AeroDry Through-Air Conveyor Dryers are the choice for fiber and web applications that require gentle through-flow processing and support throughout the heating process. Products requiring extended dwell time, in-line temperature profiling for heat setting, thermal bonding and cooling are all accommodated. Conveyor bed permeability is sized to optimize drying performance.

Bühler conveyor dryers are available in modular or field assembly configurations. Customers enjoy reduced installation cost and start-up time with the standard modular design. These units are fully assembled and tested at the factory prior to shipping. The field assembly option is ideal for job sites with very limited access, where customers prefer to assemble the dryer completely on site.
