- About Us
In today’s competitive marketplace, paper-based label and tape manufacturers are looking for better ways to produce a stable, lay-flat product. *MoistureTech™ uses the most advanced techniques in steam moisturizing to add moisture and eliminate curl, making stable lay-flat specifications achievable.
The MoistureTech steam applicator is a solution to improving the web’s cross directional flatness and imparting the proper amount of moisture without slowing line speeds or dripping condensate on the web. MoistureTech is a single-sided or dual-sided steam applicator and is custom designed for your existing line.
MoistureTech’s proprietary designed steam delivery system utilizes high velocity steam injection to ensure rapid moisturization of the web. Hence, more moisture penetrates the web in less time than with other steam delivery systems. The heart of MoistureTech’s design is the patented zone control valves and diffuser in an enclosed steam system that enables you to control moisture in intervals down to 6” across the web.
MoistureTech is equipped with interlocks to ensure no condensation is formed on the exterior of the applicators during start-up and an evacuation system for removing unabsorbed steam during moisturization.
