Strayfield

RF drying systems

Since introducing radio frequency (RF) drying systems to the textile industry more than 30 years ago, Strayfield has remained an innovator and world leader in this technology.

Today the company has many hundreds of RF systems installed all around the world – drying everything from bump tops to the very latest in technical packages.

Maximum efficiency

Today’s yarns are being wound more densely and are becoming more thermally-sensitive. This makes it necessary for Strayfield to ensure that its equipment can operate at maximum efficiency and still dry these yarns at low temperatures (80°C in respect of cotton). All systems are specially tuned to achieve this.

As winding technology advances and fibres have become more thermally sensitive, Strayfield’s technology has advanced in order to process them. The ‘second generation’ Strayfield systems incorporate RF with ‘intelligent vacuum’ to ensure very low drying temperatures – approximately 65°C and with smaller generators.

Strayfield now offers dryers up to 125kW in capacity, which are capable of processing up to 8 tonnes of cotton in an hour, depending on input/output moisture levels.

Competitive

In 1996 Strayfield established a modern factory in India, which was completely re-built in 2008 to double its capacity. Without detriment to the company’s usual high standards, all Strayfield textile drying equipment is now thus extremely competitively priced, when compared to lower-specified competitors’ equipment coming from China and Europe

Meets all regulations

Every system is guaranteed to meet the prevailing regulations in respect of radio frequency interference in different parts of the world and health and safety at work.
