An air-flotation drying oven, which dries the coating ink carried by a thin
polyester film or web, includes web stabilizer bars.
Fig. 1 shows a side view, and Fig. 2 a front view, of two of the many
stationary air bars 11 and 12 out of which high velocity air (about 6,000 feet per
minute) flows (see arrows 13 and 14) to support web 15 as it travels left-to-right
in Fig. 1.
Each end of at least the bottom air bars 11 includes a web stabilizer metal
plate 16 which functions to restrict or dampen sideways movement of the web.
Plate 16 is perpendicular to the flat face 17 of the air bar. The width
dimension of the plate is parallel to the direction of web travel. The plate extends
above face 17 by a minimum distance which is equal to the clearance between
the top and bottom air bars, plus an additional amount equal to one-half of that
