Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0864519A1] The appliance has at least one blowing section (2,3) with suspension jets (11) for blowing processing gas onto at least one side of the web (1). A radial ventilator (7,8) with a 360 degree spiral housing (22) supplies the suspension jets. The radial ventilators blow in a direction (19) parallel to the direction (27) in which the web travels. The current from the radial ventilator at each longitudinal end of each blowing section is deflected in a U-shape to the web.
