Air Impingement Ovens and Dryers
High velocity air impingement dryers and ovens cut processing time in half when baking, toasting, roasting and heat treating a variety of food and industrial products.
Impingement ovens are ideal for rapid and uniform baking, roasting, toasting, cooking, curing, drying and cooling. They also require less floor space than conventional oven systems. Aeroglide custom designs each impingement processor for your unique product and process, utilizing one of four nozzle configurations (radius holes, V-jet, nozzle boxes or tubes). A variety of wire belt, continuous band and hinged slat conveyor designs are also available.
Impingement processing is ideal for many food applications, as well as the Nonwovens and Tobacco industries. For nonwovens, impingement processing offers high drying and finishing efficiency for coated and nonpermeable (nanofiber based) webs. In the tobacco industry, reconstituted tobacco sheet is efficiently dried or toasted with an impingement oven. The technology is best suited for products with a high surface area to volume ratio. The product tends to have a high surface area for heat transfer, and a minimal thickness for heat diffusion and moisture migration.
