Flash-Cure Heat Shields Equalize Edge-to-Edge Temps
Supplied as standard on the company's Air-FlashTM flash cure unit, the heat shields work in concert with the high-output infrared heater and forced air system to deliver ultra-high curing/drying rates with superior edge-to-edge temperature uniformity. "The combination of high output infrared curing and forced air applied evenly between heat shields, provides the widest possible curing area and curing rates, without the over-curing of garment centers or under-curing of edges associated with exceeding the limits of conventional flash cure units," says Vasilantone.
The Air-Flash offers the versatility of selecting air only, full heat and air, or modulated air velocity and heat (high-low).
The outer skin and side handles are cooled for operator safety by an adjustable air diverter system instead of a conventional fan speed control. Heavy-duty side handles and locking casters come as additional standard safety features. An optional heavy-duty stand is also available.Three models are offered: A 2000 watt (120V) "Air Flash 1818" with 18 x 18 in. heater surface, a 3500
Optional on all Air-Flash models is an Auto-Flash upgrade that rotates the head into place above the pallet with the touch of a foot pedal, and automatically rotates the head away from the pallet after a user-adjustable dwell time has elapsed, to prevent the burning of garments that occurs when operators become distracted. Two models are available: an 18 x 18 inch and an 18 x 24 inch, both in 120 or 240 volts.
