IPCO Introduces Continuous Film Casting System Combining Precision Slot Die and Compact Venturi Dryer at ICE USA

IPCO’s innovative drying system for high quality film casting

Process systems manufacturer IPCO has introduced a high precision continuous casting system that enables the production of membrane and film products to exceptionally narrow tolerances. The system is based on a polished steel belt and combines a precision slot die with a compact and efficient Venturi dryer and will be at booth #442 at ICE USA.

The slot die, supplied by TSE TROLLER, applies a homogenous layer of liquid product onto the moving steel belt with outstanding consistency of thickness. The cast layer is then transported through the Venturi drying unit to achieve a stable, high quality product in an extremely efficient manner.

The solvent – aqueous or organic – is quickly evaporated, resulting in an end product almost completely free of tension both laterally and longitudinally.

This high precision system dramatically improves the casting process, enabling the production of film products to exceptionally narrow tolerances without any risk of skin formation or costly faults and imperfections in the final material. The inherent benefits of this indirect drying solution also result in an exceptionally high degree of energy efficiency.
