Heat Technologies, Inc. held an Open House in Atlanta, Georgia. HTI demonstrated a 50″ long Spectra HE™ Ultra Drying System (patent pending) for drying solvent coatings which would replace a 20′ dryer section. In the photo Gene Plavnik, President, is seen demonstrating the functioning of the new system, showing the design characteristics of this system vs. HTI’s water based drying systems, showing the quality of fabrication and discussing the many advantages of the system – increased production, reduced size, reduced energy consumption and reduced temperature. Twenty-one companies from North America and Europe attended the event. Attendees consisted of end users from varied industries – flexible, semi-rigid and rigid packaging materials, coated papers and Flexographic and Rotogravure press manufacturers for narrow, mid and wide web equipment. As a result, several new applications were identified and new RFQ’s were discussed.
