3 Suitable Applications for Process Air Heaters

As industry leading experts, the team here at Airtec are committed to the provision of humidity solutions and air knife drying technology. After all, there are a variety of different industrial markets that can benefit from the implementation of our product range. In fact, our process air heaters, which are designed for use with a centrifugal fan or side channel blower producing a stream of clean, dry, hot and controlled air, are incredibly versatile and can be used in a variety of different applications. Read on as we go over the top three…


The food process industry often relies on the circulation of hot air at closely controlled temperatures inside commercial ovens in order to ensure that the final product is safe for consumption. A process air heater can provide such a service at low pressures so that businesses are able to obtain an efficient manufacturing standard without sacrificing the quality of the stock.

Shrink Wrapping

In order to protect produce that is manufactured in a warehouse or factory, it is often covered in a shrink wrap plastic. With this said, the application of such specialist technology and formation of the plastic relies on certain tools in order to ensure that humidity or dust does not affect the wrapping process. A process air heater working in conjunction with a fan or blower can provide the controlled hot air that is required in order to carry out shrink wrapping effectively and efficiently.


Humidity plays an important role in many industrial applications, particularly when it comes to drying using a process air heater. By decreasing the amount of steam that is in the air, the temperature of industrial produce can be reduced to specific temperatures in order to create an air-drying effect. This is particularly important in industries that deal with the manufacture and distribution of clay products.

When it comes to industry application, the team here at Airtec recognise the importance of customer satisfaction which is why we provide all our clients with a free consultation and support service. After all, peace of mind is as integral as the product itself! To find out more information, get in contact with a member of the Airtec team and ask about our process air heaters today!
