PTFE Mesh Belts – PTFE open mesh belting is ideally suited for conveying products within highly efficient air distribution systems allowing optimised moisture removal to take place and is commonly used within ultra violet and infra red dryer units.
The open area allows maximum air flow optimising drying times whilst its extreme properties make it a natural choice for dryer manufactures
PTFE mesh belts are used in applications such as the drying of printed products for example; point of display stands, T-shirts, glass and mass produced paper prints.
Print dryers usually opt for Ultra violet, Infra red or hot air as the heat source to dry.
Other applications range from the drying of cereals, non woven’s, charcoal interlinings, carpet & carpet tiles, printed circuit boards and shrink-wrap tunnels but to name a few.
