Aluminum and Steel

Speed up the drying and curing process for powder coating metal sheets and coils.

Industrial dryer for metal stripGas Infrared Systems for Metal Manufacturers

To produce high-quality, powder-coated aluminum and steel, oil and debris must be washed, cleaned, and dried before applying a powder coating. Marsden’s gas-powered IR drying systems heat up to 1850°F in just 5 seconds, providing instantaneous heat that is necessary for drying metal after treatments and curing powder coatings.

Using our Embedded Combustion™ emitters, our gas IR systems allow manufacturers to significantly reduce the time it takes to dry metal sheets and cure powder coatings, while at the same time reducing the amount spent on gas and maintenance.

If you are looking for a way to reduce costs and increase production speed, Marsden gas IR emitters are the most powerful and consistent drying solution in the industry!
