Biancalani AIRO® 24: Power in the air
AIRO® 24, the new and original high-efficiency dryer for
continuous and open-width tumbling treatments of woven,
nonwovens and knitted fabrics. A high-quality finishing style
which has no equal in the world. The AIRO® style.
The AIRO®24 principle
Fabric moves at very high speed, suspended and transported by
the air flow, in alternate directions... this is the heart of
AIRO®24 treatment. The special grids placed in front of the
channel openings allow the fabric to discharge the accumulated
kinetic energy while it acquires a body, volume, drape and
better stability, getting rid of any excess of humidity at the
A very wide range of materials is suitable for AIRO®24
treatment. The flexibility of its functions allow this machine
to adapt to any type of product: natural fibers (cotton, linen,
ramie, jute, silk, wool, and blends), artificial fibers
(viscose, cupro, polynosic, polyamide, Tencel, Lyocell, Modal),
synthetic fibers (PES, nylon, acrylic, PP, PU, PVC) in all types
of construction such as woven, knitted, flock and nonwoven, with
different application: apparel, upholstery, technical textiles.
No limits on weight and width. Results are obtained in complete
safety and absence of defects.
Steaming at the inlet
An exclusive continuous steaming unit can be installed at the
inlet of AIRO®24. This device acts evenly on the whole width of
the fabric during the passage immediately preceding the entrance
in the machine.
With this unique and patented device, which intelligently
controls and optimizes the direction switching of the air which
drives the fabric, AIRO®24 can finely modulate the intensity of
the mechanical action independently from the drying power. From
lightweight materials to heavier ones made of delicate yarn,
every type of fabric will benefit from the smart-switch
technology, with a considerable increase in the drying capacity
of the machine. AIRO®24 smart-switch can be installed also on
the tandem versions of AIRO®24.

Synchronized internal steaming
A specially designed steam distribution system - composed by
two steam delivery units placed at each entrance of the
treatment channel – injects the desired amount of steam right
into the air flow, which efficiently pushes it through the
fabric throughout the whole length of the channels. The result
is a perfectly uniform steaming action, thanks to the fast
movement of the fabric and the synchronization of the steaming
direction which also prevents condensation. Steam delivered at
the right moment, in the right place, with AIRO®24.
Everything under control
Main 12.1" touch screen with auxiliary touch panel at fabric
exit, redesigned user interface, new real-time monitoring,
history and statistics functions, open interconnection with
existing monitoring systems.
With AIRO®24 the loop of terry relaxes and is positioned
vertically to the base of the handwork and the tandem version
(patented), designed especially for the needs of manufacturers
of terry, knit and velvet, which offers twice the drying
capacity compared to the standard machine. On this variant, it
is also applicable the smart-switch device which further
increases the machine drying ability.
