Saddle Dryer

With our Laboratory Saddle Dryer, a printing company can determine the length of time required for the ink to dry when a newspaper or other publication is being printed.

To assist laboratories in their quest to provide precisely formulated and controlled products, we are offering two new models of our Laboratory Saddle Dryer.

The Laboratory Saddle Dryer measures the amount of time required for inks and coatings to dry at different temperatures. Exact temperature settings give exceptional accuracy for routine quality control work and for extended R & D projects. Various types of inks, vehicles, and coatings at different thicknesses can be comparatively tested. The mode of heat transfer allows faster operation and tighter control than was previously possible with the blower/convection models.

Excellent reproducibility is achieved through defined pressure of the substrate onto the heated surface.
