1,078,871. Drying web materials. PROCTOR & SCHWARTZ Inc. Feb. 21, 1966, [Feb. 25, 1965], No 7461/66. Heading F4G. A web drying apparatus comprises a. longitudinally extending chamber 34 having parallel floor and ceiling surfaces 38, 40 below and above which heated gaseous medium distribution boxes 30, 32 are respectively mounted and connected by inlet nozzles 42, 44 to project the medium under pressure into the chamber to provide cushions of the medium above and below the web to support it in floating manner, and outlet means comprising spaced apertures 48 are provided in the floor and ceiling surfaces between the nozzles to provide a diffused removal of the medium from the chamber. The nozzles extend transversely substantially the full width of the chamber and the area of the apertures is less than 70% of the area of the inlet nozzles. The medium passes from apertures 48 into upper and lower outlet chambers 50, 52 respectively for recirculation.
