Wisconsin Oven manufactures paper pulp drying ovens that use high-velocity convection technology to evaporate the moisture from molded parts with heated air. Molded fiber pulp packaging material is environmentally friendly and uses recycled paper products such as paperboard, newsprint, and other post-consumer and post-industrial waste. These items are shredded and mixed with water to form a slurry, which is then vacuum molded to draw out excess moisture. In order to remove the remaining water, the parts are dried in a molded fiber paper pulp drying oven. The final products include fast-food drink or cup trays, egg trays or filler flats, egg cartons, a wide array of protective packaging for consumer and industrial products, as well as disposable plates, bowls, plant trays, and clamshell containers.
The molded paper pulp industry is very diverse, and uniformly drying non-uniform molded fiber pulp shapes and complex geometries can be tricky for short-run product manufacturers. Paper pulp drying ovens are available in multiple heating zones. Heat recovery systems can also be offered for even better efficiency. We offer molded fiber pulp packaging drying solutions for both thick walls (Type 1) and thin wall (Transfer Mold or Type 2) product manufacturing lines. Whether you are considering a new line installation or the replacement of an existing process dryer, Wisconsin Oven offers unique drying solutions to meet each challenge.
