliminated.

JET* STAR™ strip dryers are designed using centrifugal fans with backwardly curved wheels which consume less horsepower and create less noise compared to other designs. Most JET* STAR™ Strip Drying Systems consists of a supply air fan, connecting duct, floe control dampers, air heater, and the JET* STAR™ Strip Dryer. Steam or natural gas-fired heating systems are available.
