I have a print dryer which I use on gel/silver prints. I'm not sure at what point in the platinum process you want to use heat drying. It has been my experience that heat drying of sensitized paper results in at least one grade of contrast. So for cyanotype, chrysotype, van dyke brown, platinotype, kallitype I always air dry. Sometimes I|
use a small fan.
Once the print is made however, I can see no reason why it could not be dried on a print dryer.

Is anyone on the list using a heated print dryer (Premier or
Arkay, for example) to dry Pt/Pd or other alt prints? I was considering
buying one to replace and/or augment air drying on screens, but Iím leery
of anything that uses heat on a print, dry mount presses included.
