The RM system is characterised by having no enclosures supplied for either spray contamination or noise attenuation. The blower must be positioned a minimum of 3 metres (to prevent water ingress into the blower) and a maximum of 10 metres from the drying area (to prevent system performance losses). The blower type recommended for this system will be determined by such factors as the line speed and nature of the application.


  • Easy to install over existing lines
  • Low maintenance – robust and proven designs
  • Small footprints
  • Utilise ACI’s leading compact blower technology
  • UK manufactured
