TOW Ovens

The Sicam symmetrical single belt ovens are suitable for the thermosetting of polypropylene and polyester tows.


The proper permanence in the oven and the efficiency of the ventilation allow production of more than 2000 Kg/h with proper drying and retraction

Sicam has a particular care in the choice of the conveyor belts according to the production request of the customers, as the conveyor belt is a strategic component for the final quality of the nonwoven. The top conveyor is magnetically supported and in this case conveyor of course are metallic and chosen by Sicam among many kind of conveyors in order to find the best compromise between the final surface finishing of the non woven and the optimization of the maintenance and cleaning operation.

In addition we find the construction Sicam philosophy without sliding elements. this solution make possible an easy access and to inspect inside the oven reducing the maintenance time and costs.

The construction philosophy by modular section of 2250 mm of length, used by Sicam since many years in its production range, makes easy the transport operation all over the world allowing a simple load in containers if preassembled machinery section.

SICAM produces installations and equipment whose output is used, for example, in:

  • PP fibers
  • PES fibers
