Ircon Drying Systems AB, Svetsargatan 8, SE-462 56 Vänersborg, Sweden


Ircon-Solaronics was born in July 2018 when the Argynnis Group AB, already the owner of Ircon Drying Systems AB acquired Solaronics SA.

Combining both brands, under the flag Ircon-Solaronics, the group can offer an enriched range of products and services for non-contact drying of Paper & Board and other industries where both companies are active.

Since its foundation in 1967, Solaronics S.A. had become one of the world's leading suppliers of gas-fired/ electrical infrared systems with integrated convection drying and has recently celebrated 50 years’ experience of supplying drying solution to the Paper & Board industry based on gas infrared technology, and also electrical infrared technology after the acquisition of IRT in 2000.

Ircon was founded in 1989 and has over 30 years’ experience of IR-heating. In 2001 INHAB with Infrared products for automotive and food industry and in 2009 ITRONIC with Infrared products for the paper industry were acquired. From 2013 Ircon is a part of the Argynnis Group.

Our product range includes gas infrared dryers and electrical infrared dryers of the highest quality and performance as well as complementary air drying solutions and web support devices. All our infrared dryers can also be coupled to an air dryer for an optimal combination of infrared and air drying with our Energy Recovery System. Today, around 1 500 systems have been installed worldwide for the paper and board industry. We offer complete non-drying solutions for quality and energy rebuilds as well as new machines or new coating lines, either by supplying new dryers or upgrading existing dryers.
